So after a not so good start of the birthday for hubby, it went good on the whole for hubby minus me. Because as soon as I started for work, I saw I had a flat tyre. So off I went to the puncture guy and see this huge line of cars waiting for getting their punctures repaired. On asking how"Kitna time lagega?", he said 1 hour! I just rolled my eyes and told him that he may just change the stepney for me. For that also I had to wait in scorching sun and really bad humidity for 30 minutes before he managed to change it. By the time it got done I was already a blob of wet tissue with sweat running down my back, my tummy, my face, neck..just everywhere!! And to top it, my A/C is not working since its gas needs to be refilled! Bah!! When it rains, it pours!
So after trying to stay awake at work after getting to sleep just for 3.5 hours the previous night, two 5-min snoozes not included :P, I reached home by 6 PM. Did chut-put chores and started to get ready. This time instead of having the party at home we had it at my Appa's club. So I was spared of all the cooking and running around in this bad heat!
The party went damn well. The food was yummy as always! We hadn't ordered cake this time. We always do but Hubby asked not to this time. I don't know why and somehow I also didn't ask him why shouldn't we have one. Betu was clearly disappointed and so were a few other people! :)
We had chilli-potato, tandoori aaloo and hara-kebab for snacks. Ginger-fizz and aam-panna for drinks. For the main course we had Salad, dahi bhalla which was changed for pineapple raita when it tasted slightly funny, kadhai paneer, corn-palak, dum aaloo peshwari (stuffed potatoes), rajma masala and peas pulav along with assortment of rotis (missi roti, butter naan, lachha parantha and tandoori roti). And it was rounded up with Kulfi for dessert.
The best part of the party was everyone got to relax an chit chat to the heart's content.
I had carried betu's crayons and a notebook to keep him busy. He had a company of a little girl "Shubhi" who is exactly one year older to him (They share the same birthday date except the year). And they had a blast playing together! So that gave me lot of time to sit and talk with all.
I haven't been able to download pictures yet so they will follow in the next post. Hopefully soon! A wonderful party for sure it was!
