Birthday Girl

Wednesday 16th we travelled down to Kent as Del had a doctors appointment. We stayed the night at Al's Mum and Dads, Pam and Alf's. On Thursday 17th it was Al's Birthday (29 today and 20 years practice) so it was nice for her Mum and Dad to wake up with her. Al opened all her cards and presents and then we met up with family and friends at lunchtime for a carvery at the Toby near Sevenoaks.
There turned out to be twelve of us and Al was greeted with more cards and presents. She had a lovely Bon Jovi cake made for her by Cliff and Lou with 29 candles on it (but only six would fit on).

At 3.00pm we were kindly taken to the station by Zoe and Greg and we spent the afternoon in London.
We were just in time for happy hour at the pubs and the atmosphere was just fantastic with all the union jacks flying about for the Jubilee and the Olympics.
We ended up having nibbles in a cocktail bar and just about made the last train home back to Derwent6.  Thanks guys for making it such a special day...
