Today Rick officially became a pensioner, I know he has not gone out to work for a few years but at least he now is officially classed as a retiree. No money in it but he has earned the title.
Ingrid contacted Rick through Skype to wish him a happy birthday, so very nice to talk to her and see Ingrid, Zac and Sammy ( grand children ) Carol and Graham were also able to join in the conversation. We realy did appreciate modern technology. Ingrid said that she had opened a special bottle of wine for her Dad's birthday and was drinking it when she spoke to us. Oh yeah Ingi as if we would believe that. Later on that morning a parcel was delivered for Rick. We had no idea who it was from and had a interflora sign on it. We all thought that it was a flower but upon opening the parcel, the contents were a big surprise. ( see photos ) What a lovely thought and so very special.
Carol and Graham had arranged a BBQ for his birthday . They invited their friends over to meet us and celebrate Rick's birthday. What a lovely group of people they were, it seemed like we had known them for ages and made us feel part of their group.They even presented Rick with gifts, how nice of them. Graham did a sterling job as the cook and Carol made the most beautiful salads. A feast fit for a king. It was a lovely day and a birthday to remember for Rick. Now we are all complaining of feeling full and we are never going to eat that much again, not ever. Graham has just come and asked us if we would like a drink and perhaps something to eat, oh not again but it seems the bananas are going off and need to be eaten. What amazes me is that they can afford bananas in the first place.
It is 11pm and time for bed, it has been a great day. Easy day tomorrow, might take the campervan for a run and see how good we are with the Garmin. Dinner
