I had a germ of an idea about two months ago. I would have a drinks and eat get together just before the big day. I invited those that I have had the pleasure to get to know this year, and old friends too. I had loads and loads of time.
Then horror of horrors it’s this weekend.Where do I start? Do I do the shopping first, decorate the tree, clean the flat, brush the dog.
Have I got enough seats, definitely not. Glasses. Will have to go to my friendly charity shop to see what they have got for sale. Last weekend there were lots of lovely glasses for sale.Drinking out of glasses is so much nicer than the plastic ones I always think.
What about food? Sausage rolls, crisps,the ideas whirl around in my head, particularly in the early hours of the morning.
So far have bought some food, half decorated the tree, haven’t got round to the dog, and cleaning is still on the to do list.
I don’t want you to think that I’m not looking forward to the drinks and nibbles because I am – very much.
To those who are coming and who may read this blog, look forward to seeing you soon.
