Bubbly @ my Champagne Birthday Partay was pink Prosecco!



Scones, clotted cream, and jam


Fresh strawberries with the Prosecco



Traditional cake-stand full of tempting goodies.



View from the library where we had tea.




After tea, we had a rest from eating but there was a little more celebrating at home later in the evening.


The Son-in-law raises a toast to me again. He ran the London Royal Parks' half-marathon this afternoon in a very creditable time of 2 hours.


The following morning, the remains of the night before are still visible on the breakfast table.

Next weekend, I am off to visit an old school chum who is celebrating her 60th birthday . MWNN and Ron have been invited to the party


Thanks to jennylyle for the present from Oz that arrived on Saturday.

Yummy things!

Very.

The one photo that's missing is of 'The Family'. In it, I look distinctly crumpled, tired, slouchy, and overweight.

It's one to keep as a reminder of what all those goodies can do if eaten in excess.

You really can't beat a good afternoon tea - bugger ambrosia - afternoon tea is the true food of the gods!

Glad parcel arrived safely .. now part II, the painting & MWNN's pressie, went off today .. fingers crossed again for another successful landing. I hope you like the painting .. if not .. perhaps just stick it on the wall in the laundry .. out of sight!!!! We realised after we had wrapped it up that we forgot to put your card in but we didn't have any more brown paper left .. so no card from him however heartfelt birthday greetings nonetheless from LJC.

I fear your parcel will be caught up in the National Postal Strike. We've just had Round 1 with two days of walk-out last week. The coming week sees three more days.

He also forgot to put the string on the back of the picture .. sorry .. MWNN will have to employ his handyman skills to remedy this.

Do you have a tracking number for the parcel? We had a card from the Post Office this morning demanding customs' duty before they'll hand it over. I can't think of anyone else who has posted something to us from outside the UK.
