Party Party

We're home again after a good weekend in Perth.
The CFFL draft went well, I was late so I missed all the votes not to change the rules! but was there in time to pick my team. I paid $20,000 for Johnathon Brown and got to keep Gary Ablett as my franchise player, not a bad result.

With Sally and Warren we went to see the Sculptures by the Sea at Cottesloe, with a little more time to appreciate them than I had on Thursday. While the rest of the familie(s) had Mad Lilly's Burgers for tea I took Fashion Boy over to Ballajura for Jarred's 21st. I stayed for a couple of hours and saw one of the simplest but most touching speeches ever from Jarred's older brother Ryan as he expressed his love and appreciation for his family, it was very moving and Ryan's weren't the only tears.

This morning we ventured out to the swap meet at Belmont. I didn't buy much, just a couple of toys for my office, and the bargain of the day, a pair of floral Doc Martins for Mrs Holt-Press, the right size and all, for $5!!!!!!

We spent the afternoon at Alex's 40th birthday party which was really good, catching up with some old friends and people we haven't seen in a long time. Al also made a very touching speech.
Unfortunately Fashion Boy pushed me into the pool while I had my mobile phone in my pocket! Bye bye mobile!!!
I had a bad headache so Mrs HP drove as far as Bunbury where we stopped for noodles for dinner then I was well enough to drive the rest of the way.
