Its Nick’s birthday today. The weather has been a bit strange, with very strong winds and short downpours. But, presents and the promise of a lavish curry dinner (including Chicken Tikka Masalla!) are keeping us both in very good spirits.

For lunch,Nick had a special lunch “fry up”, complete with authentic UK Baked Beans (courtesy of my mom and dad, who sent Nick a boxful of English goodies). The sun is now making a comeback so hammock time might be called for. Happy Birthday Nick!
