We all like to be remembered on our birthdays, don’t we, so I was thrilled when my daughter Nicky suggested we meet up for Sunday Lunch at the rather grandly named Orlando Country Club for a birthday lunch. While we waited inside for her to arrive we watched the many keen golfers taking advantage of the Driving Range with their buckets of balls.

Sadly the grand-daughters couldn’t make lunch, they were away with their Dad taking part in one of their horse events. So rather than wait weeks till everyone in the family were free, Nicky decided it was better to meet now, close to my birthday. She came bearing gifts, flowers from her garden and an interesting wrapped parcel.
I had to laugh at the birthday card, aren’t all daughters fearful of turning into their Mother? And inside the box was a Led Candle Lantern, which will be just the thing for the caravan, while we sit outside on warm summer evenings .
For my birthday
We enjoyed a lovely meal in the busy restaurant, fish for us and Eggs Benedict for Nicky.

There were goodies for Nicky to take home too. A large block of parmesan cheese purchased on our recent trip away, and a big bundle of freshly picked asparagus from the asparagus farm when we visited yesterday. Nicky enjoys cooking so these will be put to good use, I’m sure. It was so nice to catch up with her, and see how she is getting on, as she is undergoing health issues at the moment. With some months of treatment scheduled, it will not be an easy time for her and her family.
