My hubby has a special birthday today and has been celebrating since last Saturday!!

He always says it's his birthday week and so far, it is. Our special girls, Paula and Susanna together with their hubbies, Quentin and Micky, made a surprise party for him last Saturday. He had no idea which made it all the more exciting. Our Susi had come over from Beverley especially for it, bringing another of her masterpieces with her. Here is birthday boy with it.
As you can see, it's a birthday cake in the shape of a Fender Stratocaster.

Such detail too.

The only bits not edible were the strings, even the photo was edible.

A little sneaky bit on both our parts got this photo to her so that she could transfer it onto icing. It caused me to receive a shake of a finger from 'peg leg' plus an accusation and a few words that I can't possibly write on here!!! All good fun.
Susi also made some 'cake pops'.
There were monkey ones, Sesame Street ones and - I've just forgotten the others - senior moment!!
All in all, the day was fab, the food was fab, but most of all, the company was superb.
Thinking that was it - it really should have been given all the preparation - the next day brought a further visit from Susanna, Micky, Nat and Jen with all the balloons and banners from the party. They stuck them all around the house, both inside and out, plus all over my car!!!!

I took this picture on Sunday night, but the banners are there, just hiding behind the curtains - and yes girls, they are still up today.
Well birthday boy has opened all his cards and read some lovely birthday wishes on Facebook. I had hoped to get away for a couple of days, but the weather has put the outside work back and the lads are here again today, hopefully to finish off.
Not only is it a birthday celebration day, but it's our 22nd wedding anniversary as well. Perhaps we will get out later.
