Oh yes that day has finally arrived - the day life is supposed to begin! Wonder what I've been doing for the past 40 years then?
40 years ago - a little Vicki eventually was dragged kicking & screaming into the world. Delivered by Major something or other at the British Military Hospital in Berlin (Dad was in the RAF). The first child for 2 people who really didn't look old enough to be parents & fully admit to holding me in one arm & the baby book in the other!!
As its such an important birthday, celebrations have been strung out all weekend and some more are happening later today (more on that next time).
Saturday was party day and my family arrived to help me celebrate in style - proper party food & pass the parcel (complete with original vintage FisherPrice record player - well we always used this at parties when I was small). My parents bought me a proper cake - though we opted not to put 40 candles on there!!
I was thoroughly spoilt - lots of lovely pressies (which I was allowed to open :) ) - craft things, CK breakfast set, some things for my dolls house, lots of things with russian dolls on and some money :) My little niece who is 6 made me these flowers & decorated the jar vase too;
Sunday we went out for a roast dinner and afterwards we headed off for an ice-cream pudding in Southwold;
Off out to lunch again today - just me & MrVV this time. More pressies to open and the menfolk apparently have made me another cake!!
See you soon
