82, not out!

Not content with enjoying ourselves at Ian’s 70th birthday celebration yesterday, today, we laid on a birthday lunch for Lee’s 82nd!

Pick up from Yeoman’s Court was just after 11am (carefully avoiding the planned Armistice celebrations in Burton Latimer) and then we headed back to ours for the birthday lunch. But, before lunch, there was the more vital activity of the present-opening ceremony!

Lunch then followed featuring all Lee’s faves – Roast Chicken, Roast Potatoes, Green Beans, Stuffing followed by Profiteroles!

A great day for Lee then, especially after her recent (and frequent) trips to KGH. We dropped her home (this time REALLY avoiding the Armistice event that I learned was in the afternoon in BL) at just after 3 and then we went onto Sean’s for our final visit this year to get his garden ready for Winter.

Back home by just after 4, we rewarded ourselves with a cuppa and a cheeky mince pie before settling down for the rest of the evening watching TV – the Strictly results and then Blue Planet II.
