Gambles Reunited for Ann’s Birthday Celebrations

Birthday Girl!
Well, I think that’s a first (not sure why though!) - the Gambles family reunited here for Ann’s Birthday!!
Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

Denis, Roger, Jane, Oliver and Bev batting for the Gambles, whilst Lee and I were in the other corner!


A little like that odd tradition where the person whose birthday it is, provides cakes, Ann provided - and cooked - the menu!

Moroccan Lamb…

…or Cottage Pie (a healthier variant with a Sweet Potato topping)…

…followed by Low Fat/Low Sugar Black Forest Cherry Trifle…

…or Apple & Pear Strudel… (sorry, no photograph, as I was too busy tucking into the Trifle (carefully avoiding the ‘Lent-threatening’ chocolate)…

We finished it all off with a Cheese Board.

There’s was plenty of time for a good chat with everyone including a thorough look through Oliver’s increasingly impressive school-work (Engineering, Physics, Biology and Maths). Denis also continued his mass de-cluttering exercise by bringing with him a wide selection of this-and-that from his Garage.
Confused smile

By 4ish, it was all over, so we said our goodbyes and cleared up.

After taking Lee home, and returning, Trish dropped-by with Ann’s pressy, closely followed by Rosi. Phew!It’s been a busy day - but ‘good’ busy!!
Smile
Happy Birthday Ann!
