Today is my mum’s 70th birthday!
Normally we don’t really do much, Mum tends to
ignore forget about birthdays but as it is her 70th, I wanted to do something special.
I went to The Royal Hotel a week or so ago and booked us a table and conspired with all the kids not to tell her – none of them did, not even Kyle!
This morning, everyone got up early……well, Alex got up and threw clothes on and was ready, but everyone else got up early.
I told Mum I was taking her for lunch for her birthday and to be ready about 11.45, I told her I had to pop out first but not to worry if I was running late.
I left home with the kids (and Isis who went to stay with Mel for the day) and took them down to the hotel so they could wait as a surprise.
I picked Mum up and we drove down – she spent the whole trip trying to guess where we were going.
She was very pleased to see the kids were there too and we had a fabulous lunch! She said she thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it and we had a lot of fun!
I spent the afternoon walking through Sandown with Isis and now I’m absolutely shattered!
