To The Lighthouse and more...

Thank you for all your birthday wishes!  I have had a wonderful weekend and am reluctant to come back down to earth.  So here are some pictures to show you what I have been upto!

First of all there was lunch at The Grosvenor Hotel in Chester, for those of you not local it is extremely posh, well it was before we got there!


Then it was off to The Lighthouse in Llandudno to fulfill a childhood wish of staying in a lighthouse, I was a huge Famous Five fan, however, I was a little disappointed there was no secret passageway!



Our room The Telepgraph room,

Then on Saturday night it was out for a big meal with family and my mum had this cake made for me I almost didn't want to cut into it, however, teenage daughter whipped the knife out of my hand for a slice.  Luckily I managed to take a picture first!


So that is it all birthday celebrations over now and back down to earth, however, I have some fantastic memories and some lovely new toys to play with.
