Mum turns 97...... (non)party time ....

Mum was very clear in her instructions........ No Party for her Birthday.........
sooooo...... we had  spontaneous visiting instead.........and she loved it....

The first to arrive was her grandson with his little boy........
..................here's Little 'J' giving Great Nan her card.. after her has a chew on it............

then the rest of the family drifted in with food and cakes. We had a Sponge cake and a Pecan Danish ...Mum's 2 favourite cakes...... then my brother arrived with a Gelato cake....and later my grand daughter turned up with 2 Lemon Merengue pies she and her fiance made......

No photos... this wasn't a party.






My brother brought flowers.......




and so did my sister.......
........ the fragrance is beautiful....................



Here is Mum with 4 of her 5 children....... unfortunately, my sister Trish couldn't make it....

...Trish rang Mum ...and so did Mum's grand children.........happy phone calls all day.....



Mum had a lovely day............she said people 'just turning up' was better than an organised party..... less work for everyone........



We were all just happy to have Mum here for another birthday........
God Bless you Mum.......
