It’s a Party

It’s a Party

Happy Sunday!
Thanks for popping in today.
I am off to Rochester shortly, 
to celebrate my birthday with Mum, Dad, Steve and Dave.
It’s a Party!!!!
57 years ago today, in a little village called Sande, 
in the very north of Germany, 
my Mum was probably feeling worn out and anxious while
my Dad was racing around on a pushbike to get the Midwife.
So I feel the very least I can do is take them out for a lovely lunch on my birthday, don’t you ?!?!?
I’ve got a quick step by step which I prepared for the Baby Shows last weekend on TV, but never got to it, because we sold out so rapidly!
It looks a little Rochester, a little cobble streets, a little Topes…
Can you do me a big favour? 
I really have to go because I hate to be late.
Could you just do the instructions in your head?
It’s very very easy.
Just say them out loud as you go through the pics. 
Try and figure out which plates I used too…

See how fast that is??!!
Must Dash, said the Mexican.
Moscow, said the Russian…
That’s up there!!!!
love & hugs,

  19. I know, I'm late, but Barbara I hope you've had a spiffing birthday!!! You're just a spring chicken, age is just a number – at least that's what I keep telling myself. I go backwards now, but that's no good for you because you'd be 75 ha ha.
