Another weekend in Ely, another birthday celebration. This time it was an early 60th party for me. Organising this mob is a bit like herding cats so I was really lucky to get this many in one place at the same time! I’m happy as Gordon and I can celebrate all over again next month!
The party started on the Friday night with Shona, Ian, Ellie and Robert. We had a few drinkies (OK quite a few drinkies) and a burger in the amusingly named Prince Albert pub.
On Saturday night the rest of the mob arrived and we went to the Boathouse (Gordon and my second Saturday there in a row) and had another lovely meal, some great conversation with a fairly large smattering of hilarity and oodles of silliness probably helped along by a fair amount of alcohol!
The following day we had loads of visitors to the boat (a great chance to add a few people ‘on the poop deck’) and got to say a fairly hungover goodbye in some glorious sunshine. The ‘youngsters’ had gone on to sample some of the delights of Ely’s night life and were feeling a touch jaded!
I really couldn’t have had a better early birthday celebration. Thank you to everyone who turned up and made it a weekend to remember!
