Duck Faces and Trifle

image

It was The Bloke’s mother’s 80th birthday today, so we travelled up north to join the rest of his (rather large) family and close friends for a celebration at a lovely hotel.

The last time I met them all together was for The Bloke’s father’s funeral a few years ago, so it was nice to see everyone again in much better circumstances.

It was a really lovely afternoon – I talked and laughed lots, practiced my best ‘duck face’ with The Bloke’s cousin (during which I looked like I was having some sort of strange episode), joined in the family photographs and ate some pretty tasty trifle. It couldn’t have been any more British if they tried – awesome – and with a truly brilliant group of people. And I’ve developed my duck face technique too – apparently it’s all about the dimples at the side of the lips, which I’m getting better at.

That’s a lie, I still think I look stupid…

After a fifteen hour day, I’m now back home, but I was glad that after a horrible week for The Bloke, he was able to be around people who love and care for him…

I’m feeling exhausted and want to go to bed, but I agreed to post every day for #NaBloPoMo, so today’s description is lacking. However, I’ve got some exciting updates and a whole bunch of comments to reply to, so I’ll do that while hosting #SundayBlogShare tomorrow… Thank you so much for the crazy amount of support we got this week!!!

Hope to see you all there!!
