Swahili Party Night

Well I dont think any other birthday will beat this years one. What a fantastic night, and I stayed sober to enjoy every minute of it. !
Took a speed boat out in afternoon, Anie tried wakeboarding.... lots of attempts.... and lots of swallowing of sea water... made me decide.... maybe I didnt want to try this after all... but... we did take a rubber ring type thingy in the boat with us.. so I had a go on that instead, omg.... I havent laughed that much in years.... should have some fantastic pics, but... will have to wait until I return home. being pulled by a speed boat at silly speed crashing the waves was brilliant. then Matt showed us how wake boarding should be done, I so hate smart kids !!lol ...
In the evening.... Swahili night on the jetty bar.... this was swahili food, henna hand and foot tattoos, yes.. of course I had one.... and this was followed with a bottle of Dom Perry... (cant afford it so dont know how to spell it, but sure you know which bottle of expensive stuff I talking about) curtesy of son and dil. then.... Swahili dancers and singers... and my fav Ressie manager, singing and carrying a birthday cake.... unbeliveable night.... (once again pics will follow on my return).... still on a high today....
only bad news...... yep.... toe is broken defo.... and possibly the next one in, and some small bones in foot... opps comes to mind. and the worse thing, other than pain.... might stop me from diving, as cant get the flippers on.
well thats it for today folkes, just wish i could add some pics to keep you amused and interested... but will add when return home... take care all, bye for now

I think the time has come where I will have to update you all on my travels ok it is only from Dover to betteshanger my town house and my summer home but unfortunatly I have to drag the 666 child with me everywhere and dog sit the most spoilt, skitzo, senile dogs i have ever met.
I have never known dogs like it and i was a veterinary nurse for 6 years so here i go....
the first day i actually took them to my house thought this would be a good idea so i had everyone and everything together oh my god so not a good idea.
muggy who is a 900 year old rat aka miniture yorkshire terrier thought all her holidays had come at once and she ran round my house like she was 2 again trotting round like she owned the place however.... xev the manic depressive, skitzo, spoilt collie brat has huge issues. the biuggest issue being she doesnt/cant walk on laminate flooring. so guess what every floor in my house is covered with.... yep you guessed it laminate!! so after 15 minutes of trying to coax her in my house foot up arse... dragging by collar... ham in front of nose... oh then it twigs get the ball get the ball (she has ocd obsessive conpulsive disorder for you of you that dont know) no dogs dont get it but xev does!! really!!

Stacy said...

so we finally get her in the house and she sits in the middle of the rug in my living room looking like she wants to slit her paws... i hadnt even let my dogs out yet.
so to cut a long story short after a lovely walk to the park me with my dogs and pram )my dogs are normal they can walk with a pram without thinking the wheels are out to get them>>> yes xev!! and my other half 17 stone body builder doorman skin head with miss ocd and the rat lol what a picture they enjoyed them selves anyway.
so it comes to feeding time.... the rat WONT and i say WONT eat dog food and skitzo can only eat one biscuit at a time where she goes into the kitchen takes one biscuit brings it into HER living room throws it round the living room for about half an hour so she knows it is not poisonous and not going to eat her she then proceeds to eat it and so this goes on.. she has even taught ruby to bring them into her one by one i am not kidding you.
so my house 2 labs need i say anymore buzz inhales his food and eats ANYTHING literally and libby loves her grub too. so they all get split up skitzo dog has her food down the rat gets put into a corner with her..... wait for it sausages i turn around and the food is gone fantastic!!! erm no buzz had eaten the lot!!!!!!!!
BED TIME...
i do not have dogs upstairs ever i do not have dogs upstairs ever i do not have dogs upstairs ever!!!
after 4 hours of the rat talking to herself at the top of her very loud voice and xev joining into the chorus singing and then my dogs thinking there was something very odd going on at 3 in the morning they join in to. so where do the dogs go yes upstairs with other half awake 666 child awake and all the dogs fast asleep.

Stacy said...

Hi love, sounds like you are being treated in the manner you deserve. Glad it's going so well except for the poor foot....which sounds really painful.
Be careful with the other foot.

Lol, lol, Oh dear Jackie. I am rolling about on the floor reading Stacy's comments. Yep, you really will have a live in grandaughter when you get back.
I hope the toes feel better today and you can get the flippers on.
Keep enjoying yourself and forget the warm welcome home that you are going to get.
