Anniversary

It was a really lovely lunch and, in response to a request, I took photos of the cake. Lilian and Jo, who are sisters, made and decorated the cake which was both beautiful and delicious. The flowers are made of sugar - isn't it impressive?


I had the job of giving a name badge to the 9 former members, some of whom I hadn't seen for 10 or 15 years, and I'm happy to say that i recognised every one of them, which says as much for their youthfully unchanging appearance as it does for my memory. I was particularly happy to see Florence looking so well; she left us on the grounds of increasing age several years ago, and is now 97 and still pretty and cheerful and walking on her own two feet. She recognised me too and we had a lovely chat. I had my picture taken helping to cut the cake, as I'm secretary, but I doubt you'll ever get a look of that. However, I will put up another picture of us Sage family girls - taken at z's 6-week celebration (as you saw last week; I've only just got around to uploading it).

That is a most incredibly adorable baby. And the Moms are quite lovely too.

And the cake is amazing.

Dear z, you've done us proud! What a lovely cake. The second picture slightly steals its thunder though. That's going to be an heirloom for sure.

I mean the third, of course.

And dave, I think there are only 55 people, actually, 40% of whom are z.

Those flowers are astonishing. I had to read it twice to confirm that no, they weren't real.

That last picture? Dandelion is absolutely right: it will be an heirloom, for sure.

I know there are other things to praise here, but I'll stick to what I know. You look fantastic.

Astute words from the badgerdaddy and congrats all round!

Aw, you're all so lovely.

Dave, is it all sparkly? I'm sure it will be better in a day or two and I certainly hope so.
