Fiona’s 40th birthday

My sister in law Fiona will be 40 years old on Tuesday, and she held a party yesterday to celebrate. Lamb. One drawback was that I forgot to take my camera, so you’ll have to makedo with a few snaps from my phone cam.

Great party, nice to catch up with people and dance until I very nearly dropped.

Most memorable bit of the weekend for me was having to help deliver a lamb whose mum was struggling a bit – with expert amateur midwifery from Sally and Simon, and a little bit of luck, we got there, and muumy and Lamb are doing fine. Lucy, still in control, aged 12, wearing her dressing gown, took it all in her stride. The rest of us were deeply moved by the whole experience!
