Even though I said we abducted my mum from Florida to throw a party to celebrate her birthday, she actually had an additional agenda item. Oh, we HAD the party last night and she had a lovely time. She looked gorgeous! And, we ate a lot of food and drank a lot of booze (thanks Bill and Kevin) and she stayed up really late.
However... when she woke up this morning she reminded us all that her intended purpose was to go skating. She used to skate a lot when she was a kid and she adores skating. But, she hasn't skated in a long time and there are no rinks near her in Florida.
And when we got home Bill had made mum a superbly delicious prime rib sandwich (left over from last night's dinner party) that was so rare it was almost dripping blood. And she devoured it, the way an athlete would.
