On Saturday aftenoon we met both my sons and their families at a ten pin bowling alley. The children had un bowling and then playing in the area. My eldest son and family came back to our house for dinner and to stay the night ready for my birthday the next day.
On Sunday morning DS, D'D.I.L. and grandsons came into our room and sat on the bed while I opened their cards and presents to me. Lovely cards, some White Company shower hel and hand and nail cream plus some money for some crafting goodies. Oh I also had some flowers some more white lillies.I had lots of cards to open and quite a few pressies as well. Later my younger son and family arrived with cards, presents, and a lovely chocolate cake filled with fresh cream and strawberries that my DIL had made - I forgot to take a pic. Then my sis,her son,husband and her grandson came. She had come to collect the sugar flower decoration I'd made for her MIL's cake. They brought me a lovely plant (we don't exchange birthday presents unless it's a milestone one. It all felt very festive.
After my sis and family left we went out to lunch and afterwards the children played in a playground area at the pub we went to. It was a beautiful day weatherwise. We then went home for coffee and cake!!!
The children played in the garden and as it started to get colder they went in and watched a DVD while my DIl and I got tea ready.
It was then time for them to go home - boo. Matthew,Carolynn and the boys hed to go back up to Leeds -they got home about 9 o clock but the boys are now on their Easter break so no school today.
DH and I then sat down and relived the day over a glass of wine - it was very quiet.
Above the lillies- still have to open and below the plant from my sister - a beautiful colour.
