Sunday Lunch Carvery
On Sunday 16th August, we drove over to our friends/relations Ivor and Maureen. I think I've explained this before. Ivor is my first husband's father and Maureen is my first husband's first wife, now married to Ivor. Work that one out if you can. So Ivor is Granddad to my son Jason and daughter K. Maureen is just known as 'Nanny' to any babies! Anyway, it was a lovely day, the sun shone and we were able to play in their garden after we'd walked into town, done a little bit of shopping, then went for a meal in a hotel. They do a carvery there and the meal was lovely.
Naturally we had a few photos around the table:
Maureen and me at the table. I bought the top in Asda because I wasn't used to the hot weather so hadn't taken any 'cool' tops.
Jason took this rather lovely shot of Jack who earlier 'didn't want' his photo taken!
The whole crowd, apart from me of course. Jack, Rene (Sam's Mum), Jason, Sam, Ivor and Maureen. Look at those dinners. Yummy. The trifle in the centre of the table is for Jack's pudding. He didn't want anyone else to take it from the display! Kitty was asleep in her pram behind Sam.A last lunch one. Ivor, Maureen, Me, Jack, much happier now.
We walked back to I & Ms' house and passed this building with rather interesting brickwork:

Into The Garden
Sam eating one of Ivor's apples, in a rather Reubenesque (if that's right) pose! The tree looked like something from Snow White:
Rene relaxing in front of the red apple tree.
Rather a lot of family shots were taken, so I've selected just a few:
I was talking to Kitty, Jason was clearly bored - or maybe keeping an eye on Jack.
I really like this one of me, Jack, Jason and Kitty. I was also pleased with the two I took of the 'Green' family:
I love the way Kitty is watching Jack!
Jason acting as a tree for this hanging chair! Jack thought it was great fun. It's his now.
Jack does quite a few acrobatics with his Daddy and this is their latest trick. Jason throws Jack up in the air!! AAAAH!
I was rather pleased I managed to capture those 2 shots.
Back to Wickhambrook
We drove home, which takes about an hour and were all pretty tired. There was a reasonable sunset that evening and I made a montage of the photos - sadly it won't load, so here are a couple of my favourites:
Monday Montage of Kitty
I was going home on the Monday teatime. Jack went to school in the morning and Rene was looking after Kitty. I ran the hoover around for Sam and took a last opportunity to take some photos of Kitty.
I liked them all so decided to do a 'joiner'. I love how she kicks her feet up in the air. What a lucky Gran I am. If you click on the montage, the individual shots are rather special.
Back to Earth
It's rained more or less non-stop since I arrived back in Ireland. Today's been particularly bad, with very heavy rain, the odd burst of sun, several rainbows (I managed to catch one) then much more rain. I have very wet washing out. The builders have been busy preparing the floors of the extension for the concrete. This is happening tomorrow. Progress, whoopee!
