Birthday Party 2004
On December 4 2004 it was my birthday - and for once it fell on a Saturday! So I held a party at my house, and jolly good it was too!

I had a very pleasant time and lots of lovely presents, of which two stood out - a set of 4 mini Moet bottles, with 4 drinking straws, from David (I felt so spoiled and decadent!) and a book of Sergey's poetry. I can't read Russian but it was a very personal and touching gift. Other people very kindly gave me things like CDs from my wishlist, and I am still waiting for some others to come in the post!

Cray had never seen more than two guests at once in our house, so his behaviour was very good indeed, particularly as his bed was off limits (because I'd made it up for people to stay over).

So, photos!

Orange is better! Paul is glowing!

Rachel was very silly and made my Aduki into a glowing codpiece. (Wonder where I got that Aduki?)

Paul is off. So are my batteries, but no worries as the flash would only have picked up his hi-vis anyway.

Paul and his beloved Brompton cycle into the dark at nearly 3am.
Thanks to everyone for coming - I hope you had a great time too!
