Today we finally managed to pull off a surprise 70th Birthday Party for Dad. It has taken a bit of organising and again Beth has done us proud, not once letting slip what the plans were!!
We arranged for people to go to the Conservative Club in North Watford for 2.30pm Mum and Dad were arriving around 3. By the time we arrived the food was laid out. We put the balloons and banners up. We put the cake on the table and arranged the candles and waited for the arrival of the victim.
When they arrived dad was surprised, he was pleased to see his friends from work, some had travelled from Norfolk to be there.A lot of us had travelled from Welwyn Garden City!! Our cousins and dads brother and sister in law were there. Unfortunately we had a few people unable to make it, Uncle Roy and Auntie peg. Roy is in hospital and Auntie Peg has been struck down with the sickness bug. Karen and Graham, Andy and Pete, all struck down by the same bug!!
We had a very nice afternoon with lots more photos, but because Blogger is playing silly bloggers I can only upload one photo per post!!

What fun! We did this for my mum a few years ago, and the look on her face was priceless :) Hope you are well. I'm just off to get weighed - after the weekend I just had, erm, we'll see eh?
