Brother, Little Jo's 2nd birthday party will be smaller than last year. So pleased you and R offered to have it at your place. Did we? Must have in a weak moment.
I turned out to be bigger than the pay to participate orgy my Malaysian mate has just participated in in Spain. The orgy sounded immense. Girls who like bois who like bois who like girls.......and so forth.
But in the highrise, family, furniture rearranged, much cleaning to impress, friends, pairs of ladies with babies and children, hot food, drinks, hot oven, food, crisps, savs, party pies but home made sausage rolls, sushi and wasabi went wanting and thrown out, cakes, balloons, nuts, lollipops and snowballs, beautiful birthday cake, nice stuffs for the vego girls who wear sensible shoes. Six children under five. Oh, some people have that many as a family and must live in perpetual chaos.
Photos from our Sydney holiday shown around. Dvd playing of Little Jo's first six months. Later swapped for oldest nephew in Glasgow dvd greeting to his younger sister for her 21st. Yes, no underwear under your kilt. Shan't mention we saw the bits when we changed the laddie's nappy some 23 years ago.
A very successful afternoon party. Mother who had fallen off a step ladder while sugar soaping walls received much sympathy, so she was happy. Sis in Law and Tradie Brother's girlfriend did not go the biff. Bone doctor's parents attended and did not socialise, as per norm. Bone Doctor's mystery brother came. Said nothing. Long blonde hair and a long nose. He is useful to feed Sister's cat when she is away.
The highrise looked like a disaster, but thirty minutes of concentrated effor by R and myself, and we had it almost back to normal. Still some sticky finger marks on glass to clean, but that can wait.
Sister offered us $100 to clean our carpet. Stupid. Furniture would have to moved. I never clean under furntiture unless it has to be moved. I have been spot cleaning carpets for thirty years of all sorts of animal, vegetable and mineral stains. I don't need a proffesional to remove stomped in chocolate cake, sticky lollies, spilt milk etc.
Crazy day, but preceded by a walk into town for some supplies for the party and a very nice brunch at Riverview? at Federation Wharf.
