For their sporting excellence, all were awarded laurel wreaths, even the disturbing looking Hades when we could stop him saying “arise my harpies.”

It was then time for feasting – slow cooked octopus, calamari, hommous, spanikopita, prawns, lamb skewers, Greek (ish) salad, olives…. it was fit for the gods themselves.

As usual, Rachel came through with a most awesome cake – the head of Medusa!

There was then the watching of the original “Clash of the Titans” before even the rest had to rest. Of course, the less said about the waking at 5am the next morning, the better.

Happy 9th birthday Jude!
