What is happening with the weather? I know it’s winter and all that, but this wind and rain is ridiculous. And since when have there been so many trees which now appear so dangerous to walk underneath, drive beside or park under? I’m sure there weren’t so many before the wind. Still, only tiny powercuts to deal with and our colds are all improving.
Bet you all want to know how Rosie’s birthday went?
We had a grand night, thank you very much. A good group of Rosie’s friends came round. We had to improvise a bit because of the weather, but Team Kilburn is nothing if not adaptable. So . . . .
This was our bonfire once Toby and Chris decided that even with a tankerful of petrol, the big bonfire wasn’t going to light
These were some brilliant cakes Georgia made to accompany the burgers, hot dogs and Refresher lollies (you can get Refresher lollies!!)
We had some bizarre snake fireworks, which started out as round black discs like watch batteries and grew and grew into long twirly tubes. This is part of the epic firework display created by some of the guests
And here is the finale in lieu of a birthday cake. We did have candles to light the room though.
We really enjoyed it, so thank you Rosie’s friends, all of you who came along. There’s also been cards and birthday greetings people have been putting on the blog and Facebook. We really liked the idea someone put up about who Rosie would be partying with – as she undoubtedly would be. Her choices are endless and it’s really funny to imagine who she would get to come along.
And, we can report that the first TKOE blood donation has been made. Well done Kate! Mine’s not until March.
And only £19,898 to go to hit our target as TKOE has had its first donations of 2012. Thanks for all the offers of donations to come as well. Will confirm which charities shortly. Very shortly.
And, and, and – have you seen the blog is coming up to 400,000 hits!
