happy birthday, my love

Birthdays in our family all come in pairs (at least – we have four in one week in August).  So this weekend was Mr Mc’s birthday.  We celebrated with a bit of this and a bit of that.

A bit of this – card making was enthusiastically embraced by D and K.IMG_0664

A bit of this – lemon drizzle cake ( I love that it was after we started making it, R came in and declared that what he really wanted was… lemon drizzle cake).IMG_0657

A bit of this – a walk on my favourite beach on Sunday afternoon.  The camera batteries were flat, so this photo was actually from a visit four years ago. That little chap is D: how fast time is passing.  The beach was the same but, oh, how we all have changed.IMG_2645

And a bit of this.IMG_0661

I decided the best birthday present I could give R this year was time off: so he spent Saturday skiing with his brother in a blizzard at Glenshee.  There’s nothing like battling with the elements on the side of a Scottish mountain to make you feel really alive.  Happy Birthday, my love!
