March is a busy period for the Cleary family as we have celebrations coming out of our ears!
It starts with birthday celebrations for my Father-in-law then followed quickly by birthday celebrations for my youngest son Joshua, my cousin’s pair of twins Liam & Tom, cousin Julie, my Dad, my eldest son Drew and then finishing off with 2 of my other cousins Kay and Jackie. As well as the birthday celebrations listed we were invited to a surprise 50th birthday party on Friday to help celebrate our friend David reaching the ripe old age of 50.
David’s birthday celebrations were held at The Pavilion Bar and Bistro in Bury and a large gathering of their family and closest friends were invited for a ‘black tie dress code’ celebration. David was unaware of what was happening as Bev had created a fake invitation to another celebration at The Pavilion. For the sit down meal Michele had squid, followed by chicken and then the cheese board where I had pate followed by lamb and then a large slice of jaffa cake.
The conversation was great as we were able to catch up with some people we had not seen in a long time. As well as the obligatory dancing we were all entertained by a magician, a male solo singer and the great display of fireworks at the end of the meal.
Michele was the designated driver for the evening and we arrived home at about 01:15. Thanks Beverley for the invite and I’m sure David appreciated all of your efforts.
Continuing along the celebrations theme for the weekend it was Mothers Day today and we were up early and across the road at my mother-in-laws for a couple of hours before heading off over to Timperley to catch up with my mum. As well as celebrating Mothers Day with mum we were also catching up with my Dad and Drew for their birthday celebrations we missed earlier in the week.
Then it was back home to watch the celebrations unfold at Old Trafford as Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 to maintain their 3rd place in the Premier League.
Now settling down for the night in rediness for returning to work tomorrow.
