Last week we began with a drive to Skegness again - this time though we were there to celebrate mum and dads 50th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, Tony and Joyce were unable to make it, so me, Buffy, Chris, Emma and Aunty Brenda all made our way there from Manchester.

|Don't do it mum!|
The night was over all too quickly though and we headed home full of food and a few beers for a good nights sleep. We all got together again on Sunday for a spot of brunch and a chat before we had to head back to Manchester for work on Monday - we did manage to squeeze in a Skype call with Gareth and Tracey in Australia before we left though - it was lovely to see and speak with them both for the anniversary.
|50 years together!|
|All of us!|

She has been talking about getting a slow cooker for the last few months, so she was really happy when she opened her present from Mum and dad to find one just like she wanted inside! Thanks mum and dad!! She also spent most of the morning of her birthday getting her hair cut and styled with a lovely tint of red (which shines a bit orange in the sunlight) which was my present alongside the bicycle bell I also bought her, which she now uses to call me to make her tea or dinner!! I am now her slave!! Buffy was also really happy when Chris and the kids got home with flowers, cider, cards and a cake with re-lighting candles for her birthday - I know she was genuinely touched by the presents and cards from Abbie, Peter and Joe!!
|Bugar - the candles are still lit!|
|Wet and windy moors|
|Our room was named 'Riding Wood'...fnaar fnaar!!|
The evening was spent enjoying a couple of cold beers and a huge meal in the friendly little bar just under our room. A lovely and free stay in a lovely countryside pub and hotel.
It was during the night that I had a very strange dream......
Ant and Dec were on TV but Ant went missing for a few weeks meaning that Dec carried on by himself. After a few weeks Ants mutilated remains were found in a cave - where he he'd been dragged, killed and eventually eaten by cannibals who lived there. At the same time all this was happening I discovered that my dad (not my real dad, but someone who was my dad in the dream) had a different surname from me.
Dec then went to the place where Ants body was discovered and left a full pint of beer as a memorial to his dead friend - Dec then went skipping off happily with Steven Mulhern who was now his new TV partner - Ant was already forgotten. Things then got weird when Dec and Steven Mulhern were talking and discovered that Dec had the same surname as my dream dad and was therefore my brother. That's when I woke up......Just a normal weird dream for me!
