Last Week was Birthday Week

It was a big birthday for me last week and I celebrated with a lovely family lunch at the Snooty Fox in Tetbury.

From left to right: Chris, me, Mum, sister Ros, Uncle Brian, sister Clare, brother-in-law Steve (Ros's hubby) and brother-in law Bryan (Clare's hubby).

When I opened my presents in the morning, Spencer definitely had his eye on my new slippers!!

Chris and I spent the day at Gloucester Docks (sounds romantic...!). I hadn't been there for a while and I love looking round the antique centres. The warehouses have been converted and they really are impressive buildings and could so easily have been knocked down in the past. I'm so glad they are all still there.

Most of the warehouses have names...

The National Waterways Museum...

Chris outside Gloucester Antiques Centre.....



I hope you've enjoyed the photos. It was a chilly day and we were glad to get inside the antiques centre and get warm. I saw a couple of pictures I liked but we weren't tempted enough to buy anything. We always enjoy browsing the antiques and other vintage bits and bobs on offer.

Chris also celebrated his birthday a couple of days later and just look at that cheeky Spencer trying to get in on the present action!

Take care 'til next time.
