Jo did manage to get the barbecue going between showers while I picked the girls up from swimming. She cooked up chicken and sausages with zucchini from the garden.
The meat was accompanied with salad and home made garlic bread.
Of course the meal would not be complete without a glass of wine.
Alice brought out the birthday boy's cake with accompanying song!
It had 8 candles! Five for each decade + Three!
It was a yummy chocolate cake that was topped with homemade ice-cream and chocolate sauce!
Garfield...the female version decided she wanted to get in 'midst the action!
A pleasant relaxing evening was spent watching X Factor and Graham Norton!
Thank you Jo and girls for a lovely 53rd Birthday!
