Just a few moments from my birthday celebrations.
Firstly there was CAKE! from Mum and Dad which was delicious. My brother has been buying Carolyn's cakes for over twenty years. At last she has her own shop in Leamington so everyone can buy her deliciously sweet and sticky masterpieces. The Cakery And what is more, they are very reasonably priced.
During the celebrations we went to Warwick Castle to see how our young Squire was doing.
I can't find the words to express just how emotional it was to see my boy having fun again, he loves this summer job and he was very upset to be leaving it so suddenly last year when he became very ill. Although he still has problems because of the surgery, mostly he is happy and healthy and we are all very, very grateful for that.
We had a meal at our favourite restaurant in London.
And best of all Son no.1 came back home at 3 a.m. on my birthday. The best birthday present a mother could have. Suffice it to say that to come back he would have had to leave, which he did, it was all very upsetting. But our boy is back, slightly damp, bedraggled and very upset, we are giving him lots of love and hugs and he seems very happy to be home and is becoming happier by the day.
A wonderful birthday with my family complete.
