We had a day in the country yesterday, as we headed out to Lyneham for BF’s birthday. The weather was glorious and the little people were able to spend every waking moment outside. BF’s lovely InLaws came up as well, which was lovely as we haven’t seen them since last August. (Unfortunately, BF’s DH is away for a couple of weeks with work.) We were able to eat outside and decided to eat together at 5pm. I was a little worried that DS might refuse to eat what was offered, shepherd’s pie with potato & sweet potato mash and cabbage, so I’d taken Plan B with me – butternut squash risotto. DS was a little star, he scoffed everything on offer, including half of my slice of birthday cake! (We’re trying the 5pm family tea tonight as well.) I believe my GodDaughter was having the risotto for her lunch today!
