SUR-PRI-ISE!!

No photos, but a quick post to say that we had a fun night last night. We had our dinner and sat down to watch a DVD as we do on "Friday night movie night" at home. We don't have TV, so our weekly viewing is watching a movie on Friday night. This week it was Matilda, based on the story by Roald Dahl. Not long after the movie started, Roger noticed someone was here - he could see car lights out the window. We got up and looked out the front door, as a heap of cars pulled up. People got out shouting "Happy Birthday Roger!"
I think we did a pretty good job of keeping the secret, despite having a six-year-old in the house who asked Daddy that morning "Is it your birthday party tonight?" and a three-year-old who said he would tell Dad it isn't true, and then telling me within Roger's earshot: "We made a cake for Dad's birthday and it is in the bedroom". I quickly started talking loudly and cuddled Hugh to stop him talking.
Thanks to everyone who came and helped to celebrate Roger's 50th birthday. His birthday is actually on the 23rd, but we will be away then (Roger and I are having four nights in Esperance for his birthday present) so we got in nice and early to surprise him.
