The Week-end - Saturday

On Saturday Food-loving-Daughter and Son-in-law-who-cooks arrived and I was treated to a home-made (by Helen) birthday cake. Fortunately it didn’t have 60 candles on it – that might have tested my lung capacity!

We then went for a meal at the Kings Gap Court Hotel but Rich decided to give it a miss and stay at home to nurse his tooth abscess – ouch.

Brian and Moe – Jo’s brother and sister-in-law – met us at the hotel. During the pre-meal drinks various cameras were on display and I played with the panorama function on my new Sony.

Bryony taking photos – Mark’s job was simply to be photographed.

This was my melon and berry starter.

And my second ‘birthday cake’ – my profiterole dessert. Presumably because of the requirements of the Health and Safety Acts I was informed by the waiter that I shouldn’t eat the candle. Mind you – the fact that it was one of those re-lighting ones may have been the reason – ouch that could hurt!

We had coffee in the hotel library with the cameras once again in evidence.

Even when I went outside for a quick smoke the fun continued!

I liked these Ionic Capitals on the library woodwork. We did, however, have a debate as to what constitutes a library – there certainly weren’t many books.

We went back to The Willows for the evening and those staying there overnight were treated to a lovely buffet meal prepared by Jo. And another cake!
