Come sit under the apple tree, and celebrate my birthday with me!

Dear ,

You are invited to join me on 5 March 2011, from 2 pm, for a garden party with the usual good homecooked food, and merry company!

Food will be provided in the accostumed abundance - including approximately five variations on apple pie, apple sauce, baked apple... you get the idea. Please bring your own drinks!

The address is 51 Wakefield St, Featherston. If you are coming by car from Wellington, take the first turn left after passing the Featherston town sign (roughly opposite the turn-off to Martinborough), then drive straight ahead until you see a large sports field to your right. My house is on the corner diagonally opposite, with a cabbage tree in front.

There is also a weekend train service which leaves Central Station at 10 am, the return train leaves Featherston at 5.50 pm. From the Featherston train station, walk across the car park and straight ahead to the other end of the big sports field on your right. Or contact me to find out if you can share a ride with another guest!

Why not combine this with a visit to the Martinborough Fair, which is on that same Saturday from 8 am. If you fancy a proper weekend in the countryside, you're welcome to stay over - there are limited sofa and mattress-on-floor spaces available, or you can pitch a tent in my spacious backyard. Own bedding is advised, though some can be supplied for emergencies, or the very spontaneous. :)

Arohanui & cheers, Astrid
