It was yet another 'No Wives Club' Birthday yesterday. There has been so many celebrations this month, that I have lost count. Paul was celebrating reaching the grand old age of 60.
It was a brief catch up with Dawn yesterday, who Darrell hasn't seen since he returned from the UK. Dawn has been busy working, as the summer season kicks in, here in Spain. The weather was perfect, so we had a few pints, sat outside Zest, putting the World to rights. Dawn's husband flies in tomorrow, so there will be one less 'No Wife' for a while!
Yet another May Birthday to celebrate, among the 'No Wives Club!' Katie celebrated her 27th Birthday, arranging a party at her home in Gran Alacant. It was a fabulous evening, as her husband Andy hosted a BBQ on the solarium; each of us bringing something to the gathering. Many congratulations, for your Birthday on Saturday Katie; thank you for your hospitality, as ever!
So yesterday I reached the grand old age, of 46, not something I was looking forward to. To be honest. Since I reached the age of 40, I haven't really celebrated Birthdays. I don't see the point of celebrating, getting a year closer to death. That sounds morbid doesn't it; it's not meant to, just a fact of life!
It was Michele's Birthday yesterday and her husband Paul invited the 'No Wives Club', round for dinner, to celebrate. It was another relaxing evening spent with friends, on Michele's special day. Paul cooked spicy chicken, prawn and chorizo and his famous garlic bread, which is to die for. Lots of chatter and conversation, it was another wonderful day, spent in pleasant company, here in Gran Alacant. A very Happy Birthday Michele!
Today, I have the hangover from hell. I have spent most of the day in bed, after going out with the 'No Wives Club' yesterday. We started off at the Sunset Bar, in Carabassi. It has just been taken over and recently reopened. The outside looks fantastic; a lot of hard work has been put in to the new decor; it looks great! It was a bit of a shock to see my old work colleague, Laura working there. I used to work with her at Dunbar's, last year. It was great to catch up; she's a lovely girl!
