50th Birthdayparty

On Saturday we celebrated our 50th birthday party together.
We had many friends and family who came to celebrate with us and helped us make it a special night. This was a great time to catch up with people we don't get to see very often as well as those we see regularly. We got this group photo (although I don't think this was everyone).  
Despite the weather forecast, which didn't sound too good, we managed to have a fire and the weather stayed fairly good all night. Karen and Kylie were kind enough to take lots of photos
The Girls organised a suprise trip to Kangaroo Island with the help of both friends and family.
Thanks to all those who put in for the present and for making the night so special

My 50th Birthday Tea

My birthday was really great!
 I woke up and my mum made yummy scones with jam and cream for breakfast. After a lovely relaxed breakfast with Mum, Dad, Helena and Gavin and a quick tidy up Mum and I went to Ikea for a browse and a cup of coffee.
Afterwards we met Helena, Jo and Levin for lunch in Prospect we all had a very lovely lunch and enjoyed getting together although at times like this we sometimes wish Els could be there as well .
By the time we got back to Mum+ Dads , Mum was ready for a rest and I decided to get some fuel for heading home later, then read for a while till dad got up Rang Els in Holland and had a good chat ,than a quick bit off shopping before heading to Karen+Bennys for tea.
where we cooked lasagna together and Karen made apple berry crumble for desert
We had a lovely meal and great fun hanging out together wish you were there AJ
Next time we need you there for our dressing-gown party
