And Birthday GIRL fun!

I never told you about my birthday!  It was on July 7th and I had a very nice day.  I went into the city in the morning and had a nice massage.  I also had lunch at a little cafe overlooking the ocean.

When I got back to the center, Fiona, Sarah and Naomi had planned a  little celebration for me with the boys with cake and juice and popcorn!  So fun!  Joao Macamo had somehow obtained a bar of soap to present to me for a gift!July parties 032








One of my chefes (dorm helpers)July parties 034 has recently completed a cooking course and had shown me some photos of some dishes he had made which looked wonderful.  so I asked him to cater a little evening party at my house.  He worked all day!  I think he started at 1pm and the party began at 7:30  Here's the master at work:  July parties 041


He made six different plates of food!  This just shows four of them, the pizza and the other yummy tomato/egg dish was still cooking. 



A lot of friends came over, July parties 043
