A nice lazy Saturday, after the craziness of last Saturday! After a short lie-in and a fat-loaded breakfast of bacon and eggs, it was off for a game of footie in the park with some of the lads from church and some of their friends. The sun was shining, and the weather was warm. After running around for ten minutes, I figured I might be better off in goal and letting some of the younger players do the hard work. The teams were fairly even, ending in 8-7.
A quick bath and freshen up later and we were out to celebrate Sarah’s birthday with a walk and then a meal at the Wetherspoon’s in Stockley Park. I was slightly surprised when I was told by a gatekeeper that I couldn’t take photos of the buildings, especially as I was taking photos of the wildlife, but we cleared things up and he was happy with my wildlife photos.
I must admit to being impressed with the food at the Wetherspoons as well, which was plentiful and tasty. (I suppose you’d have to try really hard to get a steak wrong, but I’ve seen some interesting attempts in my time!) The conversation was good, with an opportunity to meet some new people. We later convened for a game of Articulate, resulting in victory for the birthday girl’s team, due to some quick thinking from Sarah on a clue about the Maldives. Result! A couple of us even got to sing her Happy Birthday! Above all, the birthday girl enjoyed herself.
A very good day. 🙂
