Pre-Christmas Get-together with the Neighbours

Sometimes, all the signs are that it’s probably best to stay under the duvet. This morning was one of those times! We retrieved the Polo from five-days of ‘intensive care’ at the garage, only to find that after taking it for a spin, the exhaust system fault light re-appeared. Then, just as we were heading for Homebase, we got caught in a massive traffic-jam on the A45, that left us at a stand-still for over an hour. Plenty of police cars, an ambulance, an umarked police car and a helcopter suggested it was serious. When we got to Homebase, we fouund it had closed… for good!
…back in 2009!!!!
I must get out more!!!

Onto happier events. Trish and John hosted their annual ‘neighbours’ Christmas event’ - and with John acting as Taxi, we got down to the serious business of eating, drinking and being merry straightaway! Trish had put on a full Christmas Roast, with every vegetable known to Man, followed by a Christmas Pudding, then a cheeseboard, and finally a few (Christmas) Spirits. It was avaried evening with topics of discussion ranging from football managers to HRT via Bra-fitting! (the copious amounts of alcohol may have helped the tranition form one subject to another!) Tom was in fine form with his impromptu (impossible to sing-along) singalongs, whilst we all discovered more about our friends because exiting the dining room for the loo, was only achievable by going UNDER the table (Hmmmm warm hands Tom… well I think it was Tom!)

For us, it was the perfect tonic after this morning’s ‘motoring events’. By the time we left, it was well past our sell-by date, but fortunately, Rhiannon was on hand to act as Taxi, and get us home. I think it was 1.15am when we stumbled through the front-door!
Thanks for hosting Trish! We had agreat time. Happy Christmas everyone!!!
