At Seventeen


With all the excitement and travels back and forth we celebrated
Miss Claire's 17th Birthday. 

She managed to celebrate it in both New Zealand and England.
Lucky girl!

A night out in Auckland...

and at home in England with
a cake made with love
by her Father...

Surprises all around.

Ah to be seventeen again. 
Do you remember?


A favourite at seventeen for me....Janis Ian

  13. Good for Claire.
    Sixteen was big for our girls. Our eldest spent it in Tokyo. Entertained at our favourite restaurant. La Patata. The strew rose petals from the door of the restaurant to our table. What I wouldn't have given to be her!
    Seventeen for me...the year my dad died.

    Fondly,

  16. Hats off to your DH Jeanne - what a man! MOTH absolutely refuses to make icing of any sort. But then again MOTH refuses to make cake of any sort too!!!
