31/365 Happy Birthday Rita - make a wish!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Mum/Grandma/Rita, Happy Birthday to you! What do you wish for at the age of 80? To have health and happiness and family around you I think, I didn't ask her! Rita, my wonderful Mother-in-law, is in pretty good health for her age and celebrated with her three sons and their families, and her sister, her niece and her niece's family. Her grand-daughter Cheryl is holding the cake which is '80' in chocolate sponge with butter-cream filling and frosting, and 8 candles. Cheryl baked it - it was delicious! Cheryl's dad Keith is standing behind her, having just said a few words (he's the eldest son), then in the background from right to left is Ian (middle son, whose home it is), my son Oliver, Rita's great nephew Ben & his Mum Diana (Rita's niece) and her husband Steve. You may have worked out by now that I am married to the youngest son, Mark! Happy Birthday Rita, and many happy returns.
