Oh well, as promised the post about my birthday / our housewarming party. My plan that day was to take some tea in the afternoon with some friends, and those who'd like could also stay for the housewarming party that evening.
I was a little stressed out at first when the teatime
started, because it's quite some time ago that I held a real party with
more than 5 people, so I first had to find my groove. In the end I was
quite thankful for the helpings hands who supported me. The teaparty was
held in the room of one my roomies, because he has couches. And a
coffee table. And a TV, although we didn't use that one. I was putting
on vinyl in my room, Beatles, Elvis and so on. It's a habit of mine and I
think the others liked it too. I think. Anyway, of course there are
photos! I didn't make them though. I just gave my camera to Marie and my
cousin Katrin and they made all the photos with my camera. But I have
also some photos who were made by my friend Carina.
First I show you the coffee table:
Nici and Carina baked me a cherry chocolate cake with Game of Thrones
motif (it's the direwolf of the Stark family, my favourite family). It
looks great, doesn't it? Was also super tasty! Another good friend of
mine and her husband baked a vegan chocolate cake, which was very yummie
as well. I didn't bake, ha! I just bought some cupcakes, which you can
see in the picture too. Somehow I ended up eating them sometimes,
because no one else would. I guess I won't buy cupcakes again, when no
one wants to eat them... the excuse that they look so pretty doesn't
count for me anymore!
So we just talked, ate cake, drank coffee and
tea. I was very happy that all these wonderful people came and spend
some time together.
I didn't make a photo of the presents I got
for my birthday, though some people asked me to. I actually enjoyed them
mostly for myself, but I can say that I got quite a lot of awesome
DVDs, nice english books and a beautiful art book about Renoir. The only
thing I have a photo of is the present I bought for myself. A selfmade
analogue two lense camera. See the picture below.
Yes, I put this together myself. Like Lego for grown ups. I think all
together I needed around 4 to 5 hours. But it was worth it. I love it! I
didn't start to take photos with it yet though. But soon...
Here are also some photos of the people who were there.
And well then, the afternoon was over, the evening started with the housewarming party and everything went into a big blur...
Cheers indeed, mates~
