So, I had a birthday and I hosted a dinner party for a dozen friends. Everybody arrived late and teased me about how late I always am to everything with them and I told them you cannot outfox the fox because I loved them being late. Also, I gave everyone the wrong address and one poor friend got horribly lost before I realised what I’d done.
I have never cooked a meal for so many people and I astonished myself with the success of my dinner. Though to be honest, it does not take all that much to astonish me about me.
One of my friends gave a speech about me.. and it made me cry. They all wrote love notes to me in their birthday cards and that made me cry, too.
I had a wonderful time and I must start throwing more dinner parties again.
This is my sister’s baby, who slept pretty much the entire way through the dinner party.. like he wasn’t related to my children.
Before you ask, I did not bake my birthday cake. But I bought it myself.
