Yesterday was Mum's 70th Birthday lunch which we hosted at a local cafe / restaurant. It went off really well and she enjoyed her day which was the most important thing. She hates being centre of attention but there were only the family and friends there that she wanted. Some of her cousins travelled 6 hours to be there, her sister had come from interstate ,and everyone else had travelled some distance to be there so think she felt very special! It was a shame my only sister and her family could not make it but as Mum is about to head to London to spend time with them soon I am sure they will do something special to celebrate then! My Aunty did flower arrangements for the tables, the food was wonderful and the cake YUMMY so all in all a great day.
