Official Birthday

Some people are so blessed that they have a birthday, and an official birthday. The latter being the time when the whole nation can join in to celebrate.

So it was that the Gorse Fox and the Silver Vixen made our way across Sussex to celebrate an Aunt's official 80th birthday. Not only was it a chance to wish her well, it was also an opportunity to meet up with cousins (and their children) who we rarely see. It really was a lovely day with great food (and tons of it) great company and loads of catching up. It was particularly nice to meet with an Aunt who now lives is Suffolk - and we haven't seen for about 5 years.

It was a sobering thought that the Gorse Fox is now the oldest male surviving in this branch of the family.
