Before we wed, my husband and his father attended Wimbledon in lieu of a bachelor party. Recreated the magic for his birthday for the inaugural B cup.
Some fun facts about Wimbledon- each year 200, 000 glasses of Pimm’s are served
and 190,000 sandwiches
and 28,000 kg (112,000 punnets) of English strawberries
and 32,000 portions of fish and chips
Also players at Wimbledon must dress predominantly in white. The referee determines on the day whether players meet dress requirements.
Nephew W was very cute and organised a formal awards presentation. He awarded himself the best junior player, his 6 year old brother, ‘best and fairest’, and his 5 year old brother a ‘just because’ award. But my sister in law was the overall winner! She was also the only one who was dressed predominantly in white.
It has become a family tradition to make Angel Food cake for birthday celebrations. I was saved by the blog this year- despite misplacing the recipe book, I remembered I had photographed the recipe last year when I made the cake.
