Seated out the back, in the sun
Enough people showed to afford me a smile!
Just one fine example
Clem plays hide & seek with her shadow and some water biscuits!

Funny bones of Richie and Lynn
We stayed rooted to our al fresco spot for long enough to decide that we should head over to Victoria Park for the afternoon, to carry on the eating and drinking. We got in some food, blankets, drinks and a football. All set. Picnic.
Same sun, new location.
Natalie, Sandra, Simone and Sarah joined us for the picnic.
It was great to see Kev for the first time in a while too.
Ed missed brekkie to get a new tattoo, but made it over for the picnic.
Joss treated me to a sausage roll from the wonderful Ginger Pig
As the clouds gathered and threat of rain appeared greater, we retreated to the Crown pub over the road. By this time, some of us needed to eat again(!) Others just needed to drink.
From the pub it was time to move on to the second birthday celebration of the day. Mr Bond was celebrating at the Charles Lamb pub in Islington that evening. The weather held, more people gathered and it was a great evening. (And we liked the pub more, as unbeknown to Rich, they had bought two of his screenprints and had them proudly framed and hung on the wall).

Ross cat naps as Harrie, Doug & Aimee lap it up.
Lynn and Jimmy share a joke (in front of a glimpse of Richie's print)
A great daytime celebration for me - thanks all for sharing it - and a fun evening for Bond. A great day all in all.
