Over on Lucky Snapping April challenged us to write about Birthday's.  Well I thought a lot about this one especially as I have a big one coming up in a few days time, but didn't really want to bore you with all that again - well not too much anyway!! lol

So I was struggling with what to write until last night and now I just have to tell you.  Mick and I went out for a meal at the Hawkins Arms again and we went with our friends Barbara and Nick, it was an early Birthday meal for me, with not being around for the actual day.  Anyway, the evening is going well and someone Mick works with (Steve) turned up with his wife and brother and said hello, I had never met him before and off he goes.  Half way through the meal the landlord appears with a bottle of champagne and four glasses, asking if I was celebrating a birthday, so I explained it was next week and he said well this is for you, from the gentleman sat around the corner (Mick's work colleague!!) well I was speechless (so was Mick!!) (and yes Yvonne I cried but just a little!) I was so taken aback, never had anything like that happen to me, especially from someone I didn't know!! Anyway, as usual the food was fantastic and we had no room for dessert so just settled for a cup of tea.  Then the lights went out and I moan "great a power cut"!!!!  then the landlady appears carrying a plate with a dessert on it and a candle and Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate from them and the chef.  Well yet again I was speechless and somewhat overwhelmed by it all. 

It really started my birthday celebrations off a treat.
