Preparation H

The plans and arrangements for PrettyBoy's 21st birthday (on Valentine's Day!) are coming along. I love how the brain-work and the creativity is left to we women to fathom out! Then again, we really DON'T want the men to interfere too much anyhow, so we can use this kind of thing in future slanging matches! Sadly, we left it too late to find a local venue to have it in, as Valentines Day parties are still a big deal these days. To make matters worse, PrettyBoy's mate Chops (who'll be 21 on the 13th!) has a ruptured appendix and had to cancel his celebration abruptly. 

Anyhow, a last minute limo's booked and a surprise tour is on the cards and while he is out and about with his chosen family and friends, (me and the cheaper half not included ) we're going to gatecrash the charity night for half an hour (Adam is having a half-hour set with The Valentines there), drive him there and we'll all (well, nearly all!)  fill wurselves up with cheap booze and then head for home (me carrying the snare and cymbals on route) while the young ones party on in a nightclub, and I blow some balloons and things for his return then celebrate in my favourite style - under the duvet (alone).

My own little pain-in-the-arse is fast becoming a man.

Aww! I love your warmth and devotion to your son. (I'm just messing with you, I know you like the planning and partying.)

Lena - Hi Hen! Sorry, meant to respond to you sooner. Been a bit busy of late. I was really touched that you pinged me a couple of times - a true Glaswegian making sure another is okay! I'm going to post again soon, just wondering about the angle I will take about it so faffing about and procrastinating as usual. Hope you wee pain in the arse has a great birthday - we all remember our 21st - the rest is downhill from there on!

Thanks Hen.
