The Birthday Weekend.

What a busy weekend it has been for My extremely handsome son George and I. It began with a long train journey to Liverpool. Our main purpose was to watch our team Everton in the FA cup. Before the match which was an evening kick off, we had time to visit the Walker art gallery. Where George was perplexed as to why this painting won £25000 in a  art competition. I tried to explain why, but actually I was talking nonsense and struggled to understand the reason myself. But I always try to support fellow artists. George told me I was a much better artist and should enter some art competitions. Maybe I will this year.

This photo should be at the end, where I mention the fire.
Then we headed off to Goodison Park to see our beloved Everton play. Of course our team won. Well obviously we would not go all that way if we thought they would lose.

When we returned a family dinner had been organised in the pub to celebrate Georges birthday.

Back at the house the candles were lit on the cake. Why everyone was wearing their overcoats I have no idea. There was a roaring fire in the hearth.

George and his Mum.
Now I'm too exhausted to work out how to put all these photos in their correct sequence. Oh well, maybe I'll be more awake tomorrow.


  1. So glad that you enjoyed your special weekend!
    It looks as though a great time was had by all..even "your' team doesn't get much better than that!
