It was really great of Rosi to offer to host a get-together to celebrate Ann’s Birthday. We don’t need much of an excuse to meet-up with the neighbours – so this was just perfect!!
We took Karen and Paul with us for the short drive and we arrived there about 7.45.
All the gang was present – Rosi, David, Debbie, Stefan, Karen and Paul. Julie and Tom arrived a little later. Rhiannon and Alex were also there showing their expertise on the Wii. From what I could see, it was a good job I wasn’t invited to play as their scores were a lot better than mine – embarrassingly so!
Once we all got chatting, it was clear that most of us were affected directly or indirectly by this current recession. The food lifted our spirits big-time, though; it was, as always, superb! – especially the meat, that was tenderer that a tenderised thing that’s fallen into a tenderiser!
I managed to avoid the temptation (just) of any of the desserts with chocolate in them – but it was close! In the end, I settled for Karen’s brilliantly smooooooth cheesecake.
The time flew, as it always does when we get together – before we knew it, it was almost 1am – and given that the clocks go forward tonight, I knew we would be trashed in the morning!!
Update: Sunday – yes, we’re both completely trashed!!!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
