Oh wow! She looks truly lovely and perhaps more importantly, very happy.

Happy, happy birthday to you.

PS: And I love the colour of her dress. Black was the colour of the day at our formal.

She's very lovely! My grand daughter wore black to her formal, her first strapless gown.

Helen said...

Custard tarts
Diamond rings.

EC, she did look fantastic but with her assets,she did need a bit more stucturing than she had. You can't see it in this photo but she said it was slit to the thigh on the right side and edged with diamante.

River, strapless gowns were unheard of in my day and I wore brown velvet and a soldier on each arm at my formal.

Helen, just as I opened this email I had a phone call from eldest granddaughter, double birthday surprise.

Andrew, that's true multicultural integration. It's what happens when you mix Sri Lankan, Dutch, Irish, Scots, German, French and English.

Kath, I went to your favourite place at Southland for a birthday treat, San Churro's and I thought of you with every mouthful. Every other place has their cakes behind glass that magnifies them but not there. I couldn't believe the size of the slab of cheesecake with berries and chocolate flakes on top of the coffee and Catanies staring at me. How could I not think of you.

Robbert, you forgot the third favourite, you know, grey hair/green eyes/touch over 6ft tall/weighed down by his wallet.
I love Geelong, great gallery and shops.

She's absolutely beautiful, JT.

Girls, start saving for the formal gown, you've only got 13 years before it's upon you.
