My Birthday with my Family

The perfect way to celebrate a birthday …in the midst of ones family …watching the grandsons play together.'Hungry Hippos ' was a great success.

We had a lunch prepared by Vicki and Jay, that was more like a Birthday Tea …everyone enjoyed it …it was such fun …and I then sat watching them all play together …adults and kids alike and listening to all the giggles was magical.

Later in the after noon I was brought a Birthday cake …not with 65 candles thank goodness … as I had to blow them out. …much to the joy of Ben and Jake, who cheered and clapped as the flames were extinguished in one blow. (not a flattering shot)

As for presents …they were perfect too. My main one from Vicki and Jay is a few days away in Inverness in a little hotel over looking the River Ness (booked for Mid May). To open on the day was a DVD of ‘Call the Mid Wife’ …I had moaned that I missed the series on the TV… and of course my Chinese meal that had to be postponed along with my craft shop, due to being unwell yesterday... my actual birthday ( all planned now for Tuesday )

Steve and Emma gave me some cash to spend on what ever I fancied .. and a rose bush called ‘A Mum in a Million’ and a really unusual pot to plant it in …a pottery one modelled on a leather milk maids bucket … it will sit on the door step to welcome visitors…. and I’m keeping the name label prominent so that every one can read it... lol.

I have to say this is one of the best birthdays ever.

Take Care xx

Happy Birthday Angie! What a wonderful treat you've had with your family and such thoughtful gifts. It must have been such a tonic! Fab pics I really enjoyed sharing. The rose bush will be such a great reminder too of how special you are.
Lots of love Jo x

Happy belated birthday Angie. I too was born in 1947 a bit later than you and weighing in at 5lbs 10oz. Think I was conceived about the time you were born! Bus pass is great and saves a heap of money.What do years mean anyway? I just wish they wouldn't fly so fast. Hugs Betty
