112 days to go: A double celebration
After the birthday party came the big day.
Ben was nine and Sam had his (fourth) driving test on the same day.
Happily, it was a day of celebration all round and we went out to toast the day at our local Italian restaurant with my parents.
After the meal the lights were turned down and the waitress brought out a cake for Ben as Happy Birthday played over the sound system and the rest of the restaurant applauded.
I had a lovely day too - enjoying some simple pleasures.
I had taken time off to take my dad to the dentist near Crosby and while he had his treatment I took the dog for a run along the beach.
It was a still day and there was a lovely fine drizzle and as it was high tide there were fantastic views of Antony Gormley's Another Place.
Just me and Enrique Iglesias (on my iPod) - bliss!
