Lovely Leena organised a surprise birthday meal for James on saturday, as he's all booked up before his birthday. So we grabbed a car full of people, headed down to Chippenham and met up with Mike and Amber. We were slightly concerned that James would spot either our car (which he's travelled in a lot) or Mike's classic beetle. Fortunately he didn't as the fact that he was able to scan the room and still miss us all shows he really wasn't expecting it :)

It was really good that so many of us had got there on time and were waiting in the pub for him, I really wish I'd managed to catch his expression on camera.

The food wasn't great quality, but it was cheap hot and tasted good, which was what we needed. Then we came back to drink Dr Pepper and have Warren run around the flat looking at swords and cosplay with a face like a toddler in a toystore. It was good to catch up with Mike and Amber again - hope you managed to get home okay!

Cosplay ball progess happens, probably not as fast as I need it too, but I'm not too worried. I'm not doing turn up cuffs again, especially with a pattern that doesn't tell you how to finish them off properly.

Went to Cornwall last weekend, managed to avoide most of the bad weather. Eden project was pretty cool, but lacked as much botanical information as I thought it should have. I only found one lizard too. Also

Oh those otters are cute! Well captured =^_^=

Glad you guys could make it on Saturday =^_^=
I'm glad that it turned out to be a surprise for the birthday boy - I really thought he'd suspect something so when we were standing next to you and I had to prod him to point out that everyone was there, it was quite amusing. Bless.

Yeah it was lovely. It wouldn't have been nearly as good if we'd all been slack and got there after you.

Well maybe not - if you guys had turned up after us as I'd planned, he would have been like a kid who is getting presents one after the other, and just as he thinks he's got his last one, another one appears for him. Sweet.

Kitten HAET CUFFS. Especially turn-up ones. I cheat every damn time (guilty secret) but some day I'll learn how to do them properly...
