30th April, 2016

It is Dec's 20th birthday today. 

Happy Birthday, Dec. 

This photo was taken in early July, 2014 in Yokohama, Japan. 

Dec now lives and studies at Lancaster University in the U.K. 

Chikako bought some beautiful roses. 
And cooked some delicious treats to eat. 

Preparing Dec's favourite .... Margherita Pizza. 
Oh, we also cracked open a bottle of bubbly for the occasion. 

Then we had some sashimi. 

And of course there was a cake to eat ! 

Happy Birthday my wonderful son. 
May Life itself treat you kindly.
