It’s not a birthday without cake. My lovely husband make me a ginger & mascarpone cheesecake, and chocolate muffins .
It was Adam’s birthday on 8th October. At his request I baked a chocolate and pistachio cake.
As you can see, he was rather pleased with it.
My neighbour Elsie was 100 yesterday.
Elsie was a child minder for many years. Here she is with two of her ‘babies’.
It was my Uncle John’s 70th birthday yesterday. As you can see the hat my sister knitted was a bit big!
It’s my lovely Boy’s birthday today! Happy birthday Alex and Jenny too!
I was a bit worried that it’d be a bit of a damp squib as we’re away. However, he’s had some lovely texts and our hotel worked out it was his birthday (we think from the card from me in our room)…
…and gave him this wonderful cake (it tastes every bit as good as it looks).
It’s SueC’s bithday today – so here is my portrait of her 🙂
Although, I’ve known her for sometime, it’s only been in the last year or so that we’ve become buddies. She’s a fantastic person, who happens to be beautiful and talented to boot (it’s enough to make you spit!).
Thank you for your friendship Sue – it’s really enriched my life, love you lots xxxxx.
To celebrate my birthday we had a little ‘at home’ on Saturday. The cakes were made by Dr Bones’ friend Jude. Jude should be made an MBE for services to cake. See yourself, she sells them at Wells Stores in Abingdon.
There was some CHEESE too…with THREE types of the wonderful Dr Karg
Lorna gave me some amazing flowers from the Eynsham Emporium
. As you can see, I didn’t have a vase big enough!
Here is Peter enjoying some DRINK – as you can see he dressed exquisitely so he could be awarded more cake!
Here is David enjoying Dr Bones…I think they look like they’re at different parties. The Boy
thinks that Dr Bones is auditioning for a remake of ‘The Lair of the White Worm’
And here is The Boy with some cake.
A good time was had by all…I’d love to know what Leo was thinking. You can see what he’s been doing!
It’s The Boy’s birthday today!
We are both on holiday and determined to have a day full of fun and frolics – so we are going to go and see a film about Ian Curtis
I have been a good wife
and delivered breakfast in bed, fresh from Sandy’s
and didn’t say a word about the fact he was checking his work
email in bed!
