Good afternoon folks, and can I say welcome to Sue.  I have known Sue for a while through Patricia's  blog.  Sue moved house and disappeared off blog land, it turns out that she has been poorly after getting a piece of glass in her foot. So ((((hugs))))) being sent.

Well as my title says we had a happy son-in-law yesterday, it's his 50th birthday today but he had his party last night.   Now it wasn't a "normal party". Tammy had arranged for the band " Blackwolf " to come and play for him, they are a Bristol based band. She did a bid thing that won and they came all the way up to Perth,   So friends who are into rock music were invited to the house for this.  Three of the friends came up from London.  Everyone had a fab night and Derek had a  brilliant night. Lots of memories.    Here are some photos.  Oh yes he loved his BEER CAKE really didn't want to undo it but every one wanted to see it.

One happy 50 year old

This was his birthday cake

I think Jude Tammy's friend made a great job of his cake!

Well that's about all for today, I am having my normal problem trying to get my photos right.

Thank you all for your comments about my find at Lidl.   I have been playing and have made a deeper based box using the template from the flat box.  Will post that maybe tomorrow to show you what I did.

    Bought a gizmo to enable me to weigh my luggage for November, so just now need to find out what weight is allowed. Kate x

    Good night had by all I am sure.
    Not many could get one of their favourite bands to come to the house to entertain them and their friends.
    A birthday to remember for a long time.
