A tale of two birthday cakes!
In case you wondered just where I was flying off to last week, I can now reveal all. It was to a surprise birthday party. My friend of many years, Joan, had no idea that a party was planned, and even less that I would be there. I almost didn’t make it because I forgot to take her daughter’s phone number with me. I couldn’t phone Joan, and spoil the surprise, and I had no idea how to find the house. Thoughts of wandering around the outskirts of Bristol, asking ‘does anyone know Belinda…?’ Fortunately resourcefulness won and I ended up in Bristol’s very beautiful Central Library, accessing the Internet. For once, technology was my friend.
After all that, some celebrating was called for, and celebrate we did. A party last Saturday evening, and a family affair on Monday, which was Joan’s actual birthday. Two cakes! I think you’ll agree, it was a Momentous occasion? And one I simply had to share with you, in just a few more than Six Words. Thank you Paula, and Debbie, for being such lovely hostesses and providing the stage, and thanks also to Joan and her family, for being the stars of the show. Happy Saturday, everyone!
