Ooh, sorry that’s a bit blurry. I can’t find the scanner in the mess of the spare bedroom (it looks like a bomb hit as we have thrown everything in here that hasn’t been unpacked or doesn’t have a place yet) so I had to take a photo of this invitation instead.
It’s a little crazy to be planning a party when we may have to cancel it all, but Mark doesn’t turn a very very old 40 everyday, so on the 30th we are serving some booze and nibbles to celebrate his birthday (which is actually the day before). I didn’t bother sending any invites overseas, but if anyone just happens to be planning a trip over, let me know so I can put you on the guest list!
I think it’s just going to be Mark’s family (on his mum’s side) and some of his airplane-flying friends joining us. Which is good as I probably won’t be up to entertaining quite so much, and we have very little room in this place. I think we are probably going to have to add some furniture to the pile of junk that is this spare room to make space, and borrow some chairs. If it was summer, the garden would be even more perfect for a marquee than the old house, but oh well.
There will be copious amounts of alcohol available yet again as we still have about 30,000 bottles of various things left over from the wedding…
