I am shattered today, no word if a lie. It has literally been non-stop. I arose at 6:40 to venture forth to rowing and then did two back-to-back outings in the 8, hitting a grand total of 22k! After a few chats / bits if admin, I got away shortly after 11:30 to start my part in the ‘Lou’s surprise birthday party’ plan.
I high-tailed it home, showered and changed and then headed to Ware to collect Lou. Once at ours, she was treated to a mezze lunch (including humus and pitta) followed by a cream tea (on a proper two tier cake stand with clotted cream). We also played some fun ‘Sing Star’ dance games and she whooped my arse on the Gladiator Combat feature on our Sports game. Then came the tricky part – getting her back to her house for about 4:30 without her realising everyone was there for a surprise! But we somehow managed it by a fictitious story involving a trip to Stevenage and then Sam needing to nip to the loo. She was genuinely surprised – she screamed! Hehe!
So we have passed an evening of chatting an continual nibbling and some games. Rosie also brough Chinese lanterns. I have never used them before but we lit them and they suddenly floated off over Ware. They were a good mile away by the time they went out!
So, tired now so I’m going to sleep! Nighty-night.
