Last Sunday our family gathered at our daughter M's home for a special celebration. She hosted a joint early birthday bbq for Mr P's August birthday and her daughter's 21st. (She'll be back at university for the actual day in September). Granddaughter and her boyfriend made the chocolate cake then decorated it.

Our daughter D is staying with us at the moment and we've been spending time relaxing in the garden. The chairs and table set were a birthday gift from her and her three boys and their girlfriends.
We've started gathering the figs from the fig tree.
Unfortunately only two nectarines matured and ripened
as the rest dropped beforehand on windy days.
Yesterday we took a drive over to Cannon Hall and had a browse around the farm shop, bought some food which comes from local sources to take home for lunch and had a drink in The White Bull pub /restaurant on the site. The pub is called after a prize-winning pedigree bull from Cannon Hall Farm.
No news on the xrays Mr P and I had recently as they haven't been received by our GP yet. Not a lot of long distance walking can be done at present, but it's good to get out for a drive when the weather is fine and plan where we park the car so that we don't have to walk far. This Sunday we're going out with family members for Mr P's actual birthday meal. Unfortunately our son, wife and our grandson L cannot be with us as grandson is in London again for this year's Summer theatre performances with the National Youth Music Theatre. Next month he starts his course, equivalent to a degree, at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
Thank you for your visit. Wishing you a good weekend!
