On Saturday we travelled to Thurcroft to celebrate Nan reaching her 80th birthday. Jamie took Sarah in his new car, Sue and I travelled up together and Charlotte, Suraj and Lucas journeyed from Newark. We had booked a meal at ‘The Cartwheel’ in nearby Brookhouse, the venue was quite appropriate as Nan used to work there many years ago as a waitress. The meal was excellent, and though there was a disco dance afterwards, we left at about 10.30pm as Nan was feeling tired. Unfortunately, after the celebration, Suraj had to work the following morning and drove back to Newark with his family afterwards. Also, Jamie had a party in Northampton the following evening and also drove home. It was agreed that Nan celebrated her 80th in style and we are looking forward to her 90th.
Sue, Sarah and I stayed the night and on Sunday after breakfast, we travelled back to Harborough as it was Father4’s Day.
