It is my birthday today, but who's counting! I am, backwards :)
My husbands family plus a few close friends including eldest son and his wife and me of course are going to a Chinese restaurant in the city for dinner this evening. Last year was the first time I have ever been out to dinner for my birthday.
My father used speed dial to phone me this morning and began singing Happy Birthday from start to finish :) not bad for an 89 year old, and he didn't miss a beat. When I was there this past week, he asked me how much money I wanted for my birthday, he always says that :)
Youngest son also phoned this morning from Queensland, it was good he remembered. I was lucky enough to have his little children (the girls 6 & 5 years of age, the youngest is 16 months and a boy) wish their Nan birthday greeting and have a chat along with his wife. Eldest son also phoned this morning, his daughter is nearly 14 months old.
Also today I took a few photos of my Zygocactus or Christmas cactus. These plants came from dad's house and it's their second year. I took cuttings a few years after mum passed away and very happy with the results.
