Oh Birdie.

23 Nov

Oh no. I just went and disappeared again. Whoopsie.

I find it hard to blog when I’m not at home. Does anyone else find that? I went down South for a fabulous surprise party for my boyfriend’s parents. It was their 30th Wedding Anniversary, impressive, huh? We should all learn something from them. Not least their ability to keep their cool when a bunch of people they haven’t seen for a while shout SURPRISE. Their very own son did exactly the same thing for me for my last birthday in Korea. SCARIEST. MOMENT. OF. MY. LIFE. TO. DATE. They took it much more gracefully than me. The party was in Dover, and I received a lovely text message welcoming me to France and telling me to enjoy my trip. As much as I appreciate Orange’s attempt to make me feel at home, I’m not sure I feel so appreciative of the European prices.*

I’m keeping this short and sweet, because today is my Papa’s 60th Birthday, and I must go and spoil him. Hope everyone is getting over that mid-week hump. I have that lurgy that is going around and my nose feels like it’s going to fall off with blowing it. The Rudolph… not my best look.

*I’m doing a good job of teaching you guys recently, don’t you think? That’s why my students always called me ‘AMY TEEEAAACCCHHHEEEERRR’. Today’s lesson is Geography. Dover is in England. Not France.

Boots: Tesco, Tights: Marks and Spencer, Dress: ModCloth, Scarf: Topshop.

    Cute dress! I like the pattern mixing. I’ve never been thrown a surprise party. I think I’d like it, though. Minus the peeing yourself part. You know. And yes, it IS hard to blog when you’re not home…I remember when I’d go visit my ex-boyfriend, we’d have to make a special trip to a place with internet just so I could blog for a few hours. My priorities were right on, weren’t they?

    Happy birthday to your dad!

    P.S. I got your email and will definitely include a surgery story. 🙂

    Lurgy? I love this word. I’m going to try to make it a common American word now. Thanks, Amy teeeeeaaaaacchhheeeeerrrrrrrrr.

    You look too cute in that dress. Love the boots and that ring is so awesome.

    I love the pattern and style of your dress. It suits you so well! I also like your jewelry – it’s whimsical, fun, and unique (just like what I’d look for in jewelry).

    Happy birthday to your dad!

    Happy belated birthday to your dad! I can’t believe orange thought you were in France when you were in Dover, the prices to send texts and calls must have been crazy! I love your dress, and your tights go perfectly with it!

    lovely sweet dress, you made it look quirky chic with the cute mix of patterns and colors. Nice, I like it. The purple tights are fabulous. You’re funny. ha..I hate surprises too, I always warn my husband not to pull any on me. His friends do it to him all the time, and they once appear at the door while he was at home in his boxers. Happy birthday to your papa! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Love the bright colors on that dress & super cute boots. A surprise party sounds fun, I always wanted one but the only one I got someone ruined the surprise before. Oh well… someday. Thanks for the lesson on Dover too, I really had no idea, oops ; )
