It was a quieter night than we’d expected – the teenagers spent the evening watching films and eating popcorn. Since they didn’t go to bed until the early hours, it was almost lunchtime before they appeared next day. Isabella was almost exploding with anticipation about piles of interesting parcels….
Later in the afternoon, Cali accompanied her friends on the first part of their train journey home. We met her at her best friend’s house and the 5 of us went over to Pizza Hut for dinner. No record of our booking and lots of things were unavailable on the menu (plus a hiccup with the bill total!) but fun was had by all. Cali’s face was a picture when the cake was brought out under dimmed lights as the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday..
