Earlier on in December, the boys and I journeyed west to celebrate Dad’s 90th birthday. I’d organised a tea party in a local hotel and invited his younger brother, my cousins and then all we had to do was turn up. I almost had a proper Mary Poppins moment with those balloons – it was blowing a gale when I collected them and with them all stuffed into a huge plastic bag, I really did almost take off! C, my daughter, had the dreaded lurgy and was really disappointed to miss the party.
The cake was baked in my old kitchen and iced as the kitchen was dismantled around me (to make way for the new kitchen, before Christmas). There were party bags and cakes galore, stories and memories to be treasured for ever. I’m going to make a photo book for Dad, as a reminder of his special day.
Here’s a sneaky peek at my new kitchen – grouting, cupboard door painting, pipes to be boxed in and a whole lot of sorting out and decorating still to do – ah well, got to keep busy!
