The fact that the Princess was turning 21 this month was a major factor in me deciding to cash in some of the Manservant’s frequent flyer miles and visit home for September.
Today is the Princess’s birthday – if I was back in DC I would dredge up some baby photos and post them to compare the baby to the adult. You will just have to take my word that she was a real cutie and after 2 boys it was nice to have a little human that I could dress up!
The people in her office made a big fuss of her:
When I was out looking for a card I found the perfect one – I’m sure I made a squeal of delight when I saw this one as I’ve been referring to her as the Princess from the beginning of those “delightful” teenage years:
She did not want a party (thank goodness!) – just a family dinner at an extremely popular Italian restaurant. From the left we have: Miss A (my daughter in law), my sons the Locksmith and the Economist, Emjay, absent behind the camera Manservant, the Princess and her boyfriend Nick.
The food was great – I had lamb cutlets – yeah, I know that doesn’t sound very Italian but when I see lamb on a menu that’s usually what I order because I have it so rarely. My two sons shared a half-metre pizza! (they have metre long pizzas too)
