It was a big mistake going on holiday the week leading up to my birthday, it meant that Ali and Bev could get up to all sorts of tricks. Having a birthday on Aprils fools day has been somewhat entertaining over the years, my two horrid sisiters have even sent me cards wishing their BROTHER a happy birthday. I have had to look for presents in the dustbin.....oh it was awful as a child.
I do believe they got me this year. They hinted that there were big photos of me as a baby on all the roundabouts in Dorchester.....no they would not do that....yeh they would. So I had to go and have a look....nothing. But when I phoned they were adamant that they had put big photos out, Ali even told me how they had made them. Bev then suggested they could have been removed by the council. Did they or didn't they, what ever I think I was had. First time in years they have got me.
We had a party planned for the evening, but I was rather surprised to see that Ali and Bev had got to the venue before me.......and yes they had decorated it with banners and balloons. I almost bust out crying it looked wonderful, until i looked at the banners more closely. Oh no... there were photos of me as a child all over the hall.
This banner was stretched right across the dance floor, nobody could miss it!!! Where did they get those photos from, Ali had cropped everybody else out of the photos so I then had to guess where they were taken - talk about testing my memory!! I couldn't even remember some...what a laugh.
I must share the present that Ali gave me, I have been wanting one for ages and keep going on about it in the warehouse.
an apple and a ipad notebook
What is she like!?
I had a queue for my birthday cake, everyone wanted a slice...
Vicky had made it for me, where did she find the time? A moist chocolate cake, edged in Chocolate fingers with milk and white chocolate maltesers....ooooooh it was yummmy. And yes that is little Syd - she was first in the queue for the cake!
A big thank you to everyone that took the time to leave a birthday comment - it has been wonderful reading all of them. I had a totally fantastic day and I have some super memories and certainly will not forget my 40th Birthday.
Lots of love
