♪ 100th Birthday! ♪

Oh Goodness, I haven't blogged in a few months now, but I did not vanish! I always read my followers blogs! Don't worry~  ヾ(*´・3・`*)ノ Actually this blog is a bit delayed itself, and a lot has happened between now and uhmm, when I last blogged. My life is rather hectic suddenly, with one thing or another but I will probably explain in another blog post! (o・v・人)♪
On July 10th, my Great Grandma celebrated her 100th Birthday! We visited her on her actual Birthday, and had a party the following Sunday where we had Family from all over the UK and Europe (well, Italy) came to visit her! It's rare to celebrate such an occasion, and she even got a card from the Queen herself! Which was amazing to see in person, usually you only see it on the News, rarely!
On the following Sunday we had the Party! It was held in my Grandma's home, she lives with her Mum, so it was the best location too because her garden is super big! We had a huge gazebo and it was a bit like a Tea Party - with no tea.. and only one cake.
My Aunt and Uncle supplied the food, and we did the decorations. Sadly I don't have any photos of the decoration - or food. I actually didn't take many photos at all. (_ _ ||) It was difficult because I didn't want to seem rude by using my phone often. 
YUM YUM WATER, due to personal reasons I shouldn't drink alcohol, even a low percent, well I lie my shandy at home is 0.05% alc so.. at the party I was limited to water and flat warm cola. Which I wasn't happy about considering my Family know my situation r00d.
Ta-da~ cake! We also supplied the cake, which was pretty amazing! I mailed a photo to my Boyfriend and he was impressed with the size alone because it was a three tier cake! Yummy and sickly sweet. The cake had "rolls of film" around it, to show my Great Grandma's 100 years of life, or ATTEMPTED to, granted cameras had not been so popular back in those days, and some film had more than likely been lost over the years. Anyway the cake had Family photos and photos of places my Great Grandma had visited all over the world. Hearing her stories is always great, even if her 'today memory' is fuzzy, she can remember something  60 years ago perfectly!!  
It was a long day, and afterwards we helped clean up and move stuff back to the original place in the Garden. It was super tiring, so I had to sit back indoors and rest. This feeling of constant lethargic is really dragging me down.. until I get mounds of energy which just pisses people off HAH. It was a really fun day~ even if I didn't know 90% of the people, even though I may have met some of them, fifteen years ago.
