50th Birthday BBQ

Shelley arranged a great day yesterday for my 50th birthday.

We had a few friends and family round for a barbecue lunch in the garden.

Linda, her husband, Rob and their two waitresses, Megan and Jo, did an excellent job setting up, cooking and serving us all.

Even the cats were having a good time.

The weather was perfect, warm and sunny with a slight breeze to keep us cool.

I had setup a Scalextric. That turned out to be very popular. Shelley gave out "clear round" rosettes to anyone who completed two laps without coming off.

Gwen's mum,  Gloria,  was one of the first up. She'd had practice at Christmas so knew what she was doing.

Much to my surprise and delight, Don bought me an Audi R8 and Andy and Lisa bought me a Mini with another to follow. When I got a moment I put some digital chips in so they could be tried out. The Audi stuck to the track very well but the Mini held its own.

By the end of the day the Mini no longer had it's spoiler and a wing mirror and the R8's fin was only held on one side. All easily repaired.

I got 50 boxes of Smarties from Keith and Vanessa and a T-shirt from Lee and Lisa with an appropriate theme :-)

When everyone had gone, there was only one thing to do...
