Dear Hubby 50 Years Old Today........

Well you know what they say, the sun shines on the righteous. It has been the most gorgeous day you could have imagined. We started quite early with fruit juice and tea in bed, then card and present opening. There was a fab present from a very dear friend, a DVD boxed set "Best of the Old Grey Whistle Test". If you are of a certain age you will remember this programme with fond memories, it was hosted by the late great John Peel, Bob Harris and Annie Nightingale. It was on BBC2 on a Tuesday evening. Oh the memories!!!!!!!!!!
We got ourselves sorted and drove 30minute into the Northumberland hills. A steep walk along the edge of the forest and we arrive at a Nature Reserve, look at the colour of the sky. We were in t-shirts, incredible for this time of year.

Snapshots from our day...........

DH recons we walked about 4miles, not bad for a couple of oldies. It was followed by a pint of Guinness and a packet of crisps at a nearby pub. This evening it is just the three of us, going out for a meal. Saturday however, is the big day, we are having a party here at the house. Preparations begin in the morning......... you will find me in the kitchen for the next two days. By the way, the Truffles are delicious.
