Birthday Fun

I had a lovely birthday yesterday. But this photo was taken a year ago. My birthday is on the 30th of October and my eldest daughter's on the 1st of November. So we usually celebrate together. Our big joint celebration this year will be on the 8th of November and we'll add my daughter-in-law's birthday (on the 16th) to the celebration.

My parents came over from the mainland and spent a couple of nights with us. They took me out for lunch yesterday and we spent a very relaxed day together. For dinner my husband picked up Chinese food on the way home from work, and afterwards we went to our son and daughter-in-law's for tea and the cutest pumpkin cupcakes (and I forgot my camera).
