Yesterday saw the end of the official 3-day festivities to celebrate Jayne's 9th birthday.
Saturday was her birthday party to which invites went out to 20 plus little girls and boys. In the end, 20 turned up which meant that Jayne had a shed-load of pressies! Fortunately, I was at work. You can imagine how cut up I was about missing that bun-fest! Even Bethen managed to avoid it by making arrangements to go ice-skating with one of her friends.
Sunday, the Grandparents turned up for Sunday lunch, - of course, carrying more presents! It was a full meal of home-made tomato soup, roast lunch and pavlova to follow, rounded off with cheese and port (my father and I finished off the Stilton, - one of the smelliest and tastiest of the blue cheeses). I, of course, had got some beer in for Dad and myself. Badger Champion Ale to start off with, concluding with a shared bottle of McEwan's Champion Ale, - which at 7.3% is almost as strong as wine. It was a lovely family occasion.
Finally, it was Jayne's actual birthday yesterday, which turned out to be the quietest of the three. All in all, I think she had a great time.
Tomorrow, 11th January, I am hoping to publish a first and unique blog. Needless to say, I am very excited and look forward to the post with great anticipation. I hope it will be as fulfilling for you, dear reader, as I know it should be for me.
I noticed today that Califonia Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has had an accident on his motorcycle. What is it with Republicans and 2-wheeled vehicles? Clearly they are not balanced!
Finally, on Saturday, me and the kids are across to my Dad's to try and set up his PC for broadband. Could be fun!
