Lydia's 21st birthday is on Monday. So the family have decamped to Centreparc in Elveden forest for the weekend. Rabbits, deer, squirrels, mallard and much other wildlife has wandered past the windows of our chalet.

The dog (who we brought with us) has been entertained by all this and, considering, has been remarkably restrained!

Dinner last night was fun. Fred had his first plate of mussels, and tesco clubcard vouchers paid the bill. Thank you, Tesco.
