The Eleventh Hour October 18th, 2006

It would seem to be the story of my life, no matter how good my intentions of planning ahead and giving myself enough time to be organized it is inevitably the eleventh hour before I actually manage to get things done…My sister has been asking me for months what I wanted to do for my 50th Birthday, I wanted a party but I don’t really like big parties that tend to have load music that I can’t talk over, my house isn’t designed for parties, I have a limited budget and I just couldn’t get my head around organizing anything. A few weeks ago she pinned me down and said that we could have a party at her house and asked what day of the week my birthday was, I didn’t even know that so she got a calander, found out that it was a Sunday, her next question was if we have it on the day what time, for this question she gave me a multiple choise night time, early evening, afternoon tea time….At that point she could stop because I would like an Afternoon Tea Party….Then more time passed as I had the the crazy get together (Viv now has more photos on her blog too), I then lost more time because I had hurt my back and it took a while to heal, so before I knew it, with only 2 weeks to the date, the Eleventh hour for sending out invitations had come…Again my sister came to my rescue, she and my neice sat me down again and we wrote a list of what would need doing and when, we wrote the guest list and worked out the wording for the invitation, once I had the wording I was able to type it up, after I had the words done I thought about what I could do for the background…I want to have different cup/saucer and plate settings for everyone and had started looking in the local op shops where I found the cup I used for the background image, it has no saucer or plate but that didn’t matter because I just so love the cup and was very happy with how it photographed…now that the invitations are done I just have to work throught the list we wrote but right now it is time I went to bed before my son rings me to pick him up from the train station, it will be good to see him…
