But that didn't stop my buddies in Nairobi celebrating anyway.
Susanna & the boys were already back in Kenya.
So my darling wife knocked up a cake for all the 'lads'.
And they happily cracked on with celebrating in my absence.
Although someone drastically underestimated the candles!
Here's Edward (his hand anyway) feeding Gerro a super slice.
While Levi looks like he already has a face full.
And our Senior Accountant George stands grinning behind them.
No doubt anticipating his turn.
Needless to say, not one crumb was left by the time I returned!
