Pa’s Birthday

Ma and Pa organised a meal to celebrate Dad’s 76th birthday so we took over half of The Chuch Inn in Cheadle Hulme for a few hours.

There were four generations there; from Ma and Pa through to my sister’s daughter’s two kids, Paige and Riley. Here’s a pic of my niece Emma and Paige. I remember getting told off by the maternity matron at Stepping Hill for putting my coat on Carole’s bed just after Emma was born; how time flies.

Last night was smoked mackerel followed by a sweet chilli chicken dish and a cheesecake pud! I fancied a cheese and ham toastie to round the meal off.
