The last birthday celebration for my 75th birthday (how old?) has finally come to an end, with a family lunch on Saturday. Just a small get-together as sadly my son Michael was unable to attend. Unfortunately neither could my older sister Kathleen, who was not well, and my niece and her daughter her were to bring her down from Hawkes Bay. Never mind, it was great to have the others there for the day.
We were lunching at local café Murrayfield. Daughter Nicky, hubby Robert and grand-daughters Emma and Megan. Together with my younger sister Karla and her friend Murray.

What to order? After due consideration I decided on Prawn Curry, and Robin had Fish and Chips. There were a couple of Big Breakfasts delivered to the table, Eggs Benedict, and pancakes too.
Here we all are
The rain came pouring down so we had to wait for it to stop before we made our way outside to the cars. Everyone was invited back to our home for Birthday Cake and coffee. Oh yes, I just had to have a second decorated birthday cake.

It’s certainly been wonderful with multiple birthday celebrations, but it’s all over now. I blame my daughter Nicky – she is a great believer in having a month of birthday celebrations, rather than just celebrate on the actual day. Time to reflect how blessed I am with family and friends sharing in my special birthday, and finally time to rub the birthday message off the little black board. I’ve had a great time!
It’s all over now.
