Doing the job he does, there was a sea theme to the celebrations.
We hid in the back garden and jumped out to surprise the birthday boy when he arrived. He acted surprised, although the three helium-filled fish floating in the middle of the lawn might have given the game away a little!
His fiancée Jaye, his sister Charlotte Kate, and his mother Joanna pulled out all the stops; great food, ample drink and a lovely nautically-themed birthday cake.
It was so nice to see everyone in the flesh. It had been 7 months since I had last seen everyone - including my Mum and Dad who had been shielding.
It was an afternoon filled with laughter, lots of sanitising hand gel, and much hand washing. Very 2020.
