I am glad that we have another lovely challenge this week. I am half alive at the end of it so the post won't be very long.
In general I don't like parties because I am not very sociable. After working with people for nearly 25 years and having four children in five years I can only relax alone, far from any noise and people.
The other problem is that I have almost no photos from parties that I went to and liked. My eldest sister's 50th birthday party was the best. As she is a nice and funny person we could prepare so many sketches from her life and funny presents that it took several hours. We laughed all the time and whenever we mention the event in the family again we first laugh for a few minutes and then we start reminiscing. But I've found out that I haven't got a single photo! Time to take action to change that.
I also love parties that we organize with my colleagues and ex-colleagues. We meet, eat a lot, laugh and chat and chat and chat.
I must also mention all my daughters' parties - birthdays, graduations, communions and confirmations. I hope they will have plenty of nice memories and I love looking at those photos. But I can also remember how exhausting it was to prepare and organize everything. I made myself all their birthday cakes up to 12th-13th birthdays and we are all proud of that. Then they help me with the decorating. We used to go shopping together for chocolate or sugar hearts, flowers, animals etc and then we put everything on the cake!
Have a nice weekend, I hope it isn't as cold at your places as it is here (6°Celsius!).
