Or birthday part two. Just popping in to thank everyone who made Saturday night so special. Wow this whole 40th birthday thing has been a blast, might turn 40 again next year. On Saturday a friend, Tan, put on a gorgeous dinner party for me and 8 of my closest Naracoorte friends, 10 counting the chef and waiter (mine and Tanya's husbands, the only two males allowed) I had planned to do something simple at home but Tan and her helpers (Donna and Sharon, Daz and Brendan) stepped in and did the most beautiful party with tea candles scattered around her pergola, fairy lights,candles on the table and even a flower arrangement in the centre, it all looked so beautiful I got a little bit sniffy. I wasn't allowed to see before hand so it was a complete surprise to me. I must say the meal was beautiful and Darren has missed his calling as a chef, after nibbles we had creamy garlic king prawns, then for main it was warm marinated chicken salad and dessert, compliments of Sharon who was also the cocktail making queen for the night, was a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake,so delicious, then we had Christina's range of fine sweet delights. Lucky we did dancing and karaoke afterwards otherwise I would have had to roll home I was that full. There are photos but I haven't had time to put them on the computer yet. After my great weekend a couple of weeks ago with my old group of mates from back home and Saturday nights fantastic evening I feel like it keeps going on and on and my actual birthday wasn't until today and then I get to go home in a couple of weeks and share with my family, so much fun.
Will put photos up tomorrow.
Oh and I forgot to thank everyone for the gorgeous gifts, think I must be the luckiest girl in town.
