Certainly is Birthday season

Was one grandsons birthday on 15th and my nephews son was 4 yesterday - and my mum is 91 today - but best bit was another grandson made his entrance on Sunday night 2 weeks early - so keen to see us

Henry Ethan Jones born yesterday at 23.07πŸ‘ΆπŸ» weighing 8 pound 2 ounces
Mum and baby are both doing well - Dad is bit exhausted and overwhelmed. That 20 hours plus is so hard for the male isn't it ladies??

Birthday Season ????

Most of the family have summer birthdays,three in one week, so we dont dwell much on them.My Princess , however,totally pulled one over on Grandpa Freddie.The sunday before, I was just coming up to the 18th green oblivious as to the throng gathered behind the green.A playing partner said"someone having a birthday?".I looked over and in typical grateful fashion replied "oh shit".The little monkey had the upstairs room in the golf club decked with drinks and snacks etc and later a catered meal.Relations,ex co workers and friends were all in on it.She had done a lot of covert address stealing and had everyone keep the secret for a while( under punishment of death,we dont mess with Princess.
She went to a lot of time and effort to make it a special day and its rare for me to be stuck for words,having a black belt in repartee.CAKE was involved.
