Having a little breather for a couple of hours before we carry on with Jaygo’s birthday weekend. We started on Friday night with a game of rounders on the stray that we were invited to. This was really good fun for everyone. Rounders, BBQ, cake and catching up. This photo shows the line up – little to big selection process. We had a few spare kids with us as Jaygo was having a sleep over. J & H and their brood were there also as well as a whole bunch of lovely others.
I was looking forward to the morning of his birthday (yesterday) nearly as much as he was. We’d put the feelers out for an electric guitar and amp. My old friend McParty was selling a Marshall amp, meanwhile a guitar came our way and the serendipity of it all couldn’t have been better. He’s been having guitar lessons at school now for a while and he’s just at that age when he’s really discovering music – he particularly likes ROCK. Here’s a picture of him doing the birthday dance.We had a lovely day of pottering about, playing guitar! the evening rolled into a rather impromptu BBQ – we’d planned on having a couple of people over and it expanded a little to be somewhere between a gathering and a party. Some old friends that we’ve not caught up with for years. Some splendid attendees and some nice bbq chow which merged into a chilled choons, fire bin and wine type night.
Lots more batting to come in this B’Day weekend – we’re off to Lightwater Valley today and we’re supposed to be going to another BBQ this evening! A BBQ hat-trick no less. A few more photos of the weekend can be found in this flickr set here (which I’ll add to with any photos I take today)
