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
