The day after the night before......

Yesterday I clocked up another birthday! Awesome, keep 'em coming. I don't like the numbers involved (haha) but I can't turn the clock back, so I will lie and say I was 21 again (plus GST)
Joe cooked a meal of roast pork loin (Jamie Oliver) with herby stuffing, roast spuds & kumara, fresh veg, apple sauce and Joe's scrummy gravy. It wasn't a big affair, just a few close friends, Michael & Tash and us, just enough to fit around the table perfectly! The table being the outdoor one dragged inside, perfect size. Kerry & Pete brought a dessert, also Glen the Karakariki Dessert king (who makes the most amazing cakes) made me a birthday cake, plus another fruity sponge cake. Devine. He saved the day actually with the birthday cake, we were metres away from home when I suddenly remembered...cake!!! Bugger. Glens will always be far nicer than any shop bought one.
I won't blather on anymore, I'm feeling a tad delicate this morning. I will say however that it was a lovely evening, with great food, wonderful company, a few too many glasses of vino and Singstar!
Here are a few photos you can see the rest here.....
