tachikoma: celebratory

In which I claim success

It’s taken me three days to recover from the largest party I’ve ever organised.

The bloke has the misfortune to celebrate his birthday on the day after Valentine’s, otherwise known as the Bogus Holiday Which Shall Not Be Mentioned In His Presence. This year is his 30th.

The Great Organisation started innocuously enough. Collapse )

Astonishingly, we managed to get ourselves out of bed for noon the next day and meet family (including parents this time) for a pub lunch, cake and several rounds of Lego Star Wars on the Xbox. We concluded from this experience that there’s nothing that a good Bloody Mary won’t sort out.

I had a blast, but if this is what planning a wedding is like, then count me out.
