Haha I thought so too at first, but I think there are exactly the amount of rings as correspond to the great rings of power: 3, 7, 9. ;))
Looks fantastic!

Oh my, of course, d'uh Jo, that would be it. :ymblushing: Good thinking, Valiant_Nymph!

Varna, did you have any special plans for today, or are you having a celebration on the weekend?

Thank you all for good wishes - and thank you for the beautiful cake, johobbit! :ymhug:

Valiant_Nymph, well spotted about the rings. B-) They are even grouped on the cake according to the numbers: 9 for the Men, 3 for the Elves, and 7 for the Dwarves.

I haven't planned anything special for this year, but I've had some phone calls and text messages today, and as it was a Friday I had the day off, so it's been a good day. :)

Next Wednesday there will be a small celebration in the lunchbreak at work, as today wasn't convenient. I guess there will be cake - but nothing as fancy as that Lothlórien-ish one. ;) No surprise party, the boss thought it would be more important to announce it and make sure people (staff of 7 or 8 people) would be able to attend.

Varnafinde, I think your boss had good thinking :) I don't care for surprise parties myself, because that means I never get any input on what we are doing :p

Sounds lovely, Varna! :) How was the celebration?

Wishing a marvelous birthday to our very own coracle! :ymparty: You're the Auntie of NarniaWeb and a very treasured member. Have such a lovely day, coracle!

And now, a coracle cake, just for you!

Happy Birthday, coracle! :)

johobbit, the belated birthday celebration at work was really nice. A very good lunch, and I was given a plant - would the term be a houseplant? I guess it may be a Dahlia of sorts, and I hope I can make it survive in my office the six weeks before the summer holidays (when it's likely to die for lack of water).

And glad to hear that you had a good birthday and belated celebration, Varna! The flower sounds pretty. :)

Thank you for the kind wishes. I had a day out in historic Chester, and it was lovely and sunny (probably in honour of the royal wedding).

Hmm, I can't fit the entire image on here, but I especially like the cupcake to the right that is cut off /:) that emphatically states "I ♥ Reading!" :D ... which suits to a 'T'!
