Due to living abroad and now with the Covid virus, Peter and I won't be around for our first grandchild's 1st birthday.
Peter returns to Dubai on Friday and we have no idea when he'll next make it over to the UK, we were apart for 4 months in the first wave. I am however flying out to Dubai the following week to renew my visa and as I am required to quarantine when I arrive back in the UK, I won't be able to visit them until after the actual birthday.
I love Alice in Wonderland, especially the Mad Hatters Tea Party, so decided an 'unbirthday' was just the way to go.
Peter cut me some wood from the shed we've been repairing and I found some card and made sign posts, tea cups and hung playing cards from trees. The food was all heart shaped.
Whilst Peter occupied child 2 and 2a, I set up the garden ready for the surprise.
We had a lovely afternoon, most of the food was smashed, but what wasn't eaten the dog hoovered up.
