Not a lot of gardening has been done this week as the big 60 loomed and was duly celebrated. I don't feel a day older than I did this time last week so I think age is really a state of mind.It was an evening of surprises as I thought we were just going for a quiet meal with the family members who could attend as it was mid week and they all had work commitments, but they all turned up apart from Linda who was sick and another daughter who is living abroad. Me blowing out the candles, thank God they had the sense not to put 60 candles on it or the fire brigade would have been gate crashing the party!
Immediate family who were there, 6 out of 8 was good
Extended family some in laws and soon to be inlaws
The big surprise was a stretch limo to take us to the restaurant! My first time being in one, and we had the champagne on hand to celebrate the occasion.
The limo group outside, someone said we were holding up traffic but I think a stretch limo is entitled to hold up traffic for a few minutes!They all went to an awfull lot of trouble to organize the night, the grandchildren had made cards and sent me garden related gifts, I had a memorable birthday and would like to thank them all for a wonderfull evening.
