Auntie, whose birthday is today, held a lovely tea party yesterday in the late afternoon into the evening. Great fun was had by all, and I look forward to our family events getting back on track now that all of our other family stuff has been somewhat put to rest!
So, Auntie (and anyone else who may be celebrating today), Happy Birthday!!! For you, I wish only for deep happiness and love, the best day ever (so far for you, of course) and the most gorgeous weather you can imagine on your birthday.
