So this is a personal rather than a professional or work based blog for someone who’s always been a massive figure in my life – my Dad!
This week has seen the celebrations of his 60th Birthday culminating in a surprise party for him on the Sunday 25th May with old friends, family, work colleagues from years gone by and of course his special new granddaughter Eloise!
We decided against anything too formal such as a big sit down meal and went for the “everyone meet at the local” scenario – which in the end worked out perfectly and a big thank you goes to the staff of the Brewary Tap pub in Ipswich who helped us organise and looked after a rowdy crowd brilliantly! And a big thanks also to Lucindas brilliant 60th Birthday cake
Also a massive thanks out to all the friends and family who came along to make it such a brilliant occassion – too many names to mention and without you there then the night would not have been the success it was – it was a real surprise for our Dad who was very unsuspecting of anything and he was pretty choked up about it all – so good job done everyone!!
I was on unoffical photography mode and didn’t do too bad considering drinking and a steady hand don’t always work out as you imagine! The D800, 24-70mm F2.8 and SB900 performed almost faultlessly considering for once they were left in mainly an automatic mode 🙂
