Party preparations is what.
Tomorrow night we’re celebrating the Glugster’s birthday just passed with a costume slash Halloween party.
It looks like we’ll have a pretty decent turn-out too (and me mailing everyone a few times may help to make sure they remember).
We’ve organised luvverly nibbly things and I’m REALLY looking forward to it! I never need an excuse to dress up in a costume of some kind and my Glugs and I took quite a while to decide what we would wear. And now the three of us have our costumes- I went and rented some stuff yesterday- and I’m while not saying anything now, you’ll see pictures next week of course!
We’re arranging for a security guard for the people who end up parking outside (as there’s not enough space inside), and we’ve arranged for the maid to come back on Sunday and help clean up (South Africa definitely has its perks).
I’m going today to get balloons and such with which to decorate the house, and I’m going to see what I can do about organising extra seating (we still had a dining room suite the last time we had a party).
Ooh, and I’m going to bake cupcakes and decorate them to look like spiders and eyeballs and such as well!
So- if you’re coming and didn’t get the email with the directions in it, let me know and I’ll send them again- and if you could bring a chair with you that’d be fabulous… and of course, don’t forget your costume and your preferred liquid poison!
Thats it for my Friday… the Knucklehead starts exams next week, so he has already started asking if he could go out tonight. I inflicted my parental status on him and said no. Whilst he insists he’s been studying flat out for the last couple of weeks, I know he was up till after 10PM last night PAINTING HIS CHAOS SPACE MARINES GENERAL!!! It looks incredible, but he did no revision! Then on Tuesday he left his school bag AT SCHOOL, and since he takes all his books to school every single day (and yes, I have tried to get him to stop doing that) that meant there was no revision done.
I could go on, but then I’m just going to start worrying about him passing again…
And now I just got a phone call from the school to please come and fetch him as he’s throwing up all over the place!
Have a groovy weekend bunnies, and for those I’m seeing tomorrow- I can’t wait!!
