Happy 80th Birthday Dad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)))))))))))))

So....... If you have been wondering what I have been up to in Norfolk ......... the secret is out......... The entire Coulson clan comprising of all it's generations has gathered ........ to a mega big old farm house that can just about sleep us all ...... out here in the Norfolk Broads ........ family members have flown in from South Africa and America and driven from London, Wales and all across the UK to be here on the big day............. Yeah ........ My dad is 80 today !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So we are all here celebrating :-))))))))))))))))))

This magnificent plate above was made by my friend the ceramicist Ian McDonald. It was the fantastic center piece to the celebrations and in this shot just about to come into its own :-)))) ........ so thanks to you Ian for making it ........ everyone loved it ........ especially my Dad. :-))))))))))))))))

Its been a fantastic few days with my family....... boating, canoeing, fishing, karting, horse riding and just walking on the beach ............ even if journalism in Britain is being convulsed and collapsed ......... right now I can't even get on the net without driving 15 miles ................. so I can vaguely forget about the journalistic trauma....... well sort of ........ then fly on back to the US ....... and meantime let Matt do the blogging for me :-))) ........ Oh and thanks very much for doing that Matt :-))))))))

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS............ You can commission Ian ( ian2macdonald@yahoo.co.uk ) to make you one of his signature celebration plates for a special occasion .......... he works with The Standpoint Gallery London ........... after all its not that often you can acquire something of beauty that has such meaning and significance to your whole family ......... :-)))))))))
