Happy Birthday dad!
Once upon a time, a long time ago, ok 60 years, in a land far, far away, Yorkshire, a little boy was born. This little boy was called Keith and just over a quarter of a century later - he was to have his greatest achievement...me! So Happy Birthday dad!
As you can see from his picture he's very happy about getting old - still he's got another 40 years to go before he gets his card from the Queen!!! Ha ha!!!!
Nadia, in a moment of total madness, invited everyone over for lunch so somehow we squeezed six people into our house for lunch. Roast beef and Yorkshire of course + way too many desserts!! Including a very nice cake from the Cottage Bakery in Ampthill (below right) - which served about 16 people...we have none left!!!
Jemma and Mo came to the party and decided the smash my garden up. To date the damage I've found is:
- Nut feeder for the birds - bitten and smashed
- Fat ball feeder for the birds smashed
- Little bird table cracked
- Big birdtable (almost 6ft tall) pulled over and dragged across the garden
- Lawn dug up
- Solar powered light smashed
- Roses pruned
They had fun though!!! They also got to eat loads as my mum did her usual job of spoiling them - "I've got carrots for them" Nothing for Nadia and I - just pressies for the horses!!!
That's one of the old folks birthdays sorted just mum to go - so bring on Wednesday!!!!
