Last week it was mine and my Son's birthdays - the Geminis of the family.
I had some lovely cards.
My love of cats is well known; although I am going to have to have a word with my BF over that middle card! :)
My Mum baked a birthday cake for me
and my Husband surprised me with a bunch of roses.
This iPad case was from Jay.
Next it was a special birthday for Jay. I baked three fruitcakes - his favourite.
I also baked some lemon cupcakes and deorated them with pirates and skull and crossbones,
because you are never too old for that sort of thing! :)
Balloons were blown up in readiness.
On the day Jay had his final A-level exam so there was no time for the opening of cards in the morning.
After lunch he opened his cards
and presents, larking around as usual! :)
My parents came to stay for a few days and we had a celebratory meal of Beef Wellington and birthday cake,
with Procecco as a nod to Jay's upcoming birthday treat - a week in Venice.
The candles were lit
and blown out.
At the weekend Fay came home and we went out to lunch with both sets of Grandparents.
The first legal pint - local scrumpy.
My Mum and Dad
and later caught holding hands under the table - still romantic.
Father and Son.
Lovely views of the mill pond from inside the resaurant.
Me and my babies - 21 :: !! :: 18
Just one more birthday to go.
