This weekend Mr B and I drove up north for a surprise. My father-in-law and nephew were celebrating their birthdays. Mr B snr. had no idea all his children and their families were going to be with him to celebrate and turn his weekend topsy-turvy.
Mr B sr. played golf with his sons and we all enjoyed lunch outside for the first time this year.
Once the boys headed off for the next 9 holes the rest of us relaxed. Birthday boy jr. drove.
My niece was a most efficient ball-girl.
That evening we all enjoyed a meal together. There were presents, balloons, confetti, cake and champagne. It was marvellous.
The following day Mr B and I began our journey home. We spontaneously stopped for a look round Lincoln. Steep streets, unique shops, a magnificent cathedral and lunch in a tearoom made this a most pleasant pitstop.
I had a fantastic weekend. I loved every minute. Can I share a secret with you all? I even loved coming home.
