Last Friday was my 70th birthday!I can't believe it.In my head I am still 50 or less.Our daughter took us out to lunch on Friday and the the whole family met up on Saturday morning at the Littleton Arms in Penkridge near Stafford.Matt coming from Cambridge ,Sarah from Cheshire,us from North Wales.We had a light lunch and then a walk on Cannock Chase.
Then it was time for dinner.This is my birthday cake with yarn and needles made of icing.
This is one of the presents from the children.I have long admired Cathy Daniels ceramics(Potter Jotter formerly) and my daughter commissioned her to do this p[ece for my birthday.Sorry it is on its side but I can't move it.I hope you can see it features knitting,gardening,reading and my grandchildren.My main interests.The children also bought me a new camera so expect some better photos!C bought me a new,small laptop to replace my anci.ent netbook.
Here they are my 5 grandchildren.
We are off to Paris tomorrow for three days.I have been spoiled rotten and really do appreciate it especially all eleven of us being together for the weekend.70 years ago there was just me and now look at me.I am so lucky.
