A lovely birthday picnic!

The beautiful Emily has a special birthday coming up, and so on Saturday a bunch of us got together to celebrate our girl.  Such fun!  I instagrammed it up (is instagram a verb as well as a noun?) a storm - here are a few of my pics from the day!

The birthday girl opening a gift.
 Adam finding his present a *little* bit harder!

 Bringing the cheese!

 Hadn't seen Dave in ages!  It was lovely to catch up with him and the lovely Charlotte!

 Wilf on parade.

 Scones and clotted cream - such a lovely summer treat!

 The promised storm never arrived, but clouds moved rapidly in the brisk wind!

 Ems is the *queen* of bunting!

 Pretty, pretty Lou.

 Lou and Siobhán kindly bought me a badger mask, which they brought along to the party to give to me.  I love it!


 Me and my favourite boy <3.

Such a lovely, chilled, fun afternoon.  Good food, great company, and a chance to fete a wonderful lady.  Love you bunches, Emily - I'm so very glad we are friends!

  1. Love the mask! A picnic is such a great idea for a party!


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
