Paul's '50th Birthday' get-together

The party weekend continues!

We popped round to Paul and Karen's just after 3pm where Karen had prepared lashings of great food including some very tasty meatballs - my favourite - and a rather potent sherry and brandy trifle - probably the best trifle I've tasted in years!

P1000770 I guess there must have been around 50 people there - a mix of us regulars :) - including Tom, Julie, David, Rosi, Stefan, Debbie, Bobby and Stella plus a lot of P and K's family.

P1000776 It was a great atmosphere and conversation, food and drink flowed smoothly and in large quantities!

Jeff, Paul's Dad made a touching speech after Paul had blown out P1000784 his candles that was really touching and Paul responded in kind.

Before we knew it, it was 8.30 and time for us to leave and get ready for work tomorrow.
It's been a great day and a pretty full-on weekend - drinking, eating, drinking, eating, drinking, eating, but one of those repetitive tasks that's always enjoyable! Happy Birthday Paul!!
