Today was our wedding anniversary, 46 years in fact. The grandchildren had been staying with us until yesterday evening when they were collected by their parents who were staying at a holiday cottage near Torrington. As it happens, today is also the day for the clocks to go back ready for the winter so we had an extra hour as well. We had booked for Sunday lunch at the Rydon, but early this morning we had a phone call to say that the Rydon would be closed today due to illness. So we had to decide what to do. In the end we managed to book for all of us at the New Inn at Kilkhampton. We were lucky to get in at such short notice.

Hariet and Matthew were also invited so we finished up with nine including the children. Because of the late booking we had to sit at separate tobles, next to each other. The food was really good and everyone enjoyed it. I suspect that Pam and I will be going there again for a lunch on a Sunday. Afterwards we all went to St Pauls Drive as a final gathering. It is not often that all nine of can get together. We had a cake to mark the occasion and several photos were taken. I include one which Dan took using a timer on his phone. I wonder if we will all ever be together again. We also had several cards which was very pleasing. All in all a good day.
