Octoquits Together At Last

Good morning....here we are all in Month 2, even if it is just for one day before Sue leaves tomorrow.

I've cleaned up and decorated the bar. Black Tie do today so the champagne is here to welcome everyone in and the string quartet is in the corner.

Soosy has done all the catering, the cakes look amazing Soosy.

Enjoy everyone, we deserve it, November is now behind us. :D

Love to all....xx

  • Bloody hell, who thought we would have got this far!! Aren't we clever girls and boys. Right I will unload the van (car too small for all the wine) and I've invited a few live bands (I'm a rock chick myself) to play through the day.

    Let's party.

  • Congratulations to you all, you are a great, strong group, it's great watching you add on the days, weeks and now a full month.

    Wishing you all success.

    yuo lot keep eating Cake each month ever thought of sharing starving here !!!!

  • Haha, poor Jack.

    Please excuse my lack of suitable footwear - apparently I threw my only pair of heels away last year in a slightly drunken fit of disgust.. ..

    So with that in mind... here's a lovely tune to get us in the mood

    Two Bare Feet

    Smells from the kitchen are mouth watering Soosy

    I've bought trays of mezze and some lovely fresh baked med bread with olives. That will go lovely with the quavers Dee.

    Now then......... where's Sue? Not like her to be late to a party

    Help yourself Bradders, there's plenty and it's not exclusive ... just adhere to the dress code or there will be trouble from Lorna and Christine :)

    Oh yes pint of Boddy's and nice slice of cake always works for me Lorns

    thanks guys

  • I'd try the chocolate rum torte and the lemon drizzle cake is good too......

  • Is the Chocolate and Rum torte real (I mean real real?) because the one on the bar is absolutely divine....... chocolate and rum, a heavenly combination.

    I'll have to give you a recipe for Brandy Alexander or some such named pud. Looks like a posh cheesecake but has no cheese, just oodles of cream, cocoa de-la-creme (or substitue with Baileys and Tia Maria for the commoners like me) and eggs.

    Hark at us talking about baking..... more wine and music I think ;)

  • ok Guys, finally got here... what, no-one's opened the bubbly yet? What sort of party is this?

    Hey, where's Dee, she's promised the first dance to me. And Kay? Where's my quit buddy - we must dance.

    Ok, so it's that sort of party. Drinks before dancing ..... I can adapt. I see the bar is empty as the ladies are round the cake table(s).

  • I'm not around the cake..... I've already eaten the bottom layer and bloody delicious it was too. Did you lot not see the fact that I'd bagsied it earlier? Have topped up from the bar and now ready to get on with the party :cool:

    OK.... Dave..... dance, once you've twirled Dee around that is?

    Music up Christine.......

  • OOO I missed the party :)

  • Not like me to miss a party - congrats to all of us on getting in Month 2,

    Sue

  • Sue, we missed you :(

    However, we have nipped up and prepared a few things for you. Your very well set up for Month 3. You will not be left short of celebratory drink or cake:) .... If you run low, give us a hollow.
