It was my birthday last Saturday (22nd), a special one, lets just say it had an ´0´on it!
Daniel, Shine and the two girls flew over on Thursday, as did Mum (Joyce) and sister in law, Jo.
Rebecca and Antoni joined us on Friday and we had a lovely family meal.
It was so lovely to all be together and of course catch up with everyone´s news.
Leocia and Maia have certainly grown, as they do, and Leocia is talking quite clearly now whilst Maia is quite content to sit and watch then mimic.
Luckily Saturday dawned bright and sunny (we had been expecting rain) and after a hearty breakfast I was treated to some wonderful and thoughtful gifts. I was also presented with some really beautiful bouquets.
Everyone went off to set up for the party in the restaurant and Chris went to set his gear up and he was playing for us all.
When I arrived a few hours later they had transformed the restaurant with purple and white balloons, streamers and pom poms, Rebecca had worked so hard to make it perfect. Antoni had also created and made on his 3D printer beautiful napkin holders in the shape of cats.
All told about 30 of us ate, danced, chatted, tapped our feet and generally had a wonderful time.
I was also presented with a beautifully decorated chocolate cake, both gluten free and vegan. It was divine.
Chris played for over 3 hours, love him, and was brilliant, he also got me up for 3 songs, but no one left lol!
We carried on with the party at home with some of the guests which lasted till about 2am,
I was treated like a princess, spoilt, hugged and loved and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. What a wonderful day.
Then all too swiftly it was over
Daniel, Shine and the girls left late Sunday night
Mum and Jo stayed till late Tuesday
then it was just the clearing up to do!!
All so totally worth it
