It’s extraordinary – but I’ve just turned 70

I’ve been ‘off the air’ for a few days because I’ve been carousing on the Gold Coast with my family to celebrate my 70th birthday. I have been utterly spoiled.

Thank you to my two sons, two grandsons and especially my daughter-in-law who arranged everything from the booking of a beautiful penthouse – to the exceptionally fabulous cake!

Just to show you can have fun at any age – take two little boys to help you find the perfect pair of sunglasses!

    Happy birthday Jean, all the best people have birthdays in August, we just baked an enormous spongecake for our neighbour Glad who turned 91 on August 25th :). It looks like you had a fantastic time with your family and those glasses are dead sexy baby! 🙂
