Post Celebrations And Love Bites

Thank-yous from both Richard and LeeLee to everyone who sent best wishes, and of course pressies (!), for their birthdays.

They had great fun.....

......eating smoked salmon for lunch, ......drinking her first LEGAL alcoholic drink (and it just had to be a Pina Colada?!), ......and a delicious meal out in the evening, ......and the birthday cake when we got back. Since I was driving, we enjoyed pink champagne as well when we got home. You did not think I would let them get away with me not drinking on their birthdays, did you!

By the way, it was a rosé Mercier champagne - and very good it was. Fruity and full bodied. Better than the last time we tasted it a couple of years ago!

Today my chest area is covered with what look remarkably like love bites. And before you start imagining wild orgies in the depths of Herault (and get your hopes up!)......

........Richard was right. It is far easier for the Heart Specialist to run all his tests when you do not have chest hair!

Although Dr Labadie did say that 'boobs' cause him just as many problems, from an ECG point of view of course.

For the next 24 hours I am strapped up with a monitoring device that sounds like an aircraft revving up every 15 minutes. You should have seen the looks I got at the supermarket!

Am I the luckiest Mum in the world?! I got to see my Mother's Day pressie a few days early! I now have a water feature that I can sit next to whilst reading on the terrace. Thank-you girls!

And Richard of course, because I hope to God he did not let Nic or LeeLee wire up the fountain?!
