It's a bit rubbish having your Birthday on a week day, especially when it's a big one. Today my Dad turned 60 and having to work and not wanting too much of a fuss made, tonight he enjoyed a family evening in with us.
First there was his favourite dinner – sausage and mash:
Followed by the yummy chocolate, marshmallow and crunchie cake us girls had loving prepared earlier (blog post to follow):
Finally there was presents, cards and FaceTime with my Sister and her boys so they could join in and watch him opening them all. This year we brought him a gorgeous pair of sterling silver photo cufflinks and were so happy with the result, we just had to show them off:
We managed to get all five grandchildren on them (the boys on one and girls on another) and he was as thrilled with them as we were. If you were looking for a special present for someone, you couldn't go wrong with these as they really are beautiful.
We love you a Dad, you're the best Dad/ Gramps we could ever wish for and it was a lovely evening:
