Babies and Birthdays

The Family

What a wonderful few days it was with Steve and his family. What good company Ben and Jake are …and how ‘edible’ Olly is. Emma and I were chatting about what a contented baby Olly is and that he is a Happy Soul and then we decided that Ben is a Sensitive Soul and that Jake is a Dramatic Soul …..potential Oscar winner …2035 lol.

We had hoped to manage the park one day but it rained and rained …and rained … with snow and a glimmer of sunshine in between. As consequence the 300 photos I took are a little samey …don’t worry, I have selected a few which I feel, demonstrate their souls and my wonderful few days..

The first three are sort of a role reversal as Ben looks more dramatic lol

Did someone say NO??

Is it safe yet?

Maybe a smile will help.

Ben, a book and a bear

Jake and Harley


Oh so contented Olly



Olly ....watching



My birthday arrived ...along with a very good pair of kitchen scissors and a cookery book I had been looking for, for ages …brilliant.

Note that the hair band is no longer on me

I had a really chilled pyjama day for my Birthday and Emma cooked me her special stew which I love, followed by …… drum roll please .....

Steve said he couldn't fit on 64 candles so 4 had to do lol

I didn't want to leave them as It was magical being with the boys but my second birthday celebration awaited at home.

Saturday arrived and Vicki and Jay cooked me a 3 course meal ….Yum.

Prawn and Courgette salad

Macaroni cheese with a twist (Emmental and wine)

Vicki’s Special Sponge with Vanilla butter cream and forest fruit jam … (Vicki’s own).

A large square of this was served to me with a 'cupcake' candle ...forgot to take a photo though.

You might think it’s a strange combination but each is something I love so why not have them on the same menu lol. …infact we started eating at four with a ‘Cream Tea’ …how I LOVE scones piled high with jam and cream but we had no room for the cheese board at the other end of the evening …still there is always today lol.

They gave me Chocolates and sunglasses …and then, when I go to a Promarker Demo in a few weeks I get money to spend.. If I don’t manage to spend there I have a couple of other ideas.

I hate photos of me as it just reminds me that I am aging rapidly and I'm no longer the young person I think I am ...but I had to pop this last one in for those that actually reached the end of this photo over load

Take Care xx

Well you certainly had a delightful birthday, lots of great food and love.
Edible Olly is adorable and I loved the picture of the two of you plus the different moods of the boys. The one with Jake and the cat by the gate was a good study.
Congrats on a wonderful 64th.

Extremely cute little guys, every photo made me smile. Ben and Jake remind me of one of my grandsons at that age, he's 19 now.

Happy Belated Birthday...mine is in March too.
