Its NSNMOTB’s Birthday!!!

Yup!!! My Bestest Best Friend is having a birthday!!!

Get Your Own!

We had a fantabulous party last night for Gen’s birthday- lamb on the spit and some awesome salads as only NSNMOTB knows how to make!
Aaaaaand then I made quite an entrance bunnies…! I know I like to be the centre of attention- but not this way!!!
On arriving, I had my bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon in one hand and my wine glass in the other hand and made my way outside to find a corkscrew… completely not seeing the step leading from the covered verandah to the brick-paved pool area.
I went down FAST- trying to keep my feet as I stumbled, going down on my left knee, HARD, scraping my hand on the bricks and smashing my wine glass!
I somehow managed to get myself onto my backside from there- without injuring my bottle of wine in the least- and promptly sat in a puddle on the bricks that the kids had made while swimming! I had a damp backside pretty much all night!
And now my knee is swollen and I’m limping and feeling sorry for myself- though it’s not blue yet…
