A party

I have just had a party for my birthday which isn't until the 20th, but this date fitted in with members of my family. We had a lovely time, all 20 of us. Some of my friends came that I have known for years, well I would have known them for years as I am old?! I don't feel my age and still do everything I could do when younger, except now I take longer to get it done!
I made the cake myself; it is my Christmas cake recipe and is delicious. Mr Waitrose provided the party food and that was delicious too.

My friend gave me a lovely orchid and my daughter a pale pink camellia and I have lots of other presents to open when it is my proper birthday.. like the Queen I am having two birthdays!LOL

Congratulations, Chris! Nice to hear you had a wonderful party and at this time of year, especially, it's fun to celebrate more than once! My sister always used to complain that all she ever had for her birthday dinner was turkey casserole (Dec. 29th) and leftover Xmas cake! Oh well...take the whole month to celebrate and start off the new year well. Hi to Mike and Nell!

Happy Almost-Birthday! :)
Mine is the 21st - but the world is scheduled to end that day so I'm dubious whether I'll get to have cake. Lol
