It was, as I said yesterday, Alicia's birthday on Friday 23rd and it seems she is having one of those never ending birthday parties. Dinner with girlfriends on Thursday night, presents from family and adoring husband on Friday, dinner with more friends on Saturday night, lunch on Sunday, always one for doing things bigger than big our girl.
Here my mum, Ashleigh, Danielle and Paul all get in on the act. Paul's parents took everyone out for lunch at the restaurant/reception centre they own. We had the place to ourselves and it was a lovely lunch out. The Preston Manor has been open for about 18 months now. They built it from an old farm house moved onto the property, along with the chapel and the tiny chapel/office. It is so popular, only holds about 90 maximum seated in the chapel and a little over 100 in the restaurant. The inside of the chapel is absolutely gorgeous, leadlight windows and views over the valley. It is becoming an extremely popular place to have weddings and receptions.
