On Tuesday my Mum will be 80 and to celebrate we actually managed to get the entire immediate family together for lunch yesterday... all 14 of us! I had great plans to take loads of photos to mark the occasion but what with dishing up enough food to feed a small army and a glass or two of Prosecco too many, I forgot I was meant to be chief photographer! I did manage a few snaps only to inadvertantly delete them this morning. What a twit! However with the benefit of modern technology and the advice from some friends I have retrieved them...
As it is rare for me to get all four of my sons together at the same time I thought it would be good to get a shot of them that I might be able to print out and frame... but this was their idea of posing for a photo!
Of course there was cake... an apple and blackberry frozen yoghurt cake which was rock solid in the centre but starting to melt at the edges... but still tasted good!
And a chocolate fudge cake with champagne truffles. I decided to forego putting 80 candles on the cake and had sparklers instead but by the time I got the 0 lit the 8 had burned out so no photo of Mum with a sparkling cake!
But at least I got a picture of her with her grandsons when they finally stopped climbing on each other!
Happy birthday for tomorrow Mum. xxx
