On staff birthdays at our hostel in Toronto we usually have some food, drinks, a cake etc., with just staff and close friends to help celebrate the occasion.
It is a little different when Teresa – our head of housekeeping and resident superwoman – has a birthday.
(Why not? After all, she does all the work at the hostel!)
And Teresa puts on a real feast! This year we had her famous lasagna, roast beef, BBQ chicken, fish, roast potatoes and fried rice and salad.
We all have birthday’s once a year; but Teresa’s is the most popular occasion. Go figure?
