Springing a surprise ....

It's just gone 7 o'clock p.m, it's Monday evening,it's warm, it's dark. We are all huddled in her dining room, quiet as mice...the cupcakes in the middle of the table, the nibbles and sparkly  beside the glasses,that her son and daughter and friends have been busy preparing for them...we wait, and wait,'they're here' comes the voice from the girl hunched up under the kitchen window and she scuttles on her hands and knees to be with us and hurriedly closes the door.
We hear the key go in the front door and no one breathes.
'Well that was a nice drink' the keys hit the table - any minute now......then the light goes on and the door opens...Oh I wish I'd have captured that moment when they saw us..
The surprise was for Deb and the surveyor for their 30th Anniversary.It was organised by their son and daughter and they did a good job. Mum and Dad had NO idea and it was lovely to spend the evening with them.....what really really made me smile was when Deb and I hugged and said hello, her frst words were ' I do hope you've bought my kit from the class at the weekend !'
I've got permission to share,so here are some of my pics of the evening....
Hope work isn't too busy today Deb... after those summer hols..:-))) xxxx

Thanks for sharing these, I'm still trying to get over the shock! Going into work this morning was awful. Thank you so much for coming along and making it a very special evening. You were there at the wedding reception back in 1980, it's only right you were with us last night as well!
