Birthday cake

On the 5th of January 2014 I turned 40. I have never until now had 4 types of cake for a birthday but it seemed to make sense when I planned my office and my outside office celebrations… In fact, if I was to be fastidious, I should really say that I had six as … Continue reading Birthday cake
