I think he had a lovely day, presents, pizza and chocolate cake (favourites) and his friend round to play from 2pm to 8pm - we did ask him if he wanted a birthday party but he said he didn't... (he's not really a party kid, seems to prefer just hanging with his best mate Aidan)...
Nan and Grandad came over and then James and Leanne arrived after work in the evening.
The two boys had 'party food' (junk) and I cooked a Malaysian Beef curry for us adults, with curried lentils as a side dish, mixed salad and nan bread....everyone seemed to enjoy it, so that was good.
Djamel got some lovely presents - thank you to everyone, much appreciated....
Great (huge) selection of spy books and cash from Nan and Grandad
Paintball guns and a new gaming mouse from Auntie Sarah and Manolis
Book voucher from Lou, Cash from Hazel, Cash from Riad, Cash from Jacqui,
Lots of books, PC/X box games, Nerf Dart-Guns from Mum and Dad
Nintendo DS game from Aidan
Hoodie top and a WWII Gas mask from James and Leanne....Yes! Really...:-)
Djamel collects WWII stuff. He already had a helmet and some ammunition cases and he'd asked for a WWII gas mask for ages (he saw one in Gloucestershire when we stayed with Lou last August)...
I asked him if he'd had a nice birthday and he replied 'Actually it was a REALLY nice birthday' ...so, like I said - it's all good :-)
Grandad reliving his childhood - again :-))
