TODAY WE HAVE A 90th BIRTHDAY SURPRISE VISIT AND THEN ON TO TEA’S IN THE CASTLE
AUNT JOAN 90th BIRTHDAY SURPRISE VISIT TO MILLINGTON ALM HOUSES
Aunt joan is not a relative of ours but we were asked if we could at short notice fit in this special visit on this ladies 90th Birthday, Aunt Joan was having a private birthday party laid on by friends, neighbours and family, to be invited along was in deed a great honour for both of us and the look on her face when we turned up was a real treat. We took her a birthday card and some flowers.
I have to say she did not look her age and she was more mobile than I am, what a lvely lady she is and we sat down and had some food with her and her guests, many we knew so it was like being with family for us.
Pictured above Aunt Joan is seen at the table reading a birthday card that the lady standing next to her has just brought.
We had a great time but had to leave so that we could get our Teas in The Castle started at 2pm.
OUR WEEKLY TEAS IN THE CASTLE
Today seeing it is Wednesday is our Teas in The Castle day and seeing that the Castle is still running on winter opening hours we need to start at 2pm instead of the normal summer session at 3pm. This is because the Castle closes at 4pm and we do not want to rush any visitors with their cup of tea and biscuits. We just ask whoever is walking around the Castle at the time if they would like to join the Mayor for a cup of tea and go from there. We talk about the history of the town where they have visited, where they come from and answer any questions that they may have.
The person talking to me in the picture above is writing an historical piece of work about a military unit that was caught up in the Indian uprising, he was also interested in the castle and its history so we had loads to talk about.
Time stands still for no man and today was just like that saying as it was time to pack up and leave before the gates were closed and we would be locked in. But another good session of teas in the castle, only have one more before our Mayoral year ends so next week will be a rather sad and at the same time a special event.
WHAT IS THE MAYOR GOING TO DO NEXT? KEEP LOOKING AT THIS BLOG AND FIND OUT SOON
