A Bush Birthday!

Yesterday was both my mom’s, and Alastair’s birthday!  Two very special people :)

The bush can be a bit limiting when it comes to birthday celebrating, but we didn’t let that stop us.  I surprised Alastair with his present first thing in the morning.  I had commissioned a man in Koidu to construct a raffia ‘loveseat’ chair for outdoor lounging.  It came out even better than I’d expected, and, most importantly, Alastair loved it.

We had morning glory muffins for breakfast, and pizza for lunch, and, of course, birthday cake after dinner (fitted with a candles from home).  Alastair even received birthday cards from his family that were carried from the UK by the bosses that are currently visiting the camp.

The pineapple upside-down cake was a hit.

The happy birthday boy :)

It was a great day, and now we’re able to sit on our chair and enjoy every day even more.
