And as with all good things that come to an end my big birthday celebrations came to an end this weekend in a big finale. Six of us friends had arranged a lovely meal in a lovely old Felixstowe hotel, The Orwell Hotel. We chose a Saturday night as they have a pianist entertaining the customers which makes it even more special.
With my birthday cards, as I've said before, BFriendM surprised me and Hubby by booking us a room, fabulous present eh.
About a week before two more friends decided to come for dinner too, then unfortunately two days before one of them was ill, so there were seven of us.
The food was excellent. The pianist was really good and happy to take requests. We all had a great evening with lots of laughter and moved from the restaurant to the bar and stayed there till long after the bar closed to anyone but residents...hey two of us were residents so our friends became our guests.
When they all left we just went up to bed, what luxury :-)
The bed was really comfortable and we both slept well. The hotel did an excellent breakfast too.
Before heading home we took a walk along the prom and a quick tour of the Sunday market, then it was home to cook a roast dinner for Daughter, M and the children.
A perfect weekend.
