I'm baaaaccccckkkk!

Well yes, I am here after all.  It’s been a while I know.  Lots of reasons and excuses, but now, at the end of the day – I’m here!
Great frivolity here as we prepare for son's 18th party tomorrow night. 

As the marquee was erected yesterday at our place, I had a sudden flashback to where we stayed in Las Vegas, the Luxor Hotel, on our wonderful trip to the States in February.
 Suddenly I wished I was still there, in that over-the-top, surreal city.  It was a great trip, though not long enough!  We saw bits of California, Utah and Nevada.
  
..... oh it was so much easier when I could just pick him up!
 
(sorry for the poor quality snap of our wee lad - they are def not dandruff flakes!)

Now he is about to turn 18 - and we are all busily preparing for his party tomorrow night.  Lots of trepidation (on our part) but hoping against hope that it all goes well.  Forty  teenagers at your place tomorrow anyone?  All well behaved angels .... oh absolutely.   Wish us luck!

I will be back with some ‘after’ photos – can’t guarantee any ‘during’ photos!

Till then

Cheers Wendy

Hello, it's so GOOD to hear from you. Wishing you all the best with the 18th birthday party. The kids will have fun no matter what, but as parents it's always a nerve racking thing wanting everything to go well. Have fun!!!
