dad's 80th party

It was my dad's 80th birthday on sunday & we had a small celebration.   The sun shone & it was lovely to be able to sit in the garden all day.

His mobility scooter was used to have timed races around the garden - only one small "incident" but luckily he was indoors at the time so didn't see it - phew!!!

He was a woodwork & craft teacher for many years and his reaching such a milestone birthday has got me thinking about what he's made & materials he's worked with over the years.  I think that's probably the subject for another blog - I will try and write it tomorrow


  1. happy birthday karen's dad, how lovely for you all to be able to party in the garden. looking forward to reading all about him.

  2. You look like you all had a good time! Happy birthday to your dad! and how nice it must have been to all get together!
