Monday 5th October 2009 Mike is 70
The four brothers celebrating Mikes birthday yesterday. It was such a lovely surprise for him he was absolutely gob smacked. I managed to keep it a secret until we actually got into the restaurant until then he thought it was just him and I going out for lunch. Then suddenly there they all were - I of course had spotted the cars in the car park but managed to keep him so distracted that he missed them. It was a lovely day and we had a beautiful view over the valley as we were perched on the side of the north downs. As you can see by the photo the weather was very kind to us and the sun shone. Today is very different it is dull and overcast and has been raining over night.
We finally got home at about 4.30pm and I was totally shattered having been up since 3am so we went off to bed for a sleep. I didn't wake until midnight so I just had a hot drink and went back to bed and have slept until 7am. This is quite unheard of but I must have been very tired and needed the sleep.
The meal we had was nice but nondescript so today I am going to make something a bit tasty for lunch I am going to roast a chicken with stuffing Hairy Biker style Roast and then I thought I would make creme caramel for desert which is Mikes all time favourite.
Well that about it for now I am so far behind that I really need to get started - have a great day all.
