Winter Solstice Party



Thanks for braving the foul weather we're having. Boy will take your coat upstairs, come in make yourself comfortable. Have a drink. Have several more. There are munchies on the table. I suggest you get stuck into the mince pies and cheese straws before Dave, XL and Cogidubnus start fighting for pole position underneath. Also, Savannah and Beth will need a space to dance later.




It's good to see you. I hope you have a great time tonight. If you do end up sleeping in the bath. There's a lovely cafe up the road, I promise I'll wake you, hose you down and we'll go have breakfast.


Blessings of the Winter Solstice to you. May the Sun return with Light and Warmth into your life and bring you love, laughter and prosperity.

    Merry Christmas to you!

  2. PHEW! Sorry hun! My head has been burried in Uni work and Yule knitting but I'm all done and all yours. You may want to put this in the fridge for later - I know how you love red velvet and I brought a little something with me. I'm sure you'll find a use for it ;)

  3. xl ~ Firsties to you, both on here and under the table! What food/drink would you like me to pass you?

  7. dave ~ I'll whisk it away before it gets crushed.

    scarlet ~ for Heaven's sake be gentle with him, he's not a well man.

    dave ~ no you wouldn't want to do yourself a mischief.

  8. Heard the fun halfway down the road, you sure know how to throw a party! Where do you want the Sambuca?

    ReplyDelete
  9. curious ~ we've not even got started yet! You can put the Sambuca as far away from me as you can manage. If you set fire to it, please do it outside.

    I'm not sure it's a good idea to have a naked flame anywhere near XL's outfit.

  11. savannah ~ welcome my darling. So glad you could come. Please give it awhile before you start dancing on the table, have a sausage roll, have some mulled wine.

  12. Hello Roses, I am so sorry about Oz's over zealous greeting of your cat. I'm sure it will be down off the top of the Christmas tree shortly. We've brought some goat's cheese nibbles which are delicious and some red wine. There is also some Bakers Complete Sh**e, but that may have limited appeal.

    ReplyDelete
  13. mrs rine ~ hello my lovely. It's fine, the Cat will calm down eventually and Oz is very enthusiastic...about everything. Lily is sooo patient.

    I'll put the goats cheese nibbles on the table, along with the Bakers Complete Sh**e and see who gets drunk enough to eat them.

  14. Guten Abend ... the door was open, so I simply slipped in. WHo's that person with them firestarters outside? I brought a bottle of Franconian wine, a nice Silvaner ... you look very nice my dear.
    Hai XL, all well down under? That was cheap I know.
    Where's MJ, I thought I had heared the staccato of her heels, hello savannah - is that Southern Comfort? And what is that music like .. like, yea ...

    ReplyDelete
  15. No flashbacks to the sixties here - because (a) you've got no Red Barrel (what good taste) and (b) There are no Party Fours or Party Sevens in the second photo...

    Nonetheless what a party...Even the cat's enjoying a diet of Cherry Brandy!

    Goodness that Hottie's well named!

    But who are the bunch of loud and aggressive p***heads just passing the house shouting at the top of their voices? Oh...sorry Dave, didn't realise they came from the local seminary...hmmm

    Tiring now (can't party on like I used to)...

    Just nudging that xl bloke aside and making myself at home...oh hell...Why's the foot of my sleeping bag so bloody wet? Oh... sorry... wretched cat!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Seminary? Katholische Klosterschule maybe ... Seems that I'm the last man standing round here... yeahyeah this song from Dido and all that "I'll survive" and Earth Kitt, and this ABBA special from eleven to twelve ... mind if I sit here quietly and have my wine, found some old lps over there, like Dupree, knew that you had some Zevon somewhere ... HA - Chappo ... let's skip Stella Maris please, an old doors number, pretty long. And a single you have too, nice one, sorry too loud now, nah that stomping is just me dancing ...

  17. i've got my second wind1 let's dance! xoxoxxo

  18. Sorry about that, I must have nodded off. I'm such a lightweight these days. Good job Oz and Lily and the Cat don't mind my snoring.

    Good grief, Mago. You're still going strong. Where do you get your energy from?

    I'm going to make some strong coffee...anyone else want a cup?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes please... and a fag.
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  20. ms scarlet ~ I'll get you a cup. Which fag do you want, we've got several lying around?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Bugger....have i missed the flaming Sambuca

    ReplyDelete
  22. Excellent party Roses. Who would have thought Dave and Rog would have done such a good rendition of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody? And fancy the Bakers Complete Sh**te being such a popular nibble! Wasn't it lovely to see Cat snuggled up with Lily and Oz, ok they did have Cat in a strangle hold, but I think they meant it in a friendly way. Thanks for inviting us!

  23. Ow my bl**dy head still hurts...

  24. Damn it! Late again!

    I sense a pattern emerging here...

    *wanders off to arm oneself with black binliners & multi-purpose cleaner*

    Great first pic though :o)
    I have stolen it & may use it as my computer background.

  25. I can remember notghing of the events of the last 48 hours. I assume that means it was a good party.

    ReplyDelete
  26. sarah ~ you missed my gagging noises. Curious has a lot to answer for.

    mrs rhine ~ I'll never be able to listen to the classic version again. Just goes to show men never truly grow up. I must check my teeth, I remember biting into something crunchy, think I've chipped my tooth.

    cogidubnus ~ have some orange juice and a couple of paracetemol. Should help.

    g*n*d ~ honey, you're such a star! But if you can identify this stain here, you'll also be a scientist and a scholar. I was here and I have no idea.

    OKAY you lot. Who spiked Dave's drink?! I told you he's teetotal. For a bloody good reason, I might add.

    For those of you who stayed to clear up, I'll get some nibbles on and I've been wanting to try that recipe for mulled cider.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Blimey, some of these drinks have left curious stains on the glasses. I'm having to scrubb really hard to get them all cleam. Pass me some more washing-up liquid will you?

    ReplyDelete
  28. dave ~ here's the Fairy Liquid. Do you want some marigolds if you're going to be washing up for long?

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's OK, I brought my own. Always prepaired, I am.

    ReplyDelete
  30. dave ~ you're such a good boy scout.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You should see my woggle.

    ReplyDelete
  32. dave ~ I'd rather not. We don't have THAT kind of friendship.

    ReplyDelete
  33. dave ~ isn't it always?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I actually totally missed the party didn't I?

    I've been rubbish lately but I'm glad everyone else had a good time xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sorry I missed your party. My office party went on longer than I thought. Just like yours it involved someone singing Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Hope you had a great Winter Solstice.

  36. beth ~ *sniff*

    sanddancer ~ what is it about that song, that everyone feels the need to murder it?
