Wendy's 85th birthday celebrations began today, with the Thursday morning pilates-scufflers team, and Ann who normally takes Wendy out on Tuesdays. Cake and singing by Jane, Jude, Dave, Greg, Derren and Bob.
Many years ago, Wendy was Frank Higgins private secretary up in Acre House, Lindley.
She was sat alone with coffee one morning and had the only available empty seats for us pilates. "Could we sit down?" I suspect it was Greg who then engaged her in idle chat and the rest is history.
The cake is just visible - amazingly creamy.
