Happy BBQ Day
It was Hazel's birthday today so Granma & Audrey came over in the afternoon for a BBQ in the garden. They bought the birthday cake that Granma made and we ate a chunk of that after Hazel and Audrey (it was her birthday yesterday ) blew out the candles.
I made some haloumi kebabs and marinated them with olive oil, lemon juice and herbs from the garden. Very nice they were too. The veg. burgers however were a bit overdone! Nevermind - disguised inside a big bap they tasted fine with lashings of tomato ketchup and burnt onions.
It was very pleasant in the shadey garden. Hazel had put some candles around and a cloth on the table. Archie climbed up into the tree house to take several aerial shots of us all. I expect they will appear at some point.
Audrey spent ages looking for kniting patternson the internet and then we had a couple of games of Tumbleblocks.
Hazel opened some more presents. A tin signal from a toy train set from me. A bunch of carnations from the Co-op. Boxes of chocs and more candles. A nice old Hazelnut Dainties tin. Clothes from Morgan and weird blinking eye and Marmite rings.
