My Mum is 90 today and we celebrated with a small family gathering to share a cuppa tea and birthday cake. Eventhough she is not aware that it is her birthday, nor the significant milestone of being 90 years old, she did sense that something special was happening and that she was the centre of our attention.

She gave us lots of smiles for the photos, and I like this one of her with her family – although there are a few missing as they are living overseas or couldn’t be in Christchurch today.
