Half A Century


On Wednesday my lovely mum turned the grand old age of 50, and to say she wasn't looking forward to it is an understatement.  She was adamant that she didn't want any fuss, party or anything that reminded her that she had been on this planet for half a century.  So on Tuesday night she was quite miserable that my dad hadn't got the day off work and nothing had been planned, little did she know we had spent the past week planning surprises for her.  The first surprise came in the morning when my dad gave her presents and told her that he did in fact have the day off work, to which she sobbed because she was so pleased.  She then had to go to work for a few hours in the morning, so my dad arranged to have the biggest bouquet of flowers I have ever seen delivered to her at work.  My mum was so surprised as the last bunch of flowers my dad bought her were when I was born 24 years ago, and is always teasing her that the next bunch of flowers he buys her will be when she's pushing up the daisies!  

I then spent the morning getting ready, which takes about 5 times longer than usual with Riley running off with my brushes and anything else I'm trying to use.  But eventually I managed to get ready by the time my mum got home so we could take her for a surprise lunch at one of her favourite resaurants.  There were more tears  when we got there and she saw the balloons on the table.  Then the day was topped off with friends and family we had secretly invited for cake and champagne.

 My mum's special birthday pudding

The lovely cake my Nan had made for her.  It's delicious and there's still over half left, if it doesn't get eaten soon I may be a stone heavier by next week!!
