Sal hits the big 40!

This update is a bit late, given that we went to London to celebrate with Sal in mid may, but hey, this is my blog and I'll post when I want to :-)

We had a wonderful weekend - arrived Friday daytime. Met other friends for lunch on Saturday. Mags and Mano arrived from Brussels and we all enjoyed a catered meal at the house on Saturday evening, which was handy, as it meant we didn't need babysitters.

The main event was a party for friends and family on Sunday at London Zoo - there was a lovely function room with outside private courtyard and garden. The weather was beautiful - the only nice weekend so far that summer. The food and service was perfect, all the kids had room to play in the garden. Some of the kids ended up in the tree. I particularly appreciated the fact that Mags and Mano took care of Markus and Patrick for a bit, so that I could enjoy my lunch in peace!
