Sorry, I know you all must be getting sick of hearing about Lloyd. I’m almost sick of him myself. Almost. But last weekend was his 21st birthday. So of course there was a party. And of course I have photo’s. Now lets see.
Okay, well this is the Goon Punch. In case you weren’t sure what you do with it, you drink it.
If I remember correctly, that little beauty contains 80 litres of the cheapest wine you can find, 2 litres of the cheapest vodka and 2 litres of the sweetest orange fizzy drink known to mankind. I said to lloyd, what was that cement tub used for before this? And he said – I don’t know, we found it here, but we cleaned it thoroughly with Exit Mould. Hmmm, well I guess that explains the bubbles I saw on the top. Then I said – why don’t you take the ice out of the bag? And he said – because people try to scoop it out (god forbid!).
Here’s Merrin having a scoop or three.
Here is Lloyd with two of his friends. We don’t know their names but to us they will always be known as The Girl Who Eats a Lot and The Girl with Awesome Shoes.
Honestly you have not seen anyone put away party pies like that little blonde girl can. Actually about fifteen years ago at Lizzie’s birthday party one of her friends put in a solid effort at the party food table and we still call her The Pie Girl.
We’re hoping that The Girl with the Awesome Shoes took them off before standing in the kiddie pool. Because mothers in their forties worry about things like that, whereas teenage girls who have had a few plastic cups of goon punch do not.
Aww, this is a nice one. This is Lloyd and his friend Nick. They’ve been friends since they were 12 and they love each other. Actually they live together, with the girl in the pool in the black dress. Thats Nick’s girlfriend. And in the background you can see Mathew smiling. He’s been friends with them since then as well.He’s had cancer since he was 12 and it’s all been a terrible battle and he ended up having to have his arm amputated but his father modified Guitar Hero so he can play it with his feet and according to Lloyd – he is awesome. According to me he drinks a lot of milk. Whenever he came to our house he drank litres of milk. Oh, and thats Cath looking all sentimental. She was Lloyds preschool teacher and we became friends and now she’s like family.
Now this one is interesting. Here we have Lloyd and Nick and the two girls there that you can see were their girlfriends all through highschool. Like I mean for all of high school. Years and years.
Nick went out with Lauren there in the cute blue pantsuit and Lloyd went out with the blonde Clare. And they are all still great friends and even though we all hope that one day Clare and Lloyd will realise they are meant to be together and just get together, I don’t think it will happen. It’s always very strange to see these young people, you have known since they were tweens, as adults. Lauren has just finished her teaching degree at university. It does my head in to think that soon she will be Miss Jackson.
Oh this one makes me laugh. Here’s Clare again. As you can tell, she’s studying diet and nutrition. You can tell that by the look on her face. No matter how appealing and jaunty Cath tries to make those cocktail frankfurts look as she hands then around you can just see Clare thinking – do you guys have any idea whats in those things?!
But we knew our place. Basically we turned up early, cooked food, served food, cleaned up food, then got out of there and let the young’uns start the party.
oh well c’est la vie
OH, lol, please excuse my enormous bony hands. Just be warned that if I do punch you it probably will hurt as I really do have massive knuckles.
