My birthday party on Saturday night went really well with everyone having a hoot of a time! So yep, now I'm 50 I'm authentic "vintage"! Considering how crappy the weather was, possibility of thunderstorms forecast (ie...power blackouts!!!) and heavy rain as well, we did remarkably well with only a couple of showers. I had a great time with most of my rellies turning up and a good smattering of friends as well. The highlight of the night was a surprise "entertainer" appearing to give us a couple of numbers....singing numbers, not the other sort! lol The most surprising thing about this was that my hubby had organised it through my brother weeks ago and I never knew about it! "Gemeena" was a hit with everyone.....though I think my Uncle Pete's 18 year old nephew, who was visiting from England, was a tad taken aback and we made sure that "she" played up sufficiently to him to embarrass him .....as all good Aussies should do! hahahaha Here's Matthew & Gemeena...
Here I am with Gemeena about to "blow" out my candles....yes there was a funny bit here, hence all the hilarity in the faces.
Gemeena once again with my Mum and her 4 sisters....lovingly called by their 4 brothers... "The five ugly sisters". How untrue!!! From the left, Ev, my Mum, Lily, Elayne & Rosalie with Gemeena at the back...obviously!
From the left, Mel, Emma (open your eyes girl!), me, Jenny and little Megan....sorry Megan, couldn't resist!
