Mum had her 80th birthday today. I tend to do things on the spur of the moment - Last Wednesday I phoned my brother up to see if he could come over from the South Island for lunch.
Thankfully he found out last night the sailing was delayed till 5.30 am - so we all got a few extra hours sleep.
I travelled into town and picked him up at 8.30 am. I made all the lunch earlier in the week (Mum preferred not to go out for lunch) This took a bit of planning and preparing but it was enjoyed by all.
Its not often we manage to get everyone all together - Mum enjoyed her day.
Brent and James drove my brother back to Wellington to catch the 6.30pm sailing back to Picton - a big day for him as he won't get home till around 10.00pm tonight
He was not at all pleased to hear this, as he could smell that mince and he wanted it now.
