Thoughts from April 2008

happy birthday suve

the innocent AGM

This is Suve. Suve (which he says is like 'soup' with a 'v') came along to our AGM on Saturday, even though it was his birthday. We thought this was pretty impressive, so we asked Gina to bake him a cake. Suve approved of the cake, and says that it made it home to York in one piece. He'd also like to point out that he is wearing his birthday jumper in this photo.


we are nine

Today is our ninth birthday.


We've been selling our drinks for exactly nine years now so to celebrate, we had a special birthday lunch.

Daisy organised an indoor picnic, complete with hampers, rugs and mini sausage rolls


Champagne was quaffed


What ho

Crisps were shared


Mmm crisps...

There was birthday cake


Our birthday cake was made by Gina (she made our very first birthday cake back in the day)

A birthday raffle, with prizes ranging from hammocks and posh vouchers to a box of wine.


Some more cake


A birthday band


And of course, a speech.


We had a lovely time and lots of cake.

Some people managed to contain their birthday excitement better than others.


new friends

the innocent AGM

Generally we try not to be too soppy, but this made us smile. Will and Katie made friends at the AGM, and then went to the pub afterwards. Here are their golden bottles enjoying a quiet moment together.

Thanks for sending in that photo Will.


some nice photos of the AGM


Say hello to everyone


Arguing over who gets the biggest cupcake


Biscuits (perfect shape for dunking in tea)


Alice's wonderful cupcakes. Thanks Alice.


A close up of Gina's cake.


Our favourite tea. We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Taylor's of Harrogate for the tea and biscuits. They went down an absolute storm.

Have a look in our AGM flickr group for even more pictures of the big day.
