Well against my better judgement but as promised pictures of my 50th birthday party. I showed these to my Mum the other day (along with the other 305!) and she didn't recognise me!! I had a great time, and the pictures are lovely to look back on but there honestly isn't one of me that I like!!! No new profile pic here then.
The drinks were lined up for guests as they arrived, my cake was gorgeous, the bottom was chocolate sponge, the middle vanilla and the top was strawberry cake yum yum. Not one slice was left at the end of the night !
I had two show girls helping to hand around the canapes then the vodka and mojito jellies which were a big hit with the men (the girls not the jelly) actually the girls and the jellies! Of the 180 people there I think at least 179 had a hangover the next day - I was fine.......I had my hangover two days later LOL
My eldest son Jordan, made a speech, I think my husband was too drunk to string a sentence together! At least I didn't have to say anything.
Here I am with all my family, you can see how far gone my husband is on this picture LOL There is a canvas behind us that all the guests signed and wrote messages (well most of them that could still write)
Me again with my friends Colin & Sally - note bottle of pink champagne & straw! You can also see how hot I was, the whole night was one long hot flush!!
With my best friend Janie (in red) and her son's girlfriend Sophie. I had a mouthful of chocolate cake at the time, it looks like I've had cheek implants!!
Below is my daughter Raegan and my eldest sons french girlfriend Agathe who is just gorgeous - I do keep mentioning that I'm desperate for a grandchild but he's not biting!!
Raegans twin brother Joel on the right with Rob and Emily who both work for us, my twins are my babies, you can see why I'm ready for grandchildren - they're a bit too big to take to the park now!!
It was so hot that night people kept drifting outside, the heat was probably coming off me!!
Just a few more.......keep awake!
Some dancing and merriment, Lou and Toni 2 lovely friends.
Last 2, well done those that managed to stay with me till the end! Graham on the fist picture celebrated his 60th the night before, as you can see he is a bit of a party animal!
Well I think you can get the general idea of my birthday from those pictures. No more parties from me for a long time now, we've done 18th, 21st, 40th, 50th and silver weddings I think when Michael reaches 60 we'll just go out for a nice quiet meal!!
Love 'n Hugs Laurie xx
