I am not sure if I should tell my daughter, Miss Christine, that
she is becoming like her mother...
We were lucky enough to have her home for two weeks.
We celebrated my birthday a week early so that she could be
a part of the festivities.
She baked my favourite cake..one that rivals that of her great grandmother.
An angel food cake with pink strawberry cream icing. Yum!
It was made with love and frozen berries :)
Before she left, she gave me this card.
She knows me well, I could not have said it better...
except for the grey hairs which I should add are well hidden!
Happy Birthday Mom!
May your day be filled with cake, laughter, avoiding the bickering of middle-C and little-C,
blogging and everything else you may have wished for!
So sorry I can't be there on the actual day, I have an education to attend to,
however I hope your day is at least alright without me there :)
You deserve all your birthday wishes to come true
(even the one for an ipad you crazy woman)
and always remember that you don't look a day over 21-
despite the ever looming grey hairs (hehe)
PS...Photo of you and Dad on retirement, attempting to soak up
every ounce of the English lifestyle...might need to throw in a
mac laptop on the table alongside the wine!
We think a lot alike and even share
the same strange sense of humour..
She knows me well.
Like mother, like daughter.
Still a girl that likes to have fun...
I am sending Miss Christine an extra big hug. Little did we realise
when she flew off in to the big blue yonder back to New Zealand last
weekend that she was flying into the after effects of an earthquake. She has been
rumbling around Christchurch for the past 7 days, moving forward and
keeping it together.....just like her mother :)
How about you...are you like your mother?
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend to one and all.
I hope it is blissful!
