Given that everyone's in London, it was decided that we'd throw a surprise 80th birthday party for grandmum - two months early. She's up from Cornwall to see Margaret, who in turn is on a rare visit from Rome. And we're here of course. What she didn't know was that John & family had arrived late last night from Devon. So, a crowded house. The menfolk took her out for breakfast in Pinner (never been there before, nice old high street, home of Elton John and all that), while the womenfolk prepared the party. She took it all in her stride and even gave a speech. Hilarious hour or so taking photos of everyone with some wacky software on Emily's mac. Here's Kate looking particularly lovely.
