Happy Birthday, Ben

It’s Ben’s 3rd birthday today, September 2nd. He’s Dave & Kerry’s older boy and the middle of our 3 grandsons. We went up to Gateshead to visit the family for a weekend early in August. It was actually warm and sunny! Kerry’s parents very nobly moved out of their home for the weekend so that we could enjoy more space together. They also have a garden.

On the Saturday we went to see Prudhoe Castle, parts of which date back to the 13th Century. It was built to keep the Scots at bay, like several castles up there. The name is apparently pronounced ‘Prudder’. We were the first to arrive and enjoyed a very relaxed look around followed by sandwiches on the grass outside the walls.
