Nanna's trip on this earth still rolls on with Nanna still getting about well and with plenty to say for herself. She is an example to us all.
We had a small backyard lunch to celebrate her 89th birthday today. Jenny and Nanna wanted to keep it small so only Nanna's descendants plus spouses were invited. I guess I was there on an honorary basis. Von went back to NZ about a week ago and Jenny herself was out of action with a nasty cold. So it was a small gathering. Nanna however had 3 grandchildren present: Joe, Paul and Suzy. Great grandchildren were Matthew, Sahara and Dusty.
I had a present for Dusty -- a dustpan and brush. He showed such a liking for one at my place that it seemed an obvious gift.
The food was some good Chinese bought in from a nearby Chinese restaurant. Susan as usual provided a cake -- a very "naughty" cake with layers of cream etc. Nanna blew out the candles on it.
I talked mainly with Paul, mostly about the inimitable Mr. Rudd.
