Monday, 15 June 2009 the afternoon and evening ...

Dereck and I then went to the Westville Country Club to check out how everything was going for our party in the evening. Yes, there was a party of note taking place as on 16 June 2009 we would be celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary. I can’t believe that we have been married that long and although we have had our ups and downs, the ups far exceeded the downs.

My friend Michele did the flower arrangements for us and they were absolutely stunning.

Shelley made our cake for us and this was also very, very yummy and she iced it in my favourite colour – mauve – thanks so much Shelley – everyone commented to me on the lovely cake.
I had completed two layouts of our wedding, one of which was the layout done by the delegates at the recent Doing Life Scrapaganza and the other one of Doing Life's kits. I borrowed Desire’s frames to put them in and had these set up on the table.

I had also made some pouches (picture) into which I put a chocolate and Lauren and I set these on the table for each guest.

The meal we had was beef curry and rice as well as chicken carbonara with rice and vegetables.For dessert we had malva pudding with ice-cream and custard.

We had a great time and it was good to see everyone to celebrate with us.

We only left there at about 1am and some of the die hards went to some other place to carry on, but I was rather tired and so ended up going home. Also, I wanted to see all our presents we had received. We really got spoilt and got some lovely gifts and quite a bit of money we will enjoy spending. By the time we finished unpacking and opening our presents, we got to bed at 2am!!
Dereck and I had sat together beforehand and compiled a selection of music and everyone complimented us on the selection. Anyone knowing both mine and Dereck's tastes will then realise that this was quite an achievement!!!!

Pooped out signing off ….

Lovely photographs, love the scrapbook pages you did of your wedding day, had to google malva pudding as had no idea what it was, but might have to give that a try, sounds yummy!

Oh wow, those yellow flower arrangements really popped and made everything look so cheerful. Love your very special layouts.
