just have to laugh.....

17 March 2007

Brent turns 18 ... requests Pizza and chocolate pudding for tea...... then leaves for Waikerie with Alex.

The rest of us prepare his birthday meal....Ian and Briony drive over to Berri to order and collect Pizza..... Mitchell and I bake the chocolate pudding...and answer each and every birthday phonecall.... Ian arrives is waiting on the bench...chocolate pudding is in the oven.....Brent is still missing.

Finally....the back door rushes Brent .... "cant to get to the drive in" .... we eat alone...photograph his pudding without him.... clean up... and sigh!.... happy 18th
Ian and I sort of wait up.... around 11pm Ian receives an SMS.."Im going back to Waikerie" ..... and that was it....Phoosh!!... his 18th was over!!
...he stumbles in today at 4pm..... apparently had a good night..... dishes up a humungous bowl of Chocolate pudding ...and mutters something about feeling bad....

..anyway...its his birthday.... and you can only laugh at how disposable we have become....and then on the other hand be so grateful he still comes home....even if he is late.
So I did manage to scrap a bit today.....

Have a super duper Saturday...
