Life Begins...


My girls very kindly bought me this:

Inside I found a very appropriate quote:  Birthdays are nature's way of getting you to eat more cake.

I took this to heart.

One of these for breakfast (always birthday breakfast food in this house!)

Then we went to the lovely local town of Woodhall Spa; home of the Dam Busters squadron - and a fantastic patisserie:

Sadly; about 5 minutes after buying some very pretty cupcakes, my now 40-year old brain decided it would be a good idea to buy a bag of wild bird seed and put it in the bag on top of the cupcakes.  Oh dear:

But they tasted good anyway!

Then, of course, we had to have some more cake with dinner:

Now a diet is called for!
