To my surprise, the table was set in Downton Abbey style. I think the staff had the evening off though. So, Lady Shannon and Lord Brett had to serve. I tried not to frown on that action.
And I am not sure they had balloons back then.
Plus the entertainment may have been more late 1950s.
Cora postponed her bedtime to celebrate.
If I had known there was a Downton theme, I would have done something jolly with my hair.
Poor Cora, just as the photograph was being taken she heard her mother say, she couldn't have any cake. "WHAAAT", she exclaimed.
It was a grand birthday and there were even presents (although they are all under strict instructions not to get me anything). I will tell you about one particular present later.
Thank you ALL, Everything in the garden was rosy!
