Here she is.
Her actor boyfriend came up from London for a couple of days. Please excuse the rather messy kitchen - I came home from work and had time to ice the cake and make the meal but not tidy up to photographic standards. Mind you, what would a kitchen be without a big pile of exam scripts in the background?
Mr Life, SIL and Daughter 1. Our son, alas, was not with us.
She blows out the candles.
Oh dear, more chaos. We did tidy up afterwards. Here's my mum.
I am SO exhausted. Life has been more than usually frantic recently for reasons connected with my poor confused aunt and the Marking.
Scripts have to be finished on Wednesday. Then life will begin again, I hope. And blog-reading.
