We'll gather Lilacs
Well I don’t have to tell you who this cake’s for………She’s 81 on Thursday, she’s living with me now because her Alzheimer’s means she needs extra help. Some days I think it’s me she driving me mad………but I wouldn’t change that for the world.
The cakes rich fruit, which is her favourite, and decorated with Lilacs (because Purple is her favourite colour), and the song “We’ll gather Lilacs” came to mind to me, which she likes. She also likes “Rockin all over the world” by Status Quo too……….!!!
There’s Roses and Hydrangea’s on the top too. She’s been watching me decorate it today, and must have asked me 100 times how I came to find I could do this. But when she told me she was so privileged to have a Daughter that was so talented I nearly burst with happiness. We all want our Parents to be proud of us, but I know in time she might not even know who I am, so hearing her say that today will stay in my heart for ever.
Happy Birthday Mum xxx
