So at about 11am I pulled the plug. We sent a text around saying that we had to cancel and we were sorry but I just wouldn't enjoy it if I was worrying about rain. It did rain- enough that it wouldn't be nice to sit outside- not enough to fill the tanks though, but people just came anyway- saying well we wanted to pop in and see you anyway and at least say happy birthday - so what was going to be a big lunch turned into a smaller one and our friends who had came from Sydney made our deck look gorgeous and moved all the tables up and made one huge table- where we ended up having lunch for 20 instead. So maybe it was even better than a big party?
I ordered posies from some beautiful gardeners and we planned to have a loooong white table with lots of flowers in the winter sun and pizza for the kids.
But instead we had a big square table and lots of flowers and it was really nice.
Romi is scared of one of our friends- it cracks us up because he is the least scary person - but he has a loud voice and for some reason she freaks out - have you ever had that? where your child just freaks out over one of your mates?This is Neil!! Chef!! have I ever even shown him on my blog??? look at the horror on Romis face- Andy is nearby!
Three days later on my actual birthday we went to Urunga and walked the boardwalk - our friends from Sydney were up and we ate fish and chips. So lucky to live here.
