Birthday girl……Well, Woman really or maybe golden Oldie 🙂
Just loved my birthday. I was woken by an early morning phone call. My nearly 4 year old granddaughter sang “Happy Birthday” all the way way through….. with a ‘hiphip hooray!” Just warmed my heart. That was a fantastic start to my birthday.
In the background I could hear my 2 year old grandson saying “Chocolate Cake”. Maybe not a song but it was very much a birthday sentiment. (In the evening, we went to a restaurant and he got his wish – my birthday cake was a chocolate one and he enjoyed it.
Last year my daughter decided that we should start a family birthday tradition by wearing a ‘Birthday Hat’!! And what a hat it is…. !!! So we are all having to wear it when it’s our birthdays. I wore it to the restaurant and got many people wish me a happy birthday (Smiling and I am sure they were thinking – I wouldn’t wear that hat).
So back to after the early phone call. I went to craft and everyone greeted me a ‘happy birthday’. I was mystified how they knew! I was busy teaching my class, when my friend Julie tapped my on the shoulder. In her hands she had a delicious cheese cake (from the cheese cake shop). Yummy (Drat, I had started my diet two days before. Oh well, it was my birthday – did you know it was my birthday? 🙂 What a wonderful surprise! What a wonderful friend.
Grandsons who live in Sydney rang. My eldest grandson, was also celebrating his birthday. What a great Daughter-in-law I have to give me a beautiful gift on my birthday six years ago. He said that the dino card I made for him was the best card he ever had!
The day ended with an evening meal. Thank goodness my daughter didn’t put all the candles on the cake – we would have taken all night to blow them out….
A great day….. now promise not to laugh…. here’s the hat.
