I’m back in the midst of my beloved family for a few days. Partly to have a wee holiday before I head off on my mystery trip, but mostly because on Tuesday we celebrate another Diamond Jubilee, as my dear Papa turns 60.
This evening we went out for dinner (Ma, Pa, two sisters, 1 brother-in-law, 1 nephew, 1 niece, and me). It was an Italian restaurant; I had Antipasto all’italiana and Risotto al funghi (the former was delicious, the latter was not as good as I make it), and my nephew, Aidan, entertained himself by taking about 100 photos and about 20 videos on my phone, and then playing Angry Birds.
Thankfully I was able to wrestle the phone away from on a couple of occasions, and managed to grab this wee snapshot of the birthday boy and his youngest granddaughter:
In summary: happy nearly birthday Pops.
