Default Happy 100th Birthday to My Mum

My Mum was born on December 9, 1917, so she would have been 100 on Saturday. We raised a few glasses to Mollie Alice on the day. She died in June 1993, on the same day as the comedian Les Dawson, whose mother-in-law jokes left her cold. I often imagine her giving Les a thick ear for trying to entertain her.

Love,

Caz

"My God, my mother-in-law can't half talk! Still, you'd expect to find a long tongue in an old boot."

This sounds like a good occasion to pass around some Angel Food Cake. It will make the birthday of Caroline's Mom even more special.

I'm still 8 years away from celebrating the 100th birthday of my deceased Dad. It's a date one never forgets. Have a perfect day, Caroline.

Cheers chaps!

Wow, that cake looks fabulous, Joe. It's ten past ten in the morning here. Too early to lick the screen?

Love,

Cazzie & Mummy

You didn't fake that diary, did you Robert?

I'd send a cake to you post haste if I was any good at baking them. I'm better at cooking sprouts if you'd like some. Luckily I'm excused them these days, as Mr Brown doesn't care for them any more than I do.

Love,

Caz
