Yes folks you've guessed it, yesterday I was.... (whispers) fifty!! It doesn't seem possible that I am that ancient, it only seems like the other day that I was out clubbing, backpacking and drinking for England. How can it be that I now enjoy gardening, kicking off my high heels and slobbing around in my slippers and look forward to an early night ? It can only be a matter of days before the dreaded post from Saga appears on the doormat and then I really will feel old. But one cannot dwell on the negatives of getting older and I am truly thankful that I have reached this age without any serious health issues and have had a loving family around me.
Anyway here are the photo's of my 50th Birthday Afternoon Tea (sounds very posh and refined eh ? .....not at all like me!).
Beautiful birthday cakes baked by my lovely auntie, Sam
with my oldest school friend Sue, we started school the same day aged 5.
Alas the chazza shop's were bereft of suitable frocks so I had to resort to the retail route.
my lovely family and friends
I did miss mum hugely and thought how much she would have enjoyed it but otherwise I could not have had a more perfect day, everything went according to plan and the weather was fantastic. Really a day to remember.
Thanks for looking and hope to catch up with you soon.
