weather was good enough that we could stand outside to watch the flypast of a Spitfire plane which had been organised by birthday boy, Terry Poxon. Mr Poxon is a huge fan of the Spitfire plane and (according to the local newspaper) planned to play a recording of the air-raid siren, and then some of the speeches of Winston Churchill followed by the 'all clear' We didn't hear the sirens but loved watching the spitfire - he gave us all value for money as the display lasted quite a while ... I just love the sound of those powerful engines
Whilst in 'vintage' mood/mode ... this short video made me smile. They certainly knew how to party in the 'old days' LOL

We have tickets to visit Brogdale Fruit Farm today. In fact they are last year's entry tickets we were unable to use as the weather was so wet, their car parks were too muddy to allow access to any vehicle that wasn't heavy duty 4x4 types. Sadly the rain/windy conditions today made us decide to stay at home instead and just take it easy. We'll probably drive out to visit the mums later but that will be it - stay home and finish up the party nibbles (naughty but nice)!
