Mum's 80th Birthday


When Mum mentioned it was her birthday it wasn't long before she started talking about what she wanted to do. Initially it was a trip to Guernsey until we worked out how expensive that would be for all of us. Then she mentioned a trip on the Orient Express, but that was a bit pricey too. I have since found a company that does half day trips on the old style trains, so thinking of surprising her at some point with a trip on one :)
So, before we know it, she's somehow managed to persuade us to have a BBQ at our house! But how you going to refuse your mum on her 80th? By our standards it was a small affair - in past years we've had up to 150 visit during the day for a BBQ. This didn't even make 50, but it was a lovely afternoon :)
