Day 291 – Still Going…

It was my wife’s birthday a week ago and I bought her flowers (of course). Normally, cut flowers only last a few days in our house as it’s pretty warm, but as you can see these are still going strong. It may cost more buying them from a florist rather than a supermarket, but they definitely last longer…

Day 286 – Let’s Celebrate…

It was my wife’s birthday yesterday, and as usual she received a fair few cards from friends and family. There does seem to be a bit of a theme to the cards – around half of them refer to either gin, wine or prosecco. They certainly know her!!!

Day 204 – Not A Birthday Cake…

It was our daughter’s birthday today and she asked if she could have ‘fruit’ instead of a cake… Well, no ordinary fruit would do so we made this watermelon ‘boat’- it was carved out and shaped, just as you would a pumpkin, and then filled with a selection of fresh fruit. Needless to say, she loved it!

Day 94 – Message In A Bottle…

Yesterday’s lunchtime visitors brought me a belated birthday present. Fair to say that most of my birthday gifts this year involved gin, and this was no exception – a monthly ‘subscription’ of different gins to try! I’m looking forward to future deliveries…
