Thanks for the Lolly Bag, Michael.

It's Mel's Show and Tell time!! Click here to see who else is standing at the head of the class, bursting with pride at showing their news!!

Today was my nephews seventh birthday party, down in Sydney. Mr TC was too sick to go ..... this weekend, he was also too sick to:


1) Come to an art gallery opening

2) Go to a family fun day

3) Go to a local annual circus equinox

4) Attend a friends birthday party

He went to to Queensland next week to watch his son play soccer. The cancer excuse is starting to wear a little thin. (I'm mostly joking). I don't want to be a single parent anymore, so I gave up on going anywhere too ... except Tomcats party. It was at a playcentre down in Sydney, and Tiger was HANGING to go. So I took him, and Mr TC minded Monkey.

My sister Tee made a pinata birthday cake ... a cake with a hard outer shell of chocolate around it, containing gold chocolate coins ...






It was a hit! (Literally)

This is what it looked like after it got attacked by a swarm of hungry boys (oh, and me. I was pulling off hunks of chocolate where I could) ..







Then I had a little jump on the jumping castle ..







And took a silly photo of me and Tee (Rex wasn't there, but I will be sure to take funny photos of us next week at her daughters birthday party. When you are the sibling of twins ... you have GOT to be fair.) ....






I ALWAYS pull that face in photos. Mr TC hates it, which makes me do it more. He calls it the Jocelyn Wildenstein face. I didn't like the age spot under my eye, it went SO dark in my pregnancy. And Tee had a strange rash thing going on under her mouth. So we rectified the situation ....






Of coure, we kept looking at the photos of ourselves and PISSING ourselves laughing. The group of women behind us were looking at us, bunch of boring turds they were.

One kid was a no-show ... Michael. At the end of the party, Tiger went up and got his lolly bag from Tee. I was just about to say "Can I have Michaels lolly bag" .... when Tee handed it to me, without saying a word.

Inner child? Man, I'm trying to find my inner adult!


(Tomorrows post ...... one poor unsuspecting woman said too many innappropriate things about Mr TCs cancer .... AND BEARS THE BRUNT OF MY RAGE.)

I love to see you and your sisters having fun. Makes me miss my sisters so much, though. Awesome show and tell and I'm so in love with that cake idea. Brilliant!

Delenn said...

Love the cake!

MrsSpock said...

Sister Tee has quite a good idea for a cake!

Hmm...I don't think you are quite the crazy cat-face lady yet. Maybe after a plastic surgery or ten...

Wordgirl said...

I so want to be at that party - I love the image of you and Tee laughing so hard together.

As for the crazy cat lady --yikes. My brother always makes this joke about certain women he knows, parents of the kids he teaches --and he always puts his hands on his cheeks and pulls all the skin back towards his ears while talking --

It never fails to make me giggle.

Dude, that looks like an AWESOME party! I want to go bounce on the bouncy thing!

Count me in as one who wants to know how to make the pinata cake. Because that just looked like so much fun. I especially loved the candy on top. Yum!

I love that cake idea. As the someday host of a boy's birthday party, I'm going to snag that idea and be mom of the year.
