Happy Birthday, Barbara

I have just popped in (masked and socially distanced, of course) to drop off a card from the church, along with some others people had given me, to our lovely Barbara Arnold, who is 100 today.  She was very much enjoying the day, and looking very glamorous. She had just had a surprise visit from children from Seal School who stood outside, at a safe distance, to sing Happy Birthday to her and give her the home made card they had made. I also got to see Barbara's birthday card from the Queen, so I feel very privileged!

Barbara has been a much valued part of the local community in Seal throughout her life, and a faithful member of the church, setting up for our midweek communion until just a few years ago and after she became unable to get to church, receiving communion at home. She maintains a lively interest in what is happening in the village, just as she has always done, and is one of our local treasures. Happy Birthday, Barbara.

And here is the birthday cake which Barbara made herself... complete with handmade icing roses. I am sure it will taste as good as it looks.
