Jim, my step father, was 84 yesterday so we all piled down to Yialos beach taverna for an afternoon of festivities and good food. It was great fun! The food was great, as always and the company, first class. We even got my Mum to dress up and come out with her zimmer frame! That was a result.
I bought Jim a huge birthday balloon, supersized birthday boy badge , which he wore proudly and sparkly birthday boy hat – which he also wore.
The birthday cake duly arrived and we all sang happy birthday -including Jim, who touched my arm and asked me very quietly, “Whose birthday is it today then?”…
84 and not out!
But “not in” either!
what a shame – he is such a lovely man. At least he had fun!
