Happy 70th birthday…

leave a comment »

… to my dear Pa.

He is 70 today.

He said he didn’t want a big fuss for his birthday, as he had his hip-replacement op very recently, and didn’t know how long the recuperation period would be. So he wanted it low-key and said we could come round for snacks if we liked.

Sooo.

We all rock up for what we think is going to be a quiet celebration, only to discover that MY SISTER FROM OZ AND HER HUSBAND CAME TO SURPRISE US ALL!!!

They told no-one they were coming over to surprise my dad for his 70th. (Don’t even know how they managed to keep that big a secret, lol)

There was so much excitement and we had a great party ๐Ÿ™‚

My aunt made this lovely (and truly delicious) cake…

And here is a photo of the birthday boy himself (2nd from left) flanked my sis, Karina and her husband, Kous. And little Cayleigh, my niece.

I have some more photo’s but they still have to be uploaded (tomorrow’s job).

But it was a fantastic visit, and so, SO lovely to have Karina back in South Africa. I have missed her!

They had us in fits of laughter at their anecdotes. Will have to share some of the stories sometime.

For now, though, off to bed, as usual. Ten minutes to midnight by the kitchen clock ๐Ÿ™‚
