We had a fabulous afternoon and evening at Becky's 30th birthday. They had hired a barn conversion. It was now a very luxurious house with huge open plan areas which just begged to used for parties.
The food was laid out buffet-style and people could graze all afternoon and evening. The drinks were stacked on tables and counter tops and would have put the average pub to shame, in terms of quantity.
Everyone seemed to get on swimmingly and we had a wonderful time catching up on everyone's news and what is going on in the remoter parts of the family.
A wonderful event, and only 1.5 miles from our hotel, so there was no long journey home afterwards.
