Party Queen

I know the title sounds like an Abba song… but this is my very last post about my birthday. I promise!

I just wanted to say a huge enormous glittery THANK YOU to my insane kind friends who organized a party at their house, cooked all the food and then cleaned up after we had all gone home. It was no mean feat considering the kids outnumbered the adults….Did I mention how crazy wonderful they are?

I even got a delicious chocolate cake – and a royal crown and wand. I kicked off things nicely by asking everyone to address me as Your Majesty for the entire evening…

I may have got a bit carried away waving my wand around and ordering people to obey me! Not all the adults thought it was fun to hop backwards on one leg while holding their noses and trumpeting like elephants. (Not really sure why – because it was hilarious to watch)

I thought I detected some quiet mutterings wondering whether I had just turned 50 or 5.

Or, as the oldest anklebiter put it, “You’re really getting in touch with your inner child, mama!”

    Thank you for your words to me. I am truly amazed at what we walk through as a community here and comforted by your kindness and saddened by your empathy. Because I know you KNOW something of where I am. Your blog endears you to your readers and I thank you!

    Happy Birthday! Everyone should have the chance to wear a crown :)! You wore it well!

  18. I’m SO glad you embraced your friends celebrating you! Wonderful! I like a woman who can wear her crown with confidence and use a wand properly. Good for you! Looks like a beautiful party. :-)

  20. That’s what I love about Scandinavia. They make birthdays so festive, especially the BIG ones. It sounds like you had the best time. For my 50th, which was 11 days after my husband’s 50th, we flew to Fiji, one of the places I’ve always dreamed of visiting.
