Before that though, Karl came around to our place to get us to sign the birthday card. He was to write a message first...he said he had to write something that was a little different and clever. He sat at our outdoor table and pondered on and planned this message. He got an idea and started writing on some scrap paper and eventually he had his message ready to transcribe on to the card...
'When you whisk upon a star
Makes no difference who you are,
Anything your tummy desires
Will come to you.
If your Kitchen Aid is in your dreams
No request is too extreme
When you whisk upon a star
As bakers do'...(with apologies to the writer of When you Wish Upon a Star')
And of course the Birthday Girl loved her gift and has promised lots of yummy dishes for us to enjoy when we visit the young couple.
( unfortunately I missed out on this birthday dinner as I was having a 'sleep over' in the Sleep Study Centre at Greenslopes Hospital)
