Sunday morning we discovered that Rebecca had been up all night with a stomach bug, she was in a bit of a state, still being sick. Quick phone calls to the campers trying to decide what to do. The decision was to go ahead without Rebecca as friends had journeyed up to Cambridge over the weekend. I have never known a morning go so quickly, time was not our friend. Tim and Rufus came and took over Laurie whilst Rachel, myself and Peter made a start on getting things setup. Tim's mum turned up early to help out with the boys and by 11:15 I was still whipping cream, in a frantic state. Words were had and I apologise to anyone that came across the edge of my tongue!!
By 11:30 all was done, quick change and you'd never know there had been a panic. By this time Rebecca had stopped being sick and made the decision to get up and have a shower to put in an appearance after the food, do her 'bit', then go back to bed. Everyone was understanding, and I think had a good time. The birthday boy certainly seemed to enjoy himself and the bouncy castle was a huge hit. Our garden is just made for parties when the weather is kind.

Thank you all for coming and making it such a special day. Its just a shame that the hostess missed it all, so much work had gone into the planning but I hope that we did her proud.
NB: Rachel popped in this evening and thinks she may have pinpointed what made Rebecca ill. A fish burger on Friday lunchtime is looking to be a culprit as she commented at the time that it wasn't very hot.
