A day in a life.

Yesterday was the climactic result of a few months preparation for something I, with the help of colleagues and friends, planned as a surprise.

Joe is a G.P./obstetrician I have worked with for a number of years and recently he was made to step away from his obstetric practice and focus purely on his GP work because of hospital politics. I might add at this point that Joe has always had an excellent work ethic and has always loved working with pregnant/birthing women and many of us have experienced working with him in a team capacity with great joy.

Yesterday gave us the opportunity to thank him in the form of a celebratory party in a local hall and party we did.

Great music was provided by Dean, who shared his love of 70's, 80,s, 90's and 2000+ music with us all. There was the nut bush, the bus stop, even the chicken dance to be done with wonderful participation...

There was a number of people who came to share their thanks to this great man. There was food galore, lovely sausage rolls and vol au vents, pizzas and dips.... Enough food for a feast, and that was just the savouries.

Dessert comprised of slices and trifle and little cakes and one big big big cake for Joe to cut. He will be well and truly sick of chocolate mousse cake by the time it's done.

I just want to thank everyone for their participation, their food and their fun. Am I right in thinking the kids had a great time too?

At the end of the night we had to clean the hall and restore it back to its former pristine cleanliness and there were many hands to make light work of it all.

Thank you thank you thank you everyone for making Joe's night such a special one.
