Wednesday evening, I was invited to join some quilty friends for QNIC (quilting night in Canada!) but by the time I got home from school, got my "livestock" fed, shopped for chemistry experiment supplies (yikes!) I was knackered. All I wanted to do was put on my nightgown and go to bed. Which was precisely what I did.
I called with my regrets, leaving a message on Jacqui's voice mail. A little while later, the phone rang, and Gail calmly explained that I was NOT excused from attending, because it was my surprise birthday party! OMG - first I laughed my head off, and then scrambled to get my clothes back on and get to my party!
Last night, I was in my pjs (again?) sitting at the dining room table, reading a magazine when there was a knock at the door, and in walked my mother and grandmother! By this time I had completely forgotten it WAS my birthday! We visited for a while, and then Hubby came home, with all the trimmings for another birthday party! Cake & icecream, and later my brother (who will be joining me in "F" word zone when his birthday comes around next month!).
A friend of Hubby's makes cakes as a hobby. He asked her to make a cake that looked like a quilt! What do you think?
Of course, Gibby Kitty wanted in on some of this cake action:
Look at those evil eyes!
"Just hand over some icing, and no one gets hurt!"
