Mine and My Boy's Birthdays

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.
Cheers Nan!
The restaurant was once a mill.

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
Happy Birthday
Just one more birthday to go.

~ Lovely pictures of very special birthdays! LOVE the cake for your boy, Pj! WOW! I had a chuckle at the card too, as I relieved this, for my birthday in April!! It is because we are 'cat lovers' my friend! and not the shock of our ages!! hehe...Hugs Maria x

Hi Maria, it's lovely to hear from you as always. I had to laugh at the card too - I probably deserved it, as I am always telling my BF that she is older than me - by a month! :) Best wishes, Pj x
