To another wonderful UK friend - Carla.
We have known each other for around 30 years, from when we used to work together at the Metropole Hotel, on Edgeware Road in London.
Carla's going through a tough time at the moment so I hope today's birthday is even more special, and that hubby, Nick, and the kids treat you like the queen your middle name suggests.
Happy Birthday my dear and wonderful friend
And here are a couple of pics of Carla from our heyday
