Happy Birthday

Last weekend I had yet another mini break in Nottingham.  On this occasion it was to celebrate my brother becoming a certain age.  Hopefully he won’t be looking in on this post so I won’t get into trouble ;-)

This one was and even more of a last minute arrangement than the previous mini break there. We arrived at the hotel late on Saturday afternoon with plenty of time to get ready to go out for the celebratory meal in a local Chinese Restaurant.  The food was delicious and so was the cake, although I only had half a very thin sliver of that.

On Sunday morning we called to visit my brother before setting of to visit Calke Abbey and have lunch before heading home.  In the morning the sunshine was glorious, but unfortunately it had turned to rain as we arrived at Calke Abbey.  This meant that the visit to the walled garden had to be called off.  Oh well, an excuse to visit again…
