Half A Century And Not Out!

Due to a recent birthday, I am now entitled to life insurance without a medical, special deals with Saga, I have joints that are more accurate weather forecasters than the BBC and I would be likely to be released first in a hostage situation, so who said getting older was all doom and gloom!

Tom and Kate had a cake made for me to mark the occasion and it was a brilliant knitterly one!

I was still in bed when they gave it to me and that meant that that night before I could lie down, I had to pick lots of crumbs and bits of icing out of the bed! But it was worth it!!

I also want to say a huge thank you for your kind and thoughtful messages. For all I still feel I need solitude, it is so comforting to know there are friends there who understand and are prepared to listen when I'm ready to talk. It means a lot.

Oh, what an *amazing* cake! Truly brilliant!

I didn't realise it was a big birthday for you... now I'd better go and organise the surprise stripper ;)


P.S. Loving the new blog look :)

Happy belated birthday!!

The cake is absolutely AMAZING!! and I'm sure picking crumbs off the quilt wasn't that much of inconvenience!

Like the new blog too. Birthday treat to yourself perchance?!

What a totally groovy cake! My OH turned 50 last summer and you would have thought the world had come to an end! Maybe because he didn't get a cake like that?!
