The HD3QEM tells me she was so proud of herself and of me when I (the first Stedman girl child for two generations) arrived 58 years ago. Hopefully she is still proud now!
This afternoon she took me out for a birthday cake - an Almond Bundt Cake - which was utterly delicious but will equal many kilometres on the treadmill!
And among the gifts there was a pair of Swarovski Crystal Earrings. Very nice. I think I will repeat this next year.
