Happy 90th Birthday, Mum!

1 Comment

mg_10i702Just imagine, 90 years! We had Mum’s party on Saturday so that Vanessa and Carm, Patrick and Cathy and the kiddies, and cousin Betty and her friend, Donna could all be here. Cousin Joan and Darrell weren’t able to be here after all since Darrell was sick but Joan phoned to talk to Mum.
The day was clear when I went to pick Mum up but by the time we got to our house, it was snowing heavily and continued… In spite of the storm, we had a good time with Mike’s delicious meal, cake courtesy of Elizabeth, champagne toasts and plenty of gifts to open.
Once Mum was safely back home, Betty and Donna headed back to Toronto… in the storm. Everyone else stayed over, so there was lots of time for visiting.
Today, Elizabeth and I went to see Mum for the actual day of her birthday. As Elizabeth said, Mum enjoyed holding court as people in the home dropped by with good wishes and others phoned.
It’s safe to say that Mum enjoyed her very special day.
