Grateful For Good Weather And Birthdays

This week I'm grateful for many things, here are are just a couple...

4. The beautiful weather.  We're having an Indian Summer here in Blighty.  Today has been the hottest October day in history! It hit 30* in certain parts of the country unheard of in the height of summer, let alone in October.

5. Birthdays. Yesterday I went to my baby sisters house to celebrate her birthday.  My sister, her friends, my Mama and Baba and myself made a variety of exciting cocktails and ate some lovely food.
  Today we returned for a smoked salmon and champagne breakfast. Gorgeous!
Also today I've hosted my beautiful babas 16th birthday party with nine of her friends attending. As I kept reminding my Baba, the weather is never this good in October and she might be 40 before she has a garden party again! It started well, then we had some fallings out, then they made friends and they are currently playing on the Wii.  I only hope that they go to sleep earlier than last year. I told them off at 5.45 in the morning last year!

I hope all you Brits are enjoying the weather too.


  1. Sounds like a lovely weekend, happy birthday to your daughter! :)

  2. I live in Oz - and I'm envious of your weather??!!
