And the story continues................
My family and friends helped me celebrate my 50th Birthday on Saturday night. It was such a nice night with lots of talking, drinking and eating, (So much food!!!!) There were quite a few surprises too.
This cake for one. My beautiful daughter, Nicky and her wonderful boyfriend Ben turned a quite nice Chocolate mud cake into something a little more personal. They had round buttons and chook buttons, a tape measure, bobbins, thread, scissors and a thimble. An idea and suggestion from Ross, my husband had Nicky emailing my sister and together they put together a heap of photos and made a lovely collage of ME!! Not only that he also got her to put my picture and a Birthday greeting in the local paper too.
Yep this is what I got!!! Ross and the kids pooled their pennies and got me this Camera. Hopefully I'll learn how to drive it.
There were lots of other presents too...Jewellery, flowers,beautiful soaps, bottles of wine, and more violet china for my collection. My workmates gave me a very generous gift voucher for my favourite shop in town.
I made my Mum and myself cry by giving her a gift and thanking her for her 50 years of being my Mum.
The very best thing was spending such wonderful night with my husband and children, my Mum, my Sister and her family and my friends. The fire pot was lit, candles were scattered everywhere, IT DIDN'T RAIN and food and drink was plentiful. What more could you ask for really?
