Early on Saturday 13 February, 2016 I got a call from MIL.
"Happy Birthday Jo. Now please can you come collect your gift?"
I told her it didn't suit me to go out that time, and that I'd see her on Monday. But she said I had better fetch it else it would spoil.
Rina and I went to the home, and there on MIL's bed was a large arrangement of fruit. Pawpaws, apples and bananas balanced on her dustbin lid with grapes tied up with a scrap of netting (I suspect it was part of her laundry bag!)
Kind thought, though! The gift was for me and Grant's birthday tomorrow, 16 February.
Back home as I stopped the car, Abby and Joel came running up and wished me Happy Birthday. Amanda and Angus did the same. We all had a slice of Rina's delicious chocolate cake and tea.
As Angus and Amanda took their leave (next door) our brother-and-sister-in-law, Lourie and Celia pulled onto the driveway. Celia was carrying the biggest and most beautiful bunch of flowers.
The cats were most interested in the flowers on the table in our entertainment area
After a glass off ice cold passion fruit juice, Lourie and Celia took their leave.
Enter, my sweet friends, Carin and Carina.
With a beautiful silver bracelet!
My friends know I love my garden, (flowers), cats and BLING!
How blessed am I?
After church, Rina took me and Grant to the local restaurant for a pizza. We spent a lovely afternoon on the veranda, chatting to other patrons and generally have a good time!
So yes, even in your sixties, are you spoiled.
Thanks too, to all my blogger friends who wished me a happy birthday. I had one!
