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!

I wore...
Shoes - Clarks
Jeans - Gap
Shirt - Next
Caridgan - Marks and Spencer

Lovely and handsome kids! Very interesting about Crosby Beach. I like the Angel of the North and I've read that some of Gormley's will be probably be displayed in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (www.ysp.co.uk) as well. Thanks for the info. Ciaoa .A.

Such an upbeat post! It brought a smile to my face this afternoon when I'd rather be out enjoying the sun than working (mind you, in this economy, I'm grateful for the job!).

Jane said...

Christina - thank you. I think they are great too.
Darla - it is always busy here.
A - I will check out the site. I hope a Gormley exhibition comes your way.
Stacy - so you have the sun. I hope you managed to grab some.

Your children are stunning -- and you don't look old enough to have a son that age!

Congrats to all, you must be very proud :)

The British-Irish Council does not have executive powers but meets biannually to discuss issues of mutual importance. Similarly, the British-Irish Inter-Parliamentary Body has no legislative powers but investigates and collects witness evidence from the public on matters of mutual concern to its members.roof insulationsalle
