Made Me Laugh!!!

Well tonight in the deepest darkest part of night before we had gone to bed, Carl and I decided to recycle some of his banners from his 18th birthday. By a strange fluke I have a friend called Sue who is precisely 4 days younger than me. We were both expecting at the same time and Robert was born precisely 4 days after Carl, how strange is that??
Anyway because Carl and I are green Eco warriors we set off for his house and decorated his car. In the process we managed to lock ourselves out of the house and had to wake Tom up to let us in (This was no mean feat, we had to knock and ring the bell, the dog was going bonkers, but Tom slept on!!)
On our arrival we commando crawled up the road being careful to set off absolutely every security light that there was, and there were a few. We had to stifle our giggles while trying to find the end of the sellotape which broke off every couple of centimetres, We adorned the car with yards of 'Happy Birthday 18 Today' silver foil banners. As a nice finishing touch we added the contents of two cans of silly string and a bang free party popper - Giant Sized!!! Unfortunately we thought it too risky to photograph our handy work.
Carl popped his card through the door and then ran back to our car, sounding like a herd of fairy elephants. I would love to see his face in the morning!!!
