Another 40th birthday

The lads, Col, Pete, Geoff and Dixon
Col and Margie

It really doesn't seem that long ago when we were doing the rounds of 21st birthday parties. We seem to have skipped the 30th's (too many kids, not enough babysitters) and plunged into the 40's.
This time it was one of my oldest friends, Col. We met in the first week in uni in (hold breath) 1986. His wife Margie ended up being one of my bridesmaid's, although we see less of them now as they live in the hills the other side of Bungendore.

The gathering was in one of the Bungendore pubs, with many old pictures being handed around as well as some very yummy food. A very good night although getting home at 1am did not set me up for a good mothers day as I had to be up by 7am to get Matt to hockey - very rude. ( I will excuse Geoff this year as he had a monster week at work and could possibly have still been over the limit from the night before...)

This was also Matt's first official night as babysitter, to the disappointment of the other two as they truly love our usual lovely girl. I can strongly recommend this as we didn't have to keep an eye on the clock, very relaxed night.
