Since my last rambling I've had another birthday! I received lots of lovely cards.......
and beautiful gifts......
and went to a very posh hotel down the road for afternoon tea and a glass of Bolly.
Also came the long awaited family reunion picnic which was held on Ashdown Forest. The last one was over thirty years ago and rellies came from far and wide to meet distant cousins some, who hitherto knew nothing about each other.
Cousin Ian came up trumps and arrived in his 1924 Buick which he's been restoring for.. well, as long as I can remember!
The workmanship on this exquisite vehicle is impeccable and deservedly so, it drew lots of admiring glances from passers by.
Dad showed off his family tree
had a lovely time chasing the 'gizmo'.
The family picnic was pronounced a great success, will it be another thirty years before someone organises the next one? Will I still be quaffing cider if I make it to 81? I bloody hope so!
The nights are drawing in and summer is almost over, what have you been doing with yours?
