Today our granddaughter, Victoria’s celebrated her eighteenth birthday. It does not seem that long ago, when I spent the day looking after Oliver and waiting to take him to hospital during the afternoon to see his new sibling. Alas things did not go to plan and Victoria did not put in an appearance until the evening. Today’s picture is our beautiful granddaughter on her eighteenth birthday.
So today, we went to Bishop’s Stortford and had breakfast in the Rosey Lea café, as well as coffee in Waterstones book shop. They currently have limited gluten-free items, but from next Monday they will have more choice.
We visited our family this evening and I met Victoria when she arrived home from college on the train; carrying presents and some remaining cakes provided by her college friends. We did not stay long as we will be celebrating her birthday again with Sunday lunch at the Coach and Horses in the village, followed by the obligatory cake at her home.
