She had a lovely day, with lots of lovely cards
including this beautifully hand-drawn one by her very talented bestest friend
a trip to the cinema to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - we all went together as a family, even the boys were impressed by her choice!
Then my bestest and her daughter, who is my daughter's bestest, came to visit in the evening, with a lovely posy of sweetly perfumed Sweet Peas
It is so lovely that our daughters get on so very well, my bestest and I met
We had a lovely Nandos-styled meal cooked by DH and cakes which my Darling Daughter made, but these didn't last long enough to be photographed - they were chocolate cupcakes, filled with chocolate ganache and iced with salted caramel frosting - oh my goodness they were delicious!!
She said she had a lovely day, which I am so pleased about as she is the most lovely, sweet, adorable daughter anyone could wish for. She is probably one of the most unselfish people I have ever met, she has a heart of pure gold. I am very blessed with my kids I have to say, I am so very thankful for them.
We now have a short birthday break, until it is eldest son's birthday on 31 August. Quite a lot of exciting things happening between then and now, more of which later.
But today, we are heading off to Manchester to see relatives and to enjoy a lovely Middle Eastern meal.
Have a lovely day, Helenxx
