Carter Party

(not to be confused with) The Truth

Most of the past weekend we’ve been in Swindon, attending the Carter family party. 

This annual event is a way to catch up with other members of the clan – to see what or who’s new, who’s grown, who’s gone, but more importantly to simply enjoy each other’s company.

However, this year was slightly different in also being a charity fundraiser because my cousin, Claire, is currently fighting a heroic battle against cancer.

It was nice to see so many people helping to raise money, but even nicer to see Claire herself looking so obviously upbeat and well, even in the middle of her chemotherapy.

And she still has more hair than me, damn it! 😉

So time was spent eating cakes, buying raffle tickets and eating more cakes – all of which seemed a very civilised way to spend a Saturday.  We should probably do it more often.  Particularly the cakes.
