The date...Early December
The occasion...Friends brought togther in some way by our children.
The result... A good night in together once a year we have been going about 10 years with a theme to make it more fun and cheesy. So, this year how could it be anything else but the 1970s with a Mamma Mia tinge to it. We went for it with 70's inspired food (who could pass up on prawn cocktails, pineapple and cheese on sticks, babysham, cheesecake, vol au vonts, chilli,etc etc), Dr Tom Baker Who, several Agnetas (the blonde one from Abba) quite a few hippies, gallons of blue eyeshadow, a Zaphod Beeblebrox and a very cool miniskirted Janice. A great night. Thanks everyone.
PS Tip of the day...do NOT go out to walk the dogs at 1am wearing Flip Flops AKA hippy style. The problem comes only when you remember said footwear resulting in a swift desent onto bottom and left elbow. The bottom has automatic padding and is fine, the elbow is less well covered and hurts!
