I had a surprise party thrown for me today. Yes tomorrow is my birthday. I left work and straight headed to Mydin Subang Jaya to do the weekly grocery. The jam was really bad as I was returning home and my husband called and asked me for a lift. So I came home to drop groceries but kids and awi (my domestic Goddess) were not to be found so I assumed they may have gone walking ...So I rushed through the traffic to pick Siva up and he was grinning ear to ear and presented me with a bouquet of white roses. Hmmm he remembered. I mentioned some time ago that for my funeral (yes I do like to plan ahead!) I wanted white roses only (now I wonder why he is giving me white roses on my birthday, is he trying to tell me something!!!). I am a sucker for flowers and do not like practical gifts, I love being spoilt with roses and chocolates. Then we went to pick up pizzas to go, as he said his colleagues told him to get them for breakfast (at this point I was suspecting he had something up his sleeves). Then he drove straight to Bangsar to a friends house and out came the cake, and my kids, maid, aunty Lizzy, Usha, Angel and Louis Vham were there. So we ate and chatted and ate some more. My friends never fail to throw me a party every year..! Usha made a cake for me, carrot cake with cream cheese topping, but she was not happy with it so they got me another cake from Strudels. It was indeed a good evening, and I am still not sure how they managed to get Louis there. I am indeed blessed with good family and very good friends. Thank you Angel for always making my birthday special, and thank you Usha for the lovely cake, thanks aunt lizzy for letting us dirty your beautiful house, and thanks Louis for appearing there from your busy, busy social life and thanks to arjoonha, sheroz and bhaarath for hiding in the dark waiting for their mother to walk in to surprise her. And thanks to Siva for giving me what I love and not what I need, and waiting for me patiently for 3 hours.
