It's hard to believe but my "baby" sister turned 50 today. Bloody hell. I'm pretty sure last week she was tormenting me on the school bus. Time is a weird thing. Some times it feels like it is an eternity between the times we are all able to be in the same room at the same time. Some times the level of the conversation and the amount of teasing would make you think that only yesterday we were all living under the same roof. Tonight much focus was on the dress code. The birthday girl sent us all a text asking us to "dress" for dinner. As opposed to rocking up naked or in our PJs which naturally was what we had all planned for a night at a nice restaurant. We knew what she meant but that is never a reason not to tease and have a debate about definitions. Finally the edict was at the smart end of smart casual. And in the end I think we all scrubbed up pretty well really, especially given our advanced age. And of course we took the opportunity to eat, drink and be merry as well you should on such an occasion.
