Bit Of Me Time

Searching for more time …

It’s party time


It’s a Wednesday Witter linky with Hello Wall.

This Wednesday is party time.  When we moved four years ago we had a housewarming.  We are lucky enough to have a large garden (almost a field) and we made good use of it by filling it with children during the afternoon and our friends during the evening.  It faces South West, so the light was beautiful and it was a definite success.

So a year later, we thought, let’s do this again.  It rained and rained and rained.  Husband was under a gazebo with the BBQ and everyone else was huddled inside.  Friends rang to ask if we were going ahead, “of course” we said, and a few more squashed in.  The rain stopped as the last person left.

The next couple of years had better weather conditions, and so to this year.  We’ve watched the forecast, rain, heavy rain, heavy rain and more rain.  Yesterday it was forecast light rain, with some sun!  This morning the forecast is not so good.  We’ll do a sun dance and hope that helps.

Then there’s the house to clear and food to organise.  With it being a bit of an “open house” and not getting a “full house” of RSVPs, we’re never sure exactly who to expect!  So it’s a simple fare with donations in the forms of bottles welcome.  Most importantly, it’s a chance to catch up with friends before the madness of the school term is upon us.

This photo was taken this morning after returning from Jodie’s walk, even she was not happy to be outside in such a deluge.  Perfect weather for a BBQ I’d say?!!  One friend asked if we are taking the British Approach to the party or doing the sensible thing (ie cancel).  A) we are not sensible and B) we are British!  The party is on.

So it’s fingers crossed for some better, drier weather and I’m off to tidy, sort and shop…..

  1. And a great party it was too! The sun shone! xx

  2. Nothing like having a party to lift up everyone’s spirits when the weather is gloomy and the Summer is already turning to Autumn. Hope you had a great time!

    • Thank you. After walking in a complete deluge of rain in the morning, it was a bit of a miracle that the sun came out just in time!! It’s a fun time because we all chat about the holidays and nobody is in work mode yet!
