Well, the family and friends get together for Lindsey's birthday went brilliantly! There were some wonderful fancy dress costumes.
I think Lindsey's friend Chris wins best big dinosaur and in the front left hand corner of the photo is the best mini dinosaur , one of Lindsey's other friend's baby, called Lara, who was also wearing a dinosaur costume.
Clara and Adam looked wonderful in their outfits, Clara an elf complete with pointed ears and Adam a Hobbit complete with the ring. But only being 18 months old, he wouldn't keep the cloak on for more than a few minutes
The point where Adam Baggins hears he's got to go and throw the ring in the fire inside the mountain all on his own!
Lindsey set the hall beautifully and everyone says they had a great time. It was especially nice for the family members that made it, as it's a long time since we have been able to gather.
But goodness does it take it out of you! I could barely walk by the end of the evening and could even feel it in my legs the following day. Setting up and attending is a lot of work, luckily plenty of people stayed to help us put everything away at the end of the day.
Now of course the fridge and cupboards are semi full of the left over food, that didn't get used up on the day, so we have been having some lovely buffet style meals ever since.
We will be having a few friends and family over to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee, at the beginning of June, so we won't be needing to get any drink in with whats left over from Lindsey's party.
Yesterday we had a trip to the garden centre and I fell in love with a beautiful pavilion, which I thought would look wonderful in our garden.
I just love all the detail especially around the top.
