I had a reason to celebrate this week. Tuesday was my girlfriend’s birthday, and as I’m working the early shift this week I took yesterday off as holiday so that I could spend Tuesday night with her plus go for a day out somewhere yesterday.
Well, Tuesday was a lot of fun. We spent it at some friends’ house where we had a wonderful duck dinner (plus some exceptional company) and probably a bit too much champagne and wine.
I bought Jo Carrom for her birthday. It’s a board game that requires you to shoot tiles into pockets – it’s a bit like pool but with tiddlywinks if you see what I mean. We had a game of that (our friends probably weren’t quite up for a game of strip poker) and it was a lot of fun. Even though I lost.
Yesterday saw us visit Evesham for the day. Neither of us had really ever visited it before, so it seemed like a good idea. It’s a nice place – not as picturesque as some of the other Cotswold towns in the same area, but there are some really nice parts and it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area.
The photo here is of one of the local churches in the Abbey area – St Lawrence. For some reason there are two churches right next to each other, plus a Bell Tower. No Abbey though – no doubt Henry VIII had something to do with that.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Jo. Still not as old as me and getting more fabulous as you get older ;¬)
