My friend’s birthday today – A.BB has been a part of our family ever since we came to town so in true family tradition – we don’t do lessons on her birthday – we celebrate!

 

I had to go into town early to drop Jess off to Mainly Music and buy my friend a present (yes I know I should have been more organized!!) The plan was that I would get back just before our guests arrived!  Therefore it was Nomi’s responsibility to get the table and house ready for guests.  She did a great job.

She set the table, cleaned the china, found flowers for the vase, put out a choice of teas, arranged the lamingtons and found a musical candle to help us sing Happy Birthday!  She did an excellent job.

 

In honour of one our guests being Canadian  I thought I would bake traditional Aussie Lamingtons.  Things got a bit tricky with the icing so I made a panic call to my MIL – who taught me to make them.  She wasn’t home but I had a quick chat to my SIL who helped me out.  In the end they came together quick and effortlessly and were delicious.  I enjoyed the opportunity to bake something a little extra as I haven’t done that for ages.

 

We had a wonderful morning – quickly moving into the afternoon!  It was after 2.00 that we had to push them out the door!  We had arranged to go to the airport to say goodbye to another friend. 

 

We bought back a car full of kids for an impromptu play date late this afternoon (this sentence makes them sound like strays we picked up off the street but they were actually our close friends who were also at the airport.)
