On Tuesday 25 February the Cowbridge Stitch & Bitcher’s met to celebrate Monica’s birthday – and what a celebration – with bubbly, lunch and plenty of fun and games!
The afternoon started with a celebratory drink ……
followed by more presents!
A wonderful photo album capturing not only Monica’s past but also many of her current activities and bright ideas!
And how thoughtful – the gift bag matches the outfit!
Lunch was wonderful – Iechyd Da!
Having filled their tums it was time to play some games. First off – charades – is Deedi counting the years past on her fingers or is this a clue to the number of words in the film?
A Stitch ‘n Bitch event couldn’t pass without a touch of recycling – Jackie had decorated a washing powder tub so that she could keep the charade papers in it. And, how delightful that Anita (now residing in Oz) was pictured on the front of the tub – she will be thrilled!
After a strenuous charades session it was time for a bit of exercise – and to remind everyone of the recent Winter Olympics a game of curling was in order!
Monica seemed more interested in using the brush to put the others off!
Whilst everyone enjoyed the game there was a general consensus that no-one would get called up to compete in a future Olympic team.
The final game was one of guessing who the babies and children were in photographs – not easy but great fun! Did Caroline win? If so it could be because she might have been cheating? – looking at the back of the photo to see if there was a name that would give a clue!
And, to round off the afternoon – there was a cake made by Jess – who is so talented at making yummy things to add that little extra round the waist!
In true Stitch ‘n Bitch fashion it was decorated with coloured chocolate buttons, a marzipan tape measure and marzipan cotton bobbins – not forgetting the Scottie Dogs (Monica;s favourites) around the side of the cake!
What a truly memorable birthday treat – shared with the very best of friends!
I wonder who’s *Oth it is next?
