It's been and gone.
There will be some photos but I need to think about some privacy issues first.
CATH - £100 in untraceable notes by Wednesday means I won't publish that photo of you. £200 gets it off my hard drive for good. :-)
ETHAN - send all your pocket money or you're on the Internet.
I'll remember Saturday. I hope I thanked people properly in person for what they did: I was truly touched by your gifts and your affection.
Thanks are due to:
The Bushey crowd for "Boggins' Thoughtful Spot". Mainly I'll be thinking "what lovely people". Blub.
"Unky Al" for poo-patrol and inflation.
Bradshaw. For the 2nd year running you didn't get me a new bra. Sort it out. Also: Happy Birthday.
Jackie next door for quiche and not minding getting wet.
Barbara. Big Gold Star. So much; too much to list.
Ali for getting all that family tree material organised. Could you tell I was a bit stunned?
Venus Williams & Lindsay Davenport for distracting my guests with a 3-set classic instead of the usual 6-2 6-0. Kept the booze consumption down for a bit.
Sir Bob Geldof for arranging his stupid little knees-up for the same day. Frankly, it was in my OUTLOOK first. Cheers. Just check next time, OK?
G & J for good thoughts.
Everyone else who helped. Or just came. Or who would have come if they could have.
Above all, the Best Girl In The World. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I'll probably think of other people the second I upload this. Thanks to all.
