Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday it was my Birthday and also the second Anniversary of my blog... YEAH to both!!

We had a wild and crazy party on Saturday going on till Sunday morning around 3 am. Wow, what a crazy bunch was here, we danced on tables, drank so many shots and shooters that most of us 15 party animals had to recoup all Sunday before feeling human again ;-)

I don't think we ever went through so much alcohol on 1 night as Saturday, my friends can drink!! The only thing is when you reach a certain age, the drinking is not the problem, it is the feeling you have the next day that is so much worse than when you were 10 years younger!! Luckily I felt OK, a bit of a headache and tired the next day, but that was it... some of my friends felt worse though and were really sick.... that's what you get when you mix so much drinks and party too wild for your body's sake...

Here some pictures of those crazy but FUN friends who were at the party!

Dirk, the bartender giving Marta a drink.



Gustavo & Luciano.



Lane, Nadeem & Dele.



Maryam, Candice, Marta, Tehmina, Stella, Dunke, Hyun, Felicity and me.
The new Legal Aliens :-)



Toasting on my Bday.



Dancing and posing.



Dunke and me. That's how it all started with the 2 of us and a bus ride to Sophia Town...



Nadeem and the girls.



Dirk and the girls.



He likes it there!



This was all still before 12 o'clock... so not my Bday yet. Now it is getting wilder, need to wait for more pictures from my friends cameras, since I don't have much on my camera after this point.... to be continued!

It was such a grand party, we found a really great group of people to hang out with, and I know for sure there will be many more parties and get togethers with this crazy bunch out of all the corners of the world!! Thanks guys, for the fun party!! I hope you didn't feel too bad the next day... ;-)

Then another topic, my 2 year Anniversary of Funky Doodle Donkey!
Wow, I can't believe this is already going on for 2 years! I love to be part of the blogging world, meeting so many nice and interesting people this way and want to go on for many more years. I am thinking of changing the blog lay-out a bit this year, and taking the blogging to a new level... how I don't know yet, but I need to change a bit I feel...

THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING MY FRIEND OR FOLLOWER!!
I really appreciate your friendship and interest in my blog, my life, my ramblings....

Life is Good!

Gefeliciteerd!

It is fun to be able to celebrate with a great gang -- it looks like a great gang on the photos!

Having lost my roots a long time ago, I have found that in my wandering life, living in foreign countries as an expat, you often end up making friends with a very diverse and interesting group of people. The kind you might never encounter on your home turf.

Enjoy your friends and have a great third blogging year!

Looks like a great birthday gathering! One of the things I miss about SA. The get togethers. Gatherings in the UK never seemed the same and here in the Netherlands it's a completely different world again.
I'm glad you had such a good group of people to celebrate with.
