I am not 50! I am 25 Times 2!


50thbirthdayparty.jpg

The strangest thing happened to me the other day. Whilst doing the dishes I get a phone call from Cher! (Of course I didn’t really get a call from Cher, my phone number is on the do not call register). Anyway, she had heard that I was busy starting to plan for another A-List celebrity 50th birthday party and wanted me to plan her big 5-0 too. I had to explain to her that this celebrity was a pretty big deal and I wanted to make sure she had my undivided attention after all she is my mum and besides hadn’t Cher already celebrated her 50th? I told her I lacked the ability to turn back time (groan!), but I if I could find a way (tee-hee!) I would be only too happy to help her out for her 80th. I am sure for that one I would reach the stars (stop it!) and give them all to you (where is my coffee?)…

I did feel bad about turning her down but my mum and her 50th birthday next year is the big one for me. It is a bit of a spin out to think that my mum has reached half a century and after many years raising us four kids and with my dad in the military he has missed many of her birthdays and unfortunately will miss her 50th next year, I want to make this one ah-may-zing!!! (Love the Rachel Zoe dictionary). This is a bit tricky for me to divulge too much here as I know my mum will be reading this – we have to have Christmas and birthday presents under lock and key as she is notorious for trying to poke and pry. One year we caught her sitting by the Christmas tree with the cat and one of her gifts and she was “telling off” the cat whilst he was scratching – by scratching I mean my mum was providing direction for the little paws and had “accidentally” lifted a teeny-tiny piece of wrapping paper because the cat “was just snooping and when I tried to stop him, he tore this little bit here”. Dad packed up all the presents and took them in to his office until Christmas Eve.

She is also known for her ways and means of making one talk and dish the dirt. It is almost unbearable around Christmas as we all have to be on guard even more so as my younger brothers have inherited her Spies like Us gene. So I have to make sure I don’t give too much away. Hmmmm…so to throw her off the scent let’s just say:

The party will held either here or there, on a day or at night at a home or venue. Near a beach or park. (I know my mum is starting to get a twitch in her face whilst reading this).

There could be candy jars, or candy boxes.

We could have balloons or streamers, or pom poms.

We could keep it to a beach theme, a British party theme or the Grandkids may think Nan Nan would like a Spongebob Squarepants theme.

Love ya mum! Can’t wait for your birthday next year! xxx
