just a little weekend update…

So it was Happy Birthday this past Friday to Jayne. Happy Day! We celebrated on Saturday by a cook-in-the-oven BBQ (on account of the rain) and an ice-cream cake ram packed with chocolate and sweets. Oh my, that was filling. We had fun listening to some music selected by the kids and then the adults took over and introduced some classics such as Bohemian Rhapsody and YMCA to the younger ones. I’m not sure who enjoyed that bit more and the decision is still out over who won the song identification game, Paul or Jayne. 😉

On Sunday we enjoyed the luxury of a little lie in and after a walk/gym session we did some work refurbishing one of the two wooden garden benches we bought on ebay a couple of months ago. It’s all stripped now and ready for a coat of something or other to be decided….

We finished the hard work in time to watch the end of the British Open which was in Hoylake this year. It was neat to see the local scenery on the screen and the extra traffic and people in the area didn’t cause much disruption – although Stella did miss a day at doggy day care and a walk to Hilbre Island as a result…. 😉
