Birthdays and friends
It was actually my brother's birthday yesterday, but I had to raise my glass in an 'absent friends' toast as he's on the other side of the world. ( did you get the pressie, joff?)
This dinner was our weekly winter 'soup and sandwiches' night that we've been doing with Nick and Sara for 5 years. But tonight a few others were there too, Simon and Alison and Chelsea and Dustin, and it was Simon's birthday so Lloyd made Scotch Broth and steak sandwiches and I made a cupcake birthday cake.
We had to take the big outside table in as we wouldn't have fitted round our small one!
