Fifty Three???

Okay... own up... who pressed the fast forward button? Despite my rapidly passing years I'm feeling much perkier today. Joe phoned from Dehli this morning and all is well with him. There were birthday flowers from my very clever Mum.

Birthday bubbles from my lovely boys.

And birthday cake from... well okay, I made my own cake!

Care to join me for a slice?
