51 Today

51 Today! 51 Today!

I'm more than one.

I'm more than two.

I'm MUCH more than three.

51 Today!



Those hands are only 49. It's not that my 51 year old hands are any more unsightly, It's just that a cake photo was needed.





I know. I know. It'll slide off the plate like that but I have to do The Big Drive today for 'real' work, ('real' work being work that is not designing tea cosies work) and I don't have time for mucking about with recalcitrant photos.

Hi ho hi ho.....

Happy birthday Loani! Good grief, I haven't had breakfast yet and I'm drooling over the strawberry cake.... well when you're 51 or for me, gulp, a large tad over 51, you can eat what you like for breakfast.

Right now, here you still are 50! Happy Birthday! That cake looks yummy! Tomorrow I'll buy some strawberries and make a cake. I'll be thinking of you while eating it. :o)

Happy Birthday, dear Loani! I'm guessing the cake will be eaten faster than it can slide off the plate anyway.

Hip hip hooray! 3 cheers! Love the cake perspective...perhaps a subliminal assessment on confirming your entrance plus 1 into such an entertaining decade in which life becomes an ocean of new possibilities when you're no longer trapped into the decades of 'becoming'...you've arrived with gusto and verve!

Sorry, I know Luvvie has already done it, but it's a family tradition for us to sing.

[OK, girls, altogether now:]

Happy Birthday to you!

Hip hip hooray!

For she’s a jolly good chicken

Hope you ate the whole cake before work for breakfast

Delicious looking cake. I love it when cakes are combined with fresh fruit, that's becoming very popular at weddings now btw.
