Birthday Fun

Today we celebrated my mother in law’s birthday. It was a family event with four generations of immediate family attending. I don’t know who thought a pantomime was a good idea, but no one sought my opinion. I cannot comment on the panto as I had my earphones firmly plugged into my ears while I watched iPlayer downloads on my tablet. I do not like pantomimes.

The pantomime went on too long, as far as I’m concerned,  so our planned interlude at my mother in law’s was cut somewhat short. The day improved greatly once we got to the Bukhara restaurant at the Lorne Hotel. My mother in law had been before and wanted to go back, I cannot blame her. The food was excellent and, while the menu is not overburdened with vegetarian dishes, they were happy to make accommodation for us; the dhal makhani is, as they say, “to die for!” I think it would be fair to say that everyone enjoyed themselves, lots of fun, Christmas crackers,  a huge cake,  photographs,  a really good family get together.  However, as is so often the case, we finished a little too late for the younger members, but they still enjoyed the day.  Finishing so late also means that, once again, I find myself in the car,  approaching midnight,  writing my blog on my phone to hit my deadline. Still, less than a month of my blog a day challenge left, then I may relax.
