So I’m now 50. The Big five oh. So far so good.
Our original thoughts were to have been having a nice holiday, Italy, Venice were mentioned but of course we couldn’t do that. However my epically wonderful hublet and most favouritest other person daughter R made it really special, as did everyone else who contributed cards, messages and gifts.
I have enough flowers to open my own floristry shop. Fortunately the last lot to be delivered came in their own vase, we’d run out by then.
Then there were chocolates, wine, prosecco,. Even biscuits from my favourite little mate who calls me “biscuit”. Book tokens, West End theatre evoucher, chocolate tasting experience, gift voucher for a cake class with my favourite cake teacher.
Beautiful earrings, necklaces, candles, books on things to do now I’m 50, and a mahoosive lunch/ afternoon tea that was too much food for one sitting. One necklace rom R was of all our birthstones, aquamarine (February), amethyst (March) and Ruby (July).
Balloons that were sneakily made up in the garage, and a chocolate cake to die for delivered having been approved of by R.
Lots of messages, lots of cards and a video chat with my big bruv in the morning and a lovely video chat with R later on in the day.
I feel thoroughly spoilt and am extremely grateful for everyone’s participation.
We’ll go travelling next year when there’s even more to celebrate, our 25th wedding anniversary and R’s 25th birthday.
Might need to take about 3 months off work for that. 😄

Lovely. You deserve such fabulous gifts. You’ll only be 50 once and gotta get yourself some memories 🤗
