Another BBQ

I know I know. Not ANOTHER barby at the Triffitts but yes we did it again. Tonight we had Jasmin and Robbie, Mick and Kate, Dan and Tom and Tash for tea. Tom used to live with Jasmin and Robbie when he was doing his apprenticeship so it was good for them to all catch up but you would not believe the most AMAZING thing of the night...................


Wait for it all you pregnant friends......................................

Tash gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy yesterday at 10.30am weighing in at 9pound 5 ounces and TODAY, yes today she came out at midday and kept our tea date for tonight.

She was due on Friday and I had invited everyone last week and joked to her that I would completely understand if she had to miss it if she had had the baby and so it was so totally unexpected when she text and said was the barby still on. I said she was CRAZY but she looks great and the labour was not all that easy and quick either.

Now don't think I am clucky but I got to hold a 32 hr old baby in my own home and I was even able to give him back. Then to blow me away even more when they were leaving, Tash tells me that they walked up from their house, about 2kms away and would walk back home again.

I would like to think she could just not miss my awesome cooking but somehow I know you wouldn't all believe that. Jackie's breadsticks were a hit as usual. I think I can cook them with my eyes closed.

Poor old Kate who is on the other end of the baby pendulum had to use the bathroom after tea because her morning sickness is still not the best. Hmm I hope it was the morning sickness and not just tea!!

Anyway it was a lovely night and even though we did not get to use the deck because it was too windy, we all had a great time. No more BBQ posts for the rest of the month............. I promise!!

Dan brought his new dog Cora - she is a gentle giant. Our cats disappeared for a few hrs though.

Tomorrow I am taking the kids to Bridport with Collette for a few days. Only 3 days as blogger withdrawal symptoms will set in otherwise.
