Well alot of people will know that we have spent this weekend in Ireland. I can’t tell you how many people knew about this but I managed to keep it a total surprise from Ian.
Ian and I flew out on the Friday morning and I took him to Bewleys in Grafton Street for his breakfast (which was delicious) and I even went into Penneys (Ireland’s equivelant to Pri Mark) and had a little spend.
We went to Bray on the Friday and had a lovely roast chicken dinner from my Aunty Vera (with sausage meat stuffing mmmmmmmmmm) and then went out to the pub.
Saturday we went to Balbriggan (nearly bumping into Rachel Murray at the train station!!) and had the best night ever. Ian thought during the course of the afternoon I was ‘doing something’ at the local pub but never suspected what was in store for him. Having the boys in Ireland at the party was the icing on the cake for him – so a huge thank you to Trish.
This is advice to anyone thinking of arranging a surprise party – be warned, it’s so stressful. I was a nervous wreck on Saturday afternoon worrying Ian would bump into someone. His best mate was in his hotel room waiting for us to leave the hotel bar so he could go and watch to football!
Well I had apologised to Ian for all the text’s i’d sent…………………….. Ian check the O2 account this afternoon, well I sent 175 International Texts on Friday and Saturday!!!!! Oops. Well, I think it was totally worth it.
Photo’s will follow, I’m sure. Just wanted to thank everyone who helped pull this surprise off and to thank everyone who went making it such a special night for Ian.
Mind you, it shows we are getting older. It is Monday afternoon and Ian and I are still trying to recover, a true sign of a good party though.
