I celebrated my 42nd birthday today in true Peloton style – with a backdrop of food and drink.

Today’s lunch was a hearty helping of individual Toad-in-the-Hole with mash, peas and onion gravy – created, cooked and served by the United Kingdom’s most Southerly Northerners (Ian and his son, Ben). I enjoyed a cheeky little bottle of beer to wash it all down, too.

It’s just gone 3pm, which any office birthday veteran knows as ‘cake o’clock’. Jo Thomas home-baked a delicious Lumberjack cake at my request and it was served with a refreshing mug of builders’ tea.

Thanks to all involved in making today feel like my birthday. You’re all very kind :0)
