Our first Do of the Ruby variety was for David & Rosi back in July, last year, but today, we’re slightly further afield, and off to Mick & Jane‘s to help celebrate their recent Ruby Anniversary (last Wednesday).
It was a very relaxed affair around at theirs, where we had the chance to get together with friends and family who we hadn’t seen in quite a few years! 👍. By a strange coincidence, having not been to Peterborough since their joint birthday party back in February, we were also in the city last night at the Cathedral for Concerts by Candlelight.
It was a very pleasant afternoon (24ºC!) and we all sat around nattering in the garden. We had a long chat with Karen (sans Phil, who initially was at the local Rock Weekend, but joined us later) and met their friends Karon and Steve. Guy and Becky were there, but Karl and Sian were elsewhere, as Sian was about to give birth! 😯. We also saw Sophie too. I guess there must have been around 30 of us there enjoying the very last of 2023’s sunshine.
Jane and her friends had been busy in the kitchen and Mick took charge of the BBQ. The food was delicious! Of note… the Lasagne, the Sausages and homemade ice-cream – one of Jane’s recipes.
We stayed until around 7.45 when the temperature began to drop significantly. We said our goodbyes and wished the ‘Ruby Two’ all the best for their forthcoming holiday.
We enjoyed a very pleasant drive home, although it got dark really quickly! We were indoors just after 8.30pm, finishing the evening with a cuppa and watching a recording of Fantasy Film Music from this year’s Proms. 👍
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
