Hey, just like the Venga Boys - we. like. to. party.
Whilst pulling all-nighters and kicking up our heels were once the icing on our cake of life,
now Hubby and I are more likely to be literally enjoying the icing on the cake instead.
How talented are my friends???
Talent by association?
We've certainly partied 'hard' this weekend
- and have also been kicking back on the couch by 8pm each night!!
The times, they change.
The hangovers, they hurt.
The kids, they don't care.
The inappropriate adults, they don't grow up... :-)
We've celebrated at three birthday parties in the last couple of days
- each one filled with great friends, tons of fun - and of course, treats galore.
A small part of me craves a weekend of no plans and family spontaneity
(Easter - you may just be exactly what the Mummy ordered!)
but all the other parts of me love an excuse to celebrate our fabulous 'village',
mark milestones, run with a theme, socialise, watch my boy have himself a ball
and live life to it's fullest (until about 8pm, that is!)
Amongst the celebrations of the last couple of days,
my thoughts are constantly returning to the unfortunate fragility of life
and this renewed need I have to savour every moment,
soak up all the 'good stuff' I can and make damn sure that those I love know they're loved.
I hope your weekend was one to treasure.
