As i started typing I was wondering to myself why my fingers were so sore until I remembered the 60 balloons I blew and tied up for Ariyas party.
Both girls had a good afternoon sleep which allowed us to get heaps done, me with the balloons and snacks and Seerung with the food for the adults.
She had some presents arrive by mail in time which was an added bonus. Thai people (especially those outside bangkok) do not celebrate birthdays at all so what was really sweet was that the other people who turned up also brought beautifully wrapped presents that Ariya really enjoyed. Sister in law Mam and her husband Somboon have been to Australia twice to visit us and attended a few kids birthdays whilst there (including Ariyas first) and obviously observed all the present giving that goes on and passed the word around.
They say a picture tells a thousand words so I will let these do the talking as my fingers hurt!
