Days that matter
Today is Rachel’s birthday.
She’s heading out the door to church with the boys and I’m staying at home…. supposedly to do some house work and also because it’s only been a week since chemo and I’m *cough*cough* not feeling too good *cough*cough*.
Truth be told the last 4 weeks I have been on a marathon planning crusade to organise a surprise party as well as a few other bits and pieces. Rachel is a very social creature, not like me at all in that regard, and thrives on the company of her friends. While a good number of them can’t be here for the surprise due to the fact they live in New Zealand, there’s enough people that love her on their way to make it worthwhile. She doesn’t know it yet but in 3 hours there’s going to be 25 adults and kids running around, playing on a cool little bouncy castle, eating fully catered food all served to them by wait staff, a selection of imported beers (don’t worry, I don’t drink) and of course, excellent New Zealand wines to toast the birthday girl.
I’ve got to go and organise the last few little things. In the meantime, here’s a video I made for Rachel as a birthday present. Kiwi people, keep an eye out for a special guest…. and some guy that calls himself ‘Wolverine’?
