Birthday Hero


There’s a birthday in the house today.  Having spent the last few months building up to the big day (because, yes, it’s one of those which ends in “oh”), one by one, secrets are being revealed.




Not all secrets are out yet and some will remain hushhush until Sunday, when we’re having a tea party in his honour.  Till then, lips are sealed.




The morning brought a flurry of post and fond greetings from here and there, not to mention a little fallout of the nicest kind.




And then there are cakes.  Four of them to be precise.  Well, two “proper” cakes for tea parties and taking home and then two rather more impromptu, lemon drizzles, for the choir rehearsal this evening.

Will there be candles?  Possibly… ;-)

The first secret is revealed

It’s frothy, man
