Small Cousins Meet Again

My 62nd birthday has been and gone and eldest daughter, Son in law and Jacob have returned to Surrey after a short stay. Youngest daughter, her OH and Florence visited on Sunday for lunch.

Jacob sitting on his Auntie A takes a closer look at his little cousin Florence!
Jacob demonstrates to Florence and Grandad how he's been playing with his favourite toy at Nanna and Grandad's house.
They are both happy smiley little grandchildren..............how lucky we are.

Saturday night we tried the local (4 miles away) Indian Takeaway for the first time and found it good and not too expensive.  For Sunday Lunch eldest daughter tried out my new oven by preparing a delicious lasagne for us all so I didn't have to do much cooking all weekend. A lovely way to spend a birthday. I was blessed with lots of beautiful birthday cards, books, chocs and a CD. Two cards contained letters from penfriends  - always a treat.

  11. Happy belated Birthday Sue!
    It's great that you had such a lovely birthday weekend, even getting cooked for, you lucky duck!
    There's more than just a passing resemblance between Jacob and Florence isn't there? They're both growing up so fast, it's a case of 'blink and miss it'!

  15. ooh, are you using the Indian in the Leisure Centre?
    If you are its the one we use as well - we think it serves excellent food and as we collect we get 10% of the bill.

  21. Belated wishes for a Happy Birthday! How nice you could spend the weekend with your daughters and grands. They're precious.

    I understand about unpacking the last bits from a move. We just moved house last week, and I feel like I'll be unpacking until some time in May at least.

  23. Happy Birthday!! Not sure what date it was but my dad's was the 13th and my granddaughter's was the 18th. Your grandchildren are adorable and I love them at that age. Mine are both teenagers and still adorable!! :D My garden is almost all planted as it has been so warm here already. I have lots of flowers but not one tree. You'll have surprise apples in the fall!!!
