My 50th Birthday!

Sorry I've not posted before now, life has got in the way as it has a habit of doing.

Thank you for your kind birthday wishes! I had a wonderful birthday and lots of wonderful presents. My work collegues collected to buy me a kindle which I love. The Oh! Bearded One and our friends bought me a flying lesson and a photo makeover, so exciting! I had lots of other things too - well spoiled!

My birthday cake that DD made. The bottom layer was a chocolate sponge, the middle layer was jam sponge and the top layer was a fruit cake which I have eaten virtually by myself - lovely!

The Oh! Bearded  One and myself!

All 4 of us!

DD and myself.

My balloons, from DD. She organised the colour theme, the table decorations, balloons and lots of other things.

DD put up the decorations at home

On this photo you can just see a box by the chair. DD gave me the box, it contained 50 wrapped presents, they included things like socks, chocolate, hand cream, lip salve, tissues and a couple of little books.

Even Meg's crate had balloons on it!

A box full of 50 gifts. I did something similar for my DDs 21st. I just had no idea what else to do for her. LOL
Glad you had a good time.
