3 Years

Hugh and Sarah have been going out for 3 years and yesterday was their anniversary. I thought it would be a good excuse to take some photos and although Hugh didn't necessarily agree, I'm glad to say that Sarah was on my side. They were going out for dinner and agreed to me taking a few shots before they went out. They are such a lovely couple and both so photogenic.
Congratulations you two.

Dinner out

It was my birthday last week but I didn't want to do much. During the day Emily and I met up with Mum, Dad and Kay for a coffee at Nero's. Coffee turned into 3 hours of sitting and chatting, with Claire and 2 of her friends joining us during her lunch hour. It was just what I wanted for the day. In the evening we went out for dinner at Prezzo with the "children" . Prezzo is one of my favourite restaurants and any excuse to go there is a good one! Needless to say we had to take a few photos while we were there to mark the occassion.

Another birthday marked and now time to get on with the rest of the year :)

Family visit

Jon's daugher, Michelle and grandson, Josh came to stay with us over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May. We hadn't seen them since January so it was great to have a chance to catch up and just spend some time together. The weather was lovely and we ended up braai-ing (bbq-ing) each evening, much to Josh's delight! There was time for some playing on the DS. There are times where we're all sitting there playing individual games and others when Michelle, Josh, Emily and Claire will link up and play a game together
Josh enjoyed being able to go outside with Jon and they spent a fair bit of time in the garden where Josh helped with watering the plants each evening. It was lovely to see them spending time together
Michelle was telling me that before they come for a visit Josh looks forward to seeing the dogs again. On this occassion I said I would take a photo of him with Wallace if he would let me take a photo of him with his Mum and Grandpa.

Josh still wasn't so sure about posing and ended up being tickled ;o) Finally he agreed to stand behind so we could have a group shot.
Hopefully it won't be as long before we get the chance to spend some time together again.
