This Saturday is the first birthday celebration of three in a row in our family, just a week between each one.
Today it's mine.
Next Saturday is Cesar's birthday.
The Saturday after is Mateo's.
I made my cake at 9am this morning, before it got too hot to bear having the oven on.
A simple Victoria Sponge. With long candles, not lots - certainly not as many as there could have been!
It was very tasty.
And today, my mum called me on SKYPE to wish me Happy Birthday.
This is a first as up until now, she's been a determined technophobe. She also sent me an email yesterday.
And then my sister called me.
Which was lovely but not as much of a surprise as we chat for hours over the net. Thank goodness for the net!
And now it's back to the packing up before our next big move....more of which very soon. The screws, nuts and bolts that will put Romy and Ruy's beds back together again are missing. Not lost, just not found.
