Mark's 50th birthday

The day started with a lie-in for Mark and Jack.

The table was set for breakfast, with cards and presents laid out and ready to be opened. Jack lay in his favourite spot under the dining table to supervise proceedings.

And then it was off to DFO for Mark to spend his birthday money at the end of financial year sales... he got some great bargains!

Then it was time for cake: Jay tried something new. Strawberries and cream cake covered in fresh strawberries and strawberry intense Lindt chocolate... delicious.

We took Jack to the oncologist for his monthly check up and restock of his chemotherapy pills and his test results came back great. The oncologist was really pleased with how he is looking and his general health and demeanor.

Back home and it was time for Jay to start cooking Mark a soecial birthday dinner. Entree was feta puffs wirh zesty tomato salad, while for the main course we had grilled haloumi on hash browns, baked broccoli, and lamb stew with chilli gremolata. A big dessert was planned too but as we were all full and it was getting kate we decided to give it a miss and have it Sunday instead.
