Artist Lys Hansen had a suprise birthday party thrown for her today by her two sons, Marcus and Giles.
Now the idea of a surprise party would fill me with horror but Lys revelled in it.
She only knew about it an hour before guests arrived.
It was very much a famiy affair so we felt honoured to be included.
