Happy Birthday Dona Maria
From your family and friends in England
Have a lovely time at your very special party .
On Sunday last, Joe waved Rosalba and her bulging bag of gifts off on their journey back to Teresina, the capital city of the northern state of Piau and sometime home to Rosalba, Joe and their two boys in the early years of their marriage.
Ariving home a few days in advance of her mum’s 80th birthday party this weekend gives Rosalba time to help the family with organising and putting the finishing touches to the celebration to which almost 300 quests are expected. I hear that Rosalba is to be the Mistress of ceremonies; so things are in good hand.
Having had a small taste of partying in Brazil, one can only wonder and try to imagine, the colour, music, excitement and happiness that is to come and be a little envious.
