Today is Mum in Law’s 85th Birthday, she is a special woman, she lost her husband when Hubby was just 4, he was the youngest of 4 kids. She bought those kids up with no social help, they were her everything.
We are taking her out for lunch to a place we celebrated her 80th with a big family party, she moaned about the portion sizes being too big, even though she has a ‘pensioner portion’, then enjoyed a huge pudding of ice cream and Shortbread 😉 She will be spending the rest of the day with other family members that have come down from the mainland to visit her as a surprise. If they’d let us in on the ‘secret’ we could have booked a bigger table 🙄
As we will be eating a lot earlier than a usual Sunday, I bought some Aldi Mussels in White wine sauce for us to try tonight.
I have made a seeded loaf, so that we have something to ‘dunk’. Also made a few rolls for work lunches, to go with bacon and lentil soup made last weekend.
It has been such a lovely weekend, shame it has to end.
Happy Birthday Mum B xx
PS she loved the cakes 😊
Normal service will resume tomorrow 😇 My postman has been busy bringing me the makings of Christmas – 5 weeks to go – I have Hampers to fill 🤗 I hope you will enjoy my makings 😀
I have already had some orders for fudge from friends, so December looks like it is going to be busy 🙃
