Reasons to be cheerful - Part Two

We celebrated our third big birthday this month, this time my husband, Tod's 60th. We had a great evening and the weather was very kind.  We had the celebrations at a near-by hostelry where we were entertained by The Cheats, an excellent cover band who happen to contain two of our close friends. I have to thank John and Trish who organised the food and decorations as well as John playing in the band,  how lucky we are to have such fab friends.  Quite a few of these were Tod's school mates from  Dr Challoner's in Amersham, and others were friends from Bedford College of Education in the early 70's as well as newer pals made at work and play.

We were very grateful to be able to sit outside as it was so warm

So nice to see Alexandra, the next generation.

Old School pals.

Very old friends, Dave and Elaine....(forgive me - friends of many years)

... not quite as old, but 'still getting on a bit' friends....
Heather, Jim, Keith and Lynne who also very dear,

a good selections of real ales was really appreciated

The Cheats kept us entertained with a great selection of songs we knew and loved as well as some of their own numbers.

John reminding everyone he's know Tod for 40 years plus...
and we all sang Happy Birthday, and he blew out the candles on his cake!

We kept on rockin' but not till the early hours ... we all like to enjoy Sunday morning these days.

Not a lot to show on the creative front I'm afraid, and another busy week coming up.  I'm not grumbling about fine weather, but I'm not much good in heat so taking things very easy.
Hope you have a good week,

It really is heartening to see Mr T in such fine fettle Jill and enjoying a great party by the look of it. Can't help reading that blog post title and wanting to burst into my Ian Dury impersonation..... wish him a belated Happy Birthday from me!

Great photos Jill, looks like a good time had by all :-) I'm the same with the heat - I have a 'faulty thermostat' so can't stand it too hot or too cold :-/
