Terri jane turned 40 earlier this week,
we celebrated the occasion at Mum and Dad’s
With drinks to start Dad’s new speciality – The Burley Cocktail
a delicious arrangement of fizz with a few teaspoon of freshly squeezed passion fruit.

Terri jane was radiant and the kids looked so grown up in their smart coats and pretty dresses. One by one TJ opened her presents and cards enjoying every moment, while Charlotte happily sipped on Dad’s beer! or as they call him “pop” like we did with our grandad. TJ loved her presents including the white gold bracelet I had picked out from me and Tan.
The Burley Cocktail
Much to Danielle and Charlotte’s surprise I had got them a little present each to open, Disney hair brush sets with hair bands and necklaces, their faces lit up like fairy lights brushing each others hair with no hesitation, must be a female instinct. Danielle proudly wearing the beaded necklace with snow white hanging on a heart shaped locket.
Dinner was served, Mum did an amazing job as always,
I helped dish up and serve. Chicken baked in white sauce, crispy roast potatoes in goose fat, cauliflower cheese, roasted parsnips and carrots, green beans, brussels and sweet corn. It was deeelicious.

After dinner straight to the sofa’s to relax and play a game, basically it would of been even funnier if we were all drunk, it involves playing cards and wrapped up presents. Long story short at the end of the game the presents you have won you have to open and wear. As you may image the presents are filled with joke comedy glasses, nipple tassel’s, whips, wigs, thongs and masks – I will leave to your imagination

Next is afters, we end up gathering in the kitchen talking and eating apple crumble and ice cream, passion fruit/chocolate brule with music playing and the kids singing and twirling like ballerina’s.
Then it’s tea and Cupcakes, no room left for me but somehow
the kids had plenty!

Tick tock tick tock it’s getting late and time to go home…
Happy 40th Birthday Terri jane!
