Happy Birthday Mother Cock

Mother Cock is my maternal grandmother and today she turns 90!
She is very much the matriarch of the family and is still perfectly able to give the best of us a clip round the ear if she thinks we deserve it (although her arms can't quite reach to Japan) and although she definitely rules to roost she also knows how to have a good time and parties on down with the best of them. This picture was taken at our medieval wedding party, she was, of course, the fairy godmother.
If you ask Mother Cock the secret of her long life she will tell you that is is down to good lovin' and a litre of medium sherry a day, drunk through a straw.....
Well Cocky*, I hope you have a good one and I am bummed that I will be missing your afternoon tea (AKA secret surprise birthday party with all and sundry attending)
Miss you loads xxxx

*although you might think it is rude to call your grandmother Cocky, secretly she loves it, plus is is a nickname from her surname so it isn't really that rude ;o)
