It was my birthday on the 28th May, and the kids organised a lunch at a local club. My son offered to drive us ( he lives with us) and we set out.
When we arrived DS said his sister was in the back room.
Well, she was, with a bunch of other friends, all gathered for a surprise celebration of my husband & my 25th wedding anniversary, which was on the 24th May.
What a surprise, we had no idea. We have never made a huge fuss of our anniversary with the kids, celebrating it quietly ourselves. The kids all wished us happy anniversary on the day, and while I thought that they may have acknowledged that it was a milestone, I wasn't upset as we never made it a big deal.
I never thought that they would book a room., invite heaps of friends and actually recreate our wedding cake, a three tier pavolva.
Needless to say I am proud of all of them, and we had such a good time.
I had allowed for lunch in WW programme, but the array of drinks and chocolates and pavolva totally blew that.
Back on the programme today, all is not lost.
