When Keiko-san & her family arrived at dinner time, she had korokke as well as the birthday cake & treats. Nine people really filled Nobuko-san’s dining room & we ate buffet-style.

We gave Nobuko-san her gifts after dinner & then sang Happy Birthday & had cake. The boys sort of evapourated afterwards & we adults sat around & chatted about this & that. It was very relaxing & fun to be able to participate in the conversation.
