My Gran's 101st birthday celebrations lasted all day Saturday and for most of the day Sunday, with people drifting in and out the whole two days - it grew organically. Her actual birthday was Friday but it has become a bit of a family tradition to try to get together on or around her birthday, with visits from family members continuing throughout June and July. (Unfortunately there are only so many people we can put up in one go. Last year for her 100th we booked all the B&Bs within a 10 mile radius).
It was drizzling all day Saturday for the 'main' event, but that didn't stop us (or her) sitting outside al fresco. It was very special.
