My 50th birthday fell last Friday, I was born on a Friday and went home to the house mum and dad still live in.
Anyways, I decided to throw a big party. I've never had one before and it seemed like a good thing to do.
I got the local Indian restaurant to cater, Caitlin made three black forest cakes (regular, vegan, gluten free), I asked for donations to a tree planting group instead of gifts, there was a "selfie booth", Liam had a cool soundtrack playing and I had an African drumming workshop for entertainment.
Even though I tried to make it a low work event, it ended up to take quite a lot of effort. Briony and Caitlin stepped up as they always do and worked their young, fit tushes off well after I ran out of puff!
It was all a huge amount of fun and I kind of want to do it all again!
