Birthday celebrations

We had a lovely birthday afternoon tea in our garden on Saturday, for our son and his wife who have birthdays within days of each other. Our youngest grandchild was welcomed by his cousins in the usual style, they all love to bring the youngest into their playtime.

I thought that ball was thirsty.....

And there's always a show off, isn't there :-)

Then it was time for the strawberry sponge birthday cake, well it had to be didn't it with our glut of them form the allotment.

As you can see we had a pretty good feast....

And someone certainly enjoyed these sausage rolls made by his aunty Pru.

As there was plenty of cake left we decided to take morning coffee on Sunday at the allotment before Dan and family left for home.

What a lovely weekend :-)

Breakfast at Dungeness

Yes we're here again, arrived last night around 10.30. We've never seen the power station from a distance at night, it looked amazing, like something out of Las Vagus. But also like a giant cathedral, I was almost waiting for 'the heavenly choir!'

We had a breakfast of our own strawberries and cereal....yum!

More veggie food parcels for the family.

And thinning and drying the peppermint for tea. 

And a helping hand for a grass snake stuck in garden netting, not in our plot.
