Bruno's parents and his sister made the epic drive from Glasgow, which due to the traffic on the start of half term holidays took 7 hours.
Good old Rachel - always comes up with a good cake!
Assunta (Bruno's Mum) and my sister Bethan
Not a great photo I admit - Nell, you're looking a bit startled there!

Rhiannon posing with Bethan's birthday present - the complete works of Shakespeare.
My present was on it's way - a Marilyn Manson hoody (whoever she is).
Talk about one extreme to the other!
Ah lovely pic: Nia, Rob, Rhiannon, Nel & Iona
Dad Bruno giving his speech - he'd even prepared notes!
I did take a load more photos - which didn't come out as they were all blurred, as I had the camera on the wrong setting, duh. Of course, as I was taking all the pics, I'm not on any of them!
We all had a lovely night, thanks to Rachel for organising it. No mean feat when we all live in different parts of the country. It was lovely to see everybody. Rhiannon is having another party this weekend for all her friends - a Halloween party. Rachel & Bruno will be on duty guarding the house!
