Yes my cake was very impressive! At least the kids thought so, it had heaps more candles than the 2 or 4 they are used to seeing!
I was gifted with some beautiful handmade cards from my children and husband and some books and a voucher for a laptop or iPad (so i can test it when it comes to NZ!).
Mum and dad came for the day and it was wonderful to have them. A nice quiet, rainy birthday!.
