It's been a busy weekend, good fun, but busy and today I have the start of a cold. Stuffy head, runny nose, gritty eyes, sore throat, all the signs are there.
But I need to blog about the weekend, so it's a quick post and then I'll have to leave catching up with you all until another day.
Saturday G, S and I went to the local park for the annual Nature's Harvest event. We called for S's friend L on the way and spent a really nice couple of hours outdoors in the autumn sunshine.
We watched the ferret racing. There were four ferrets in each race. The girls both chose Blondie, yes she is named after Debbie Harry, although she isn't the one below, he was called Jamie, and they doubled their 20p stake to 40p when she did in fact win the race!
As well as the ferrets there were farm animals to pet and a family who had bought along their collection of birds of prey. The owl fancied a bit of exercise and perched up in a tree for a while.
Sunday was an early start with much tidying and food preparation to do.
A few weeks back T asked if he could arrange a birthday party for G.
Initially he wanted it to be a big surprise affair, but G really dislikes anything like that so after a bit of a chat T was happy just to go for something low key and let his Dad in on the idea.
With G's brother and sister not able to make this weekend and various friends having work commitments there ended up just being a handful of us, but that didn't matter. A jolly afternoon was had by us all, as well as a goodly slice of the chocolate birthday cake made by G's mum!
Followed by lots of presents today (his actual birthday) and a take away tonight, I think that should round of his birthday celebrations for this year quite nicely.
