It was my mothers birthday two days ago. Happy Birthday Mum!!.
She turned 77 (shh don't tell anyone it's a secret). In our family the tradition is the birthday person gets to choose anything they want for their dinner. No surprise every year my mother chooses a roast dinner so we try to vary the type of meat to add a little variety. This year we had a delicious lamb roast mmh mmh!! I can still taste it.
As she is getting on a bit and has a balance problem we got her a folding walking stick to which she rolled her eyes, thanked us politely and said she will use it when she gets old.
I think we can consider ourselves told.
