Celebrations!

Wonderful daughter Ellie was 18 on Monday so on Tues we went out for a meal with Ben (my brother) , his partner Amanda and me, Jake and 3 of Ellie’s friends Hannah, Charlotte and Kate. We had a very lovely meal at one of my favourite restaurants – it is just down the road from where I work and we go there a lot for leaving dos and general celebrations.

My friend Val’s son Oliver is raising money to go to Peru next year to do some voluntary work. He is doing lots of different things but one of his ideas was a promise auction where he and his friend Tommy who is also going sold their services for various tasks like baking, ironing, DIY ect. So I paid him to make Ellie’s cake and they did a fab job. Here she is with the cake at the restaurant.

I wish her every happiness in the world and am so proud of her. She has had a lot to  cope with in the past year, whilst doing A levels and she has been fab all the way through – so has Jake. We are off to Disneyland Paris on Tues for her birthday treat and she thoroughly deserves a very special time. They have both been so supportive all the time to me and they are great!
