A happy weekend

On Friday it was Hugh's birthday.
Penny came home from Folkestone and later in the evening Ben arrived too for the weekend. (As you can see, one of our cats joined us at the dinner table!)
Ben's present to Hugh on Friday evening was this bar of chocolate - he went out on this morning to get the actual present which was a lovely pen for Hugh to use at work. Penny had bought Hugh the complete series of 'Hong Kong Fuey' which we watched on Friday evening!

On Saturday my parents came over mid morning to spend the day and have a celebration lunch with us. Before lunch though Hugh opened his presents from my parents, one of them being this smart sweatshirt.
Lunch was Hugh's favourite - roast pork with all the trimmings.

For dessert we had birthday cake, made of course, by Penny.
Ben and Penny returned to their respective flats this afternoon and the house is now feeling very empty and quiet!

It has been a lovely weekend, having all my family around me and I can't finish this post without remembering this lovely lady, whose birthday would have been today, my gorgeous Gran.
She may no longer be with us, but I have such a wealth of wonderful memories of her.
