|Flowers were delivered throughout the day (on her official birthday)|
It was my gran's ninetieth birthday last week and we celebrated with a family tea party. She is still quite sprightly (although a bit deaf) and she baked all the cakes and cheesecakes for the do. Like the Queen she had her official birthday and then a second birthday (with a party) on the Sunday.
The big day had been in planning for weeks and gran's excitement has been building up too. I can't really explain in words how joyous her birthday was, she simply had a fabulous day and the whole family got involved. I think I might have got a bit too involved as I managed to hurt my big toe dismantling the gazebo! Note to self - do not dismantle a gazebo in open toe sandals while under the influence of lambrini wine (at 2 bottles for £5, I could not resist that bargain).
