“A Very Happy Un-birthday to you”


The rambling…

Brunch this morning with some of the Brazilian side of the family – my neice Eliana and the girls flew in from Switzerland last night and stayed at Mum and Dad’s before they go up to my other neice Susan’s today. So I got to catch up with them and meet Susan’s little boy Hugo for the first time – what a cutie!! (Don’t even mention that I am “Great Aunt Claire” 5 times over!!)

After school we had another attempt at celebrating Gx’s birthday. I had felt too poorly on Monday to be able to help make it special which was such a shame and we had promised a 2nd unofficial birthday to mak up for it. Some more cards (which had arrived late) some extra presents (alway popular)…

another meal at McD’s (you can’t have too many of these when you are 9) …

and then chocolate fudge cake as a birthday cake served hot with neapolitan ice cream. (We let the children have a birthday candle for each year of their age until they reach 10. Just as well as getting 9 candles to fit on is hard enough!!)

This version of his birthday got the thumbs up!
