Core-Party-9715, originally uploaded by Paradise in Portugal.

Well, we had to have a party to celebrate Daniela’s and my marriage so we had a few friends over … the party was actually a run of parties, four days in fact, but these were the core members. This was taken before we sat down for the first night’s dinner; i might post some “during the party” shots but I think I’ll spare you the “after the party” ones ….

A wicked crew! Funnily enough there were no accidents and nobody lost their temper, though at times there was a glut of Chiefs and not nearly enough Indians … Great to have so many old friends here - and their kids - all at the same time, the best birthday present ever!

Only Des would think of donning body armour to load a genny into a van!

While everyone was over we finally sold the old genny - it’s gone for its future life to Guinea Bissau - but the question was - how on earth were we to lift it into the van? The above is the answer; props, wedges, blocks and jacks, bit by bit and watch your toes!
