My Birthday & Housewarming Party
For my 34th birthday party back in June of last year, my friend Valerie came up with the idea that I should combine it with my housewarming party. I went along with Valerie's good idea, and I also decided that after we had a party at my flat, that we could all head to the Tickled Ivory bar to continue the celebrations there.
By June of last year, I had finished most of the basic work on my flat, so it was ready for a housewarming party.
I arranged my Birthday & Housewarming Party for Saturday 19th June, as my birthday last year was on a Tuesday.
I sent out lots of party invites via the Facebook website and by email.
I bought lots of food, and drink, and I spent most of that Saturday morning preparing and cooking the food, as well as rearranging the living room to make space for my guests.
Lushele was the first to arrive at my party.
Mark just had laser eye surgery that day, so it was good of him to come along to my party that day. His eyes were swollen and bloodshot. He couldn't stay long due to his operation, but I was pleased that he had made it.
Ian bought me a bottle of raspberry flavoured Absolut Vodka and a miniature tea set with tiny cups, saucers, and teapot. Ian said that he couldn't find me shot glasses as a present, so he bought me the mini tea party set instead. It was fun drinking shots together using the mini teapot and cups and saucers.
Lushele had bought me a nice Hugo aftershave set, which included Hugo shampoo as well. It was a very nice gift, as I wear Hugo a lot.
Other friends bought me bottles of drink, cooking utensils, and other nice things.
I put on some dance music, and everyone was enjoying themselves with the food and drink on offer.
Some of the girls disappeared into the kitchen and then brought me out a big chocolate birthday cake complete with candles, which I blew out and they sang happy birthday to me. It was very sweet of them.
Later on that evening, we headed to the Tickled Ivory bar. Damian knocked on my neighbour's door, then run off on the way out, which was funny.
A girl I knew called Dominika who was working at the Tickled Ivory bar, was also celebrating her birthday there, it was her 25th. She is a fun, pretty, bubbly, blond girl. We met up with her, plus her brother and sister. Dominika was dressed in a nice black dress. She is a nice friendly girl.
My friend Valerie was also in the Tickled Ivory bar. She greeted me, and I introduced her to some of my new friends.
We had a dance on the dance floor, and some more drinks and then decided to continue the party back at my flat. Valerie sadly couldn't make it along to the party in my flat.
The party and drinking in my flat continued until the next day, it was me, Lushele, Ian and Russell who were the hardcore ones left.
We all got quite drunk and had fun taking photos of each other.
Ian was the last to leave at around 7am in the morning.
It was a great way to enjoy my birthday last year. I’ll have to think of something special to top that, to celebrate my 35th next month.
