Today was Karloff Jr.'s birthday.
He wasn't smothered in gifts, but he was hella satisfied and reminded us so throughout the day. He and I baked a chocolate cake together later on. As it cooled, Karloff, Opopanax and I made the specified birthday dinner. Which was grilled cheese and little pizzas. All through supper, Mini Karloff would give me long meaningful smiles, so pleased with the day and the care we took in making sure it was special. He is a sweet old soul.
Just before bed he asks, "You think after lunch tomorrow I could have another piece of this cake Mum?"
Days like today when we are all together, with life and love filling this big house, I am sweetly surrounded.
And I am lucky, lucky girl :)
