Thursday’s child is full of….

Sorry blogosphere enthusiasts, short on time time because….two one day to go until the party! Don’t know who’s turning up yet, so it will be a surprise for all of us.  Last week I took delivery of a new marquee, one of the 9×3 meter jobs, dead cheap.  Put it together this afternoon, very simple and easy to assemble but it took a long time, mainly  because of the creaking bones and tired limbs. Oops! Going back into that age thing again.  No don’t feel too bad really, just got loads more to do.  Olympic theme with games of course including, egg-and -spoon, three-legged, sack races, Jenga, golf putting, hula-hoop, badminton, skittles and loads of other typically English back garden sports. I’ve got toy medals, chocolate medals, made a podium with an O*ym*ic symbol on it.  Loads of food and booze – should be a blast!

Catch my after party blog and I’ll let you know what went on. I beginning to regret my promise of ‘a blog a day’, it can’t be done I now realise.  Still here are some picture from Fran’s new camera to compensate:

    Hope the party goes well Clive. We were still toying with coming down until I read this about the party plan with all the silly games,etc. Definitely not our thing, let alone the dressing up bitl! Still, got to be an improvement on our first ever party at Lackford hey! There is -or was – a room available at the Ramada in Farnham for £69 if anyone is interested. Andy S

      Hi Andy,

      Sorry you feel that way, the games are just for laugh, no compunction to take part just get a drink down you if that is your bag. There are quite a few kids coming as well, so the games should keep them amused. Anyway hope to see you soon.
