I intend to do penance for my wicked ways and say 100 hail Caesers, I like salad! I will partake of wholly wine and not have impure thoughts of cake and other such evil things, the Sainted Jenny Craig would not allow such things especially as I have foregone 1KG in bodily weight this week.
So I ask of your forgiveness and hope that the following photos of such a plethora of coveted scrumptiousness will make up for my tardiness!
Right enough of that bollox......just look at this lot!!
Actually, first I should explain something, at the end of February I have a birthday, a BIG birthday, one with a '0' on the end, we had intended to go a cruise but that's been put of for a while as we're taking a trip back the UK later this year, so can't do both. The next best thing is to bring the islands to me!
We have a big barn, full of stuff of little or no use, so it's being cleared and will become party central, AKA Club Tropicana Beach, there will be a band, cocktails, lamb on a spit, a sandy beach and so much more, more of which I am about to show you...
Over the last couple of weeks we've managed to find the following on Trade Me, in shops and in op shops.....
a box of goodies
plastic glasses for the p*ssheads!
lanterns, also in blue and green
grass skirts AND coconuts!!
I found this little lot today....
BUT and it's a BIG but...the way too cool and most awesome thing of all,
found on Trade Me has to be this..
3 umbrellas in total
annd they threw in a box of shells and a umbrella base too!
We have a HelpXer staying with us at the moment helping us with jobs around the place, her name is Alice and she is from France. She is a designer of childrens clothing and also is very good with computer graphics, she very kindly designed my party invite, she used one of my photos that I took in Rarotonga and did this with it...
I've had so much fun finding these things and I can't wait for the party, Joe is technically organising the whole thing but as he works I've been finding the props! I had an uncle that worked for the BBC in the props department, I think I may have inherited some of his genes, I reckon he might have been pretty proud of my efforts so far!
Other things found today,
a petanque set $5
kaftany thing $6
necklace that matched the colours in my top perfectly, $3
and that's it, for now! Other stuff is going on but that's for another day!
See ya soon, I'm off to cook dinner......
