Best girlfriends(all avid scrappers ) pouring over one of the albums
The fun !!!
Whew 50 years old !!! I am incredibly blessed to turn fifty & still feel 20... okay maybe more 40 lol.
I am not a front row person I like being in the background so as the time was approaching my family kept saying lets have a party, dinner etc etc I kept saying no no NO. Eventually DH said lets have a braai with my good friend & her hubby - yes ok thats fine. This girlfriend & I share lots of years friendship & confidences. I thought no more about it.
So on Saturday as I was on laundry duty, off I went & the family asked me to do odd things in the morning & my laundry staff even checked up on me doing things but I didn't think anything about it.
DH decided he needed the car I had & would fetch me, nothing unusual in that except I was stuck at the laundry..... no big deal. DH phoned & said he's on his way & we would go for coffee on the way home ( strange since its rugby afternoon !!!) anyway but he had forgotten his wallet off we went home. I did say babe why are there balloons on the gate & door, oh why are there cars in our drive way ?????? and walked straight into a surprize birthday party..... WOW its wonderful & the family had worked hard & it was wonderful, good friends, good braai, washed down with good wine & fresh strawberries, cream & cake.
It was a lovely birthday surprize & it was so appreciated. My DD has been making me a scrapping album for my birthday which I knew about but had not seen, nor seen her do any either. Well its 2 albums & they are Incredible with my family in SA & NZ contributing to so its just Incredible. I will post pics as soon as I can. To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement.
To top it off I had a call from Jen & Adrian in NZ (who knew all about this !!) & that was so special.
So its wonderful to turn 50 & I am so glad to be alive, to have a fantastic family & friends.
"Happy Birthday to me ".
