Tuesday 13th December – 45th meeting of 2016
An extra meet-up today. With Christmas fast approaching our Christmas Lunch last week would have been our last meet for 2016 but one of our ladies was celebration her 70th birthday so we got together to wish her well.
We arrived at Cyprianis restaurant in Locksbottom at 12.30 for lunch. This is a very nice Mediterrian style restaurant. All nine of us together plus three husbands.
We ordered food and wine and started the celebrations with a ‘Happy Birthday’ toast.
Although every year we always give birthday cards, gifts are kept to special zero birthdays! So during the course of the three course meal our birthday girl was given and opened her presents. We had a theme of glamour for this occasion. So three carrier bags were hiding under the table. Opening them revealed false nails, manicure set, Audrey Hepburn mug, smellies, foot soak and cosy socks were among some of the gifts. There were so many I really can’t remember them all!
After a lovely meal and present opening along came the all sparkling birthday cake. We then sang ‘Happy Birthday’ and she duly blow out the candles!
It was a fabulous birthday lunch celebration which she thoroughly enjoyed.
This was our last meeting of 2016 and will just add that we have managed 45 outings this year which I think is a record. We all wished each other the Season’s Greetings and went joyfully on our way home.
Last blog from me for 2016 so just leaves me to wish all my readers a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year. Enjoy yourselves and we’ll be back in 2017!
