Sunday, 20 July 2008


Christopher had his birthday party yesterday - since he turns nine years old at the beginning of August, we decided that he'd have a better chance of some of his school and Cub friends turning up to a party if we had it right at the end of the school term.

We decided to hold the party at Dell Farm - a farm that's run by Luton Borough Council. a great idea, since schools arrange week long trips there during the course of the year, with various interesting activities, including a walk along the Whipsnade hills, climbing and, of course, tending to the animals there.

One of the unique points, though, is a small network of man-made "caves" underneath one of the fields - it was this that formed the theme to the party. The children absolutely loved it; the man appointed to run the party was charismatic and friendly, and even the most nervous of them - who came with severe reservations about entering the caves at all - had great fun. I'd certainly recommend it, even though I was just a little too big to fit through the narrowest set of tunnels!

The weather held out for much of the afternoon, but even that didn't matter too much, since the party was in a barn, and we were able to shelter there and have a bit of a dance when the rain interrupted our tour of the farm. Unfortunately, though, I forgot my camera (oops!) so the rather fuzzy photo below is the only evidence of the fun we had, shortly after we'd left the caves - with everyone surviving!
