We have just returned from a little surprise from Great Grandma in Newcastle. James arranged for most (sadly Claire and family and Jonathan and family could not make it) of the grand children and great grandchildren to be at the Matfen Hall Hotel in the North East as a surprise for Grandma’s 88th Birthday (is actually next week).
Jenny and Justin collected her in the pretext of taking her out for lunch for her birthday – the rest of us were waiting in the conservatory bar for their arrival 🙂
We enjoyed a lovely meal and the children all played together in the room (James has secured a lovely intimate room for us all – named the Print Room) and when we were finished, the staff allowed us to have a phot taken in the central party of the hotel.
A lovely afternoon with fabulous family.
