Last week The Thinker turned 13!!! Hard to believe that I now have TWO teenagers in the house. He had a party with his friends at a laser battle place on the Friday night. After two games we gave them all dinner in the food hall and had some cake. They all had a GREAT time! We didn't opt for the official party at the game place as it was way too expensive and they only get a tiny meal. Definitely not enough for a pile of teenage boys! The boys all thought it was wonderful as they ate a HUGE meal each from the turkish place. It is a very small and quite food court and I think the owner of the Turkish food place thought it was great that we were buying lots of dinners. We were originally going to get pizza and bring it into the food court as it was cheaper. But while they were playing their games we were beginning to feel very guilty ... we know very well what it is like to be a small business in this day and age and we just couldn't bring in food. In the end I am glad we didn't as everyone was happy all round and the guy who owns the food store was so appreciative he gave us PILES of chips and some turkish delight as extras.

On Saturday morning the teenage gene kicked in :-) The Thinker slept in .... he NEVER does that! By the time I had to wake him up, I had showered and dressed, set the table, AND made the waffle batter! He was supposed to help me with that. But the waffles were delicious and for once everyone was too full to finish them all. Good thing cold waffles make a nice snack :-)
Then is was time for presents. We gave him a gold chain. A special present to commemorate turning 13! All up he scored lots of iTunes cards, money, gadgets and clothes.
Happy Birthday to our Thinker!!!!! Love you lots.
