We came back this afternoon having had a very good time with my Mum. Her 70th went off very well. My brother Howard and his girlfriend Annabel had hired a pink limo (pictures to follow) from Portsmouth (where they live) and arrived at mid-day Sat to take us for a drive. We went to collect Auntie Susan (who was very shy about getting in the ridiculous car – but after a few glasses of pink champagne she was a carefree as the rest of us). Eva couldn’t believe it, she actually got to sip Lilt from a champagne glass sat in the back of a pink limo. We drove about quite a while then went to the Rose and Olive Branch pub where 20 of my mum’s friends had gathered for a posh pub lunch – the R.O.B does great pies! We had a great time and mum was made up with the cake I made (thanks to Liz for the Nigella recipe). We had another little drive about and drank more pink champagne…so to be honest it didn’t matter where we went – but mum wanted to visit a few people who couldn’t get out to her party. After a while we drove back to mum’s flat and carried on with a smaller party there until the early evening when we finally ended up watching some bad tv and mum fell asleep in her chair. All in all a lovely day. The limo being the star of the show.

Today we were in recovery most of the day so took it easy, had a lovely lunch then headed back to Bristol. Mark went off to Foundation and I have retired to bed. But obviously not to sleep just yet. I have the Church Times to read and chamomile tea to sip. So, I’ll be off now.
