It was Birthday Bear celebration time again this month. (Anyone not familiar with our Birthday Bear tradition read here:)
This time it was Helen's special big 70th. We celebrated at Chatswood Tavern, a small hotel where the service is good and the meals delicious.
|Chris, me, Mary, Helen, Birthday Bear, Paul, Bill, George, Bob and Ann|
When we arrived at the Tavern, Mary had already organised Birthday Bear. She was dressed as Birthday Girl to reflect Helen's special birthday. She had on her party dress and accessories including a brown wig. She had brought a birthday cake, card and a box of chocolates.
She even had on a new pair of shoes decorated with sparkles.
Mary created Birthday Bear this time. We take it in turns to dress Birthday Bear.
Helen cut the cake for us all to have a piece.
Happy Birthday Helen but I wish it could be happier.
