Then, I got into the kitchen and started making the icing for the cake. It did not quite turn out as it should have... That took a while and then we all sat for photos and snacks and cake. I had just had my breakfast so I was not interested in the snacks but the kids ate it up so that was good. I had a piece of cake and coffee though and forgot to serve the ice cream!
Then we preceded to the gifts! I got some lovely gifts.
Larissa then took the kids to her house and off my hands so I could have some 'Mommy Time' but I did not know what to do with myself! Then, after about 30 minutes of alone time in which I touched up my make up, Sarah came over. Sarah is leaving for the United States to embark on her University career. I am so happy for her and she brought me some chocolates from a new Omani company called Tamrah (which means 'date' as in the fruit) and her very, uber, very, super uber Abaya for me to go get copied. This will be my new Wedding Abaya. Gotta have some fancy ones for these occasions. Having said that, I have not worn an Abaya to the last two weddings and n'er another one in site!
Sarah teaches me how to put on 'Arabian' eye liner and I filmed her! So my ole self won't forget now!
Then, I made a very 'special delivery' and off I went to meet Larissa and the kids at the cinema. We did not see what we wanted to see as I waited too long for the idea and now that we can order cinema tickets online; they sell out fast. So, running late as I was, I notified L and she ran to the cinema earlier than expected to get us tickets. I got there and met Amal and Paulina and they had what I usually like to have, which is a Pepsi and Popcorn. The kids were so sweet because they mentioned that they had remembered that I mentioned a few days ago that I wanted Nachos with Jalapenos the next time we went to the movies but forgot when in line. My point in this information is that it is so nice to be considered and thought of.
Then, Larissa and Paulina and the the three of us parted ways and we went and met my husband for dinner. It was a wonderful day as it should be on one's birthday!
Thank you for all the wishes and birthday greetings from my Facebook friends.
For some uncanny reason unbeknownst to me, I haven't heard from my parents or sister yet. Have they forgotten me? Is it true, 'out of sight, out of mind?' I'm off to call them in a minute to make sure they are well and just forgot about me, yep, little ole me...
Thanks for stopping by and do leave me a comment!!
Believe me people; I can do a MUCH better job decorating a cake. The icing went horribly wrong but the taste was good!
