Happy Birthday - Dear Mum!

What a lovely day we had on Sunday! We had a family celecbration for Mum's 90th Birthday - it was so great to have everyone together (less one, unfortunately). All fourteen of us went to a local restaurant for a lovely lunch and it was great to be out on a beautiful, sunny, spring day.

Wow - ninety years old - only nine candles - imagine if there had been ninety - we would have had to call the fire brigade! The kids loved the mud cake - a bit yukky to cut and messy fingers and faces - all good fun!
Julia and Reno called in yesterday with these gorgeous orchids and card. I was quite amazed to see a 90th card - it was so nice to catch up and also very timely as some of the birthday flowers were dying off and I'd tossed them earlier in the day.

I think the cold weather has passed and I've been bitten by the spring-cleaning bug, so not much sewing getting done. Never mind - it will feel good when it is done and then I can sew for the rest of the year to make up for it.

'Bye for now!
