After collecting my new DragonDrop shirts and kitting the boys out in the all new 12yr old edition , we headed off to a lovely garden at a friends mum’s house in Ripon to celebrate their boys birthday. The best gift was a massive cardboard box which kept all the kids amused for hours.
Following the rather splendid garden birthday party, we walked up for a look around Ripon. I’ve not actually had a look around the smallest city in England for a number of years, even though it’s just a few miles from where we live. We were lucky enough to see the bride of a wedding sweep past us as we loitered around the Cathedral. Felix bought some Nurf guns which he’s been after for a while. World cup viewing was taken in by all of us at a friends house via a big screen projection. What a disappointment of a match though. Our half time frisbee and nurf session on the stray was way more exciting. After the footy, we headed back to ours for a fire bin and a few drinks. A nice collection turned up and it was getting light by the time I wound down for the night. Sunday – a bit of a tidy up followed by a super BBQ in our back yard with some old friends. Nice way to spend a day – I’d just got the last thing off the bbq before the heavens opened – good timing!
