Post dinner report

The dinner went well, I only spent two hours in the kitchen, most of which was preparing the fruit salad, although it was a very welcome dinner at the end of a heavy meal. The cheese was only eaten as a supper while playing board games. We could not find extra pillows, so Dan and I were on the floor, but it was cosy enough, all 8 of us were seating very comfortably.

The whole dinner was good fun. Jaya is such a wonderful little girl, at 8 o'clock, the parents set up the cot in my room, changed her to her pyjamas, she waved goodnight and we did not hear from her the entire evening.

Alex got a lovely lilac/aqua green tie with matching cufflings and a PSP game Fifa 07.

We also got the invitation for Nadine and Jaco's wedding in Durban, South Africa on March 17th. I would really love to be able to make it. I guess it will depend on how much bonus I get this year, or if I can convince Ron to send me down there for work, but the SA team is very self-sufficient and I would need to learn from them, more than I could help them.

Alex is having a bad day today because he found out that when he changed his one-way to Malaysia, his return was automatically cancelled, so now he is stranded in Malaysia with no return journey and he had paid a bomb to change his ticket to Malaysia (one-way), do you think the agency would have informed him!!!??? No, we found out because Dan old us to check, it happened to him before. Bloody useless agents.

Sounds like a lovely evening! Couldn't ask for better.

Just one thing - what is the handcuff that matches the tie? Is there a picture of such a thing on the net somewhere? We're probably 2 years behind you in fashion. (My husband and I have often thought of buying up ends of lines there and importing them because they'd still be way ahead of the curve)

Yes sounds nice. Thanks for answering my question on my blog. Sounds like you had an interesting child hood. LOL.. I am glad we met though. I would love to go to another country sometime. I want the girls to be old enough to remember it though. Maybe 13 and sixteen. They are only almost 3 and six right now. I guess we will see what happens when the time comes. Tweets.
