Arnie, who plays rugby with Nathan and I have known since University planned a surprise party for his girlfriend, Loreen's 30th Birthday. I have gotten to know Loreen through our Accie's girls get togethers and she is lovely. She didn't have any idea about Paul's (Arnie's) plans. She was well and truely surprised.
All of the rugby couples met at Dan and Emily's new house for drinks before we went to Hawke and Hunter. It was so lovely to see everyone and catch up on all the news. There must have been about 15- 20 of us there and then we all made our way up to Piccardly Place to join the party.
