Happy Birthday to Me! I’m thirty three :)

Littletree plotted behind my back to organise, with the help of AquaCat, a surprise party for me at the local beach bar where we hang out. They somehow managed to conspire that I would be kept busy at home for the morning, and then got a massage in the afternoon, so when I finally arrived at the beach, our sala was all decorated and beautiful. Everyone jumped out and yelled Surprise!

I’ve never had a surprise party before! Littletree was so excited

AquaCat played music for us all

And people bought me fancy cocktails

As the sun set I played some guitar and talked with friends while the kids played on the beach

We had an awesome feast – barbecued barracuda and all manner of delectable treats

And then the big surprise – they had organised a birthday cake!

I was somewhat dubious, given my experience with birthday cakes in South East Asia, but it was the perfect touch to a wonderful party

And of course, the kids loved it, frothy, sickly icing and all!
