And I had so much fun.
This was easily the best birthday party I have ever had, I had so many visitors and so many gifts, it was simply spectacular!
I received so many awesome gifts!!!
My Glugster gave me my divine new camera (which you already know); my mommy and daddy darling gave me a multi-coloured feather handbag stuffed with socks; Tamara gave me a new cake holder, a bag of divine chocolate covered nougat and a necklace; my Sister B and her men gave me potholders emblazoned with cupcakes and a cupcake kitchen timer; Sister C and her significant other gave me cash; my friend Charlene and her hubby gave me scrapbooking goodies, a ring and matching bracelet, a feathered fan and a funky pen!!! Glugster’s sister gave me two coffee cups with cupcakes on them and his folks gave me jewel-toned candles in a wooden tray. My tjommie Sweets gave me a cupcake shaped cookie-jar filled with sweets and a candle and a pencil from “Kaalkop”!! Phillygirl and her other half brought me an exquisite bouquet of flowers; my knucklehead’s godmother gave me handbag bling and a candle that looks like a cupcake; my friend Debbie and her kidlets gave me a gawjiss tie-dyed skirt decorated with tiny bells and mirrors (which I wore all day Monday); Louisa gave me mango bubble bath and I got smellies from Glugster’s bestest best friend and his family. And my Glugster organised with my special blog friend Dawn in New Jersey- who is an expat and has family in Joburg- to get me an exquisite ring from Dawn and DDTF and their son Ross… it was such an awesome surprise!
Ooh I hope that’s everyone… I was going to wait till everyone had gone home before I opened my gifts, (as etiquette dictates) and keep a list of who gave me what so I do hope I didn’t mix anything up… but I was hopelessly outvoted by my guests, so I opened them all with everyone watching!
We braaid, and I made a couple of salads, and we partied up a storm I tell you! I also baked strawberry cupcakes with butter icing and a strawberry jelly sweet on top, and peanut butter cupcakes with caramel and silver balls on. I bought a vanilla sponge cake which I then iced and put two candles on top- a 3 and a 5!
My family and the Glugster’s family met for the first time today too. Glugs’ sister J is a muso, and when she started playing guitar da Bruvva and sister B were very quick to join in the singing. By the end of the day you’d think we’d known each other for years!
Bunnies, it was quite simply- without a doubt- the most amazing birthday I have every had!
