It was Lauren’s birthday a few weeks ago while she was on fifth year work placements from Vet School.
As she is home for a week before heading off to New Zealand on a three week placement, we had a little family get together at the cottage. Myself, Hilary, Lauren, Jonny and Rachel, Helen and Hugh; the five Dorking and two pheasant chicks (more another day!) wisely opted to stay in the garden as Lauren has a fear of hens? Just remember that one next time you go to your local Veterinary Surgeon….!! As it was the first time we had seen Lauren since her birthday we baked a cake which Helen, in her own inimitable style, decorated. A pastoral depiction of green fields and a wealth of animals, which Lauren thought was hilarious!
I have to confess that I ate the duck, couldn’t help myself…….
