65!

I thought I had better quickly share a lovely evening we recently shared- my mother's 65th birthday. We all descended on her place with a 'pot luck dinner' (which was less pot luck and more a planned one!!!!), my sister taking care of the large cake. She decided a huge chocolate mud cake was in order and it needed to have 65 candles on it which made for a very entertaining time! It took quite some time to light them all but radiated plenty of heat while we sang Happy Birthday! Averils lung capacity was certainly up to it though- she managed to get them all out in not much more than one puff!!!








The heat of the candles even kindly shaved 5 years off!!!
