Celebrating the 50th anniversary of my birth

The Fifty Shades of Me story is written….. so let the celebrations begin.

Plans for this party were underway for many months with the logistics of international & interstate travellers being balanced with employment rosters and budgets.  The selection of the Theme was easy as we had a few spare themes up our sleeves to use for events – The Wizard of Oz it was, it was – it was the theme we chose, becoz…

Guests began to arrive on the Thursday before the party and the last left the following Friday ensuring that I had a full week of celebrations, reminiscences and late nights with the actual time & date of my birth anniversary passing largely unnoticed in the blur of perpetual scotch.  Bliss.
