HAPPY 86TH BIRTHDAY TO MY DAD..& me too!! NOT that i am 86!!!

Hello ladies...

Just want to wish my gorgeous DAD a HAPPY 86th BIRTHDAY (15th October)...

after his knee operation...he is still coming good...His colour is much better and he is back swimming laps upon laps every morning..

I have cooked him a YUMMY boiled pineapple fruit cake...(shall wrap it nicely for him later after it has cooled)..

I usually buy him heaps of history books but he says he still has sooo many to read, that i shouldnt buy him any more...
AND he didnt want any licorice/chocolate...from DARREL LEA which i also normally give him....

OKAY....!! so i had a recent photograph of my TWO GONZOS!! (my sons)...taken at the singapore grand prix...FRAMED for him...

I think he will love that!!

so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DAD....(and me too!! i am 52 yo...same day)...GRRRR!!

will have to change my age profile on my blog...

ANYWAY..LOVE sharing my birthday with DAD!!

xx andrea

Hi Andrea


Goodness you're the same age as me now - CONGRATULATIONS!

I think your Dad will love the photo of his handsome Grandsons, it is so hard to know what to get them.

Have a great Birthday

Hi Andrea! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you (and your dad). Did you get spoilt rotten??? You're proud of your boys aren't you...I can tell, what a great photo of them.
I wish I was better at baking cakes, just a bit disheartened after all the failures :o( Your cake looks so tasty.

Hi Andrea,
Happy Birthday to your dad!
I had to giggle about your dad not wanting the usual gifts, my dad said the same about when he goes into hospital at the end of the month to have his back operation.
