Jo and I took Ruby to her friend SJ’s 5th birthday party today. It was amazing!

Yet another photo of Ruby. We were enjoying a café break in that most salubrious of drinking establishments, ASDA. The coffee was actually rather nice, and everything was good value, so no complaints from this Yorkshireman.
I’d rather come to the ASDA café than drink in Starbucks
