Birthday celebrations

Yesterday we went to the 80th birthday party of a great friend and previous neighbour. We lived next door to the Buller family for 8 years in Eltham....when I went into labour with our first son and I couldn't get hold of David, Giselle drove me to the hospital!! She is a fun loving, generous person and it was evident from the comments made at her party that she has made and kept many friends over the years she has been in Australia. I think that says it all.

the beautiful cake her grand daughter made...the flowers are all handmade as are the choc covered fruit

the extended family...mum,daughter,two sons, grand daughter, two grandsons, partners, grand children and one great grand child.
Happy birthday Giselle.

I recognise this lovely lady. Now I'll be thinking all day about how I know her face. We live in adjoining suburbs but I think it is more than this. Looks like a fabulous birthday party.
