engagement party recap

October 6th, 2009 at 08:04 pm

It was nice to be on the recieving end of a pile of gifts; usually we are the ones giving to everyone else.

Our engagement party went well. Everyone behaved themselves and the weather was lovely. DF got there 2 hours early to get a table and pretty much all of the food got eaten, which was nice. (Usually have WAY too much food - but I think I have worked out the formula now Big Grin).

We recieved:
A blanket
A boardgame (Sequence)
The Cook's Companion by Stephanie Alexander
A slowcooker (I gave our other one to my mum a while ago as it was too big).
A six person setting cutlery set.
Assorted cooking utensils.
$190 in Myer vouchers (a higher-end department store)
$200 in Bunnings vouchers (hardware/homeware chain)
A set of dip/cracker & olive plates.
A painting

and we have another gift coming from DF's sister.

A couple who we had not seen in a while came along, but as the wife was pregnant and due, they left quite quickly. She had been having contractions that day and the night before! I couldn't believe that they actually came along, and they had an hour drive ahead of them to get home!
She gave birth the next day to a healthy boy.
