Another birthday

Today is Alec's birthday. Now, he is very peculiar about birthdays and does not like presents, cards or anything that involves being an object or entity. Some years I have bought him something and I had to take it back to the shop. Others he got nothing and it was when he was happiest. This year I decided to make a meal including three of his favourites ingredients: duck, courgettes and chocolate cake. The result was OK but I tend to panic preparing a big 3 course meal and today was no exception. I'm glad it's all over now. Despite the food we've had a lovely evening as Caroline and Jonathan have stayed for dinner and as usual they are great company. No photos of the meal but this is one of my favourite pictures of the Summer:
