Party Time
Posted Saturday, 13 June 2009 at 11:36

My Saturday blogs are always going to be local.

We had a party last night. In Westoning.  I gave a speech at lunch time (more later) whizzed across country and arrived back in time for the start.

We have this party each and every year.


I hate parties and weddings.

I think most single people do. It's that sinking 'here I go again' feeling as you walk in through the door, knowing that the evening is to be spent circulating and mingling amongst tables of happy couples, almost all asking the same question "anyone special in your life, Nadine?

I'm thinking of getting a big badge made which says,  No! There isn't - just to save them the bother of asking!

Last night, the anticipation was doubly difficult, for obvious reasons. There are usually 70 at the
’Jazz in the garden and pig roast’, last night there were 125.

I was given 125 hugs and kisses and a few thousand warm and caring words of encouragement, affection and support. 

How many times have I blogged what a wonderful association I have?

The food was amazing, the wine flowed and everyone was in a very, very happy mood.

Tributes to Pippa, Andrea, Sue and Anne and of course Andy and Anne who gave over their home and garden. You all worked worked very hard indeed.

Sat on my patio typing this there has just been a tap at the door.

On the other side was a 'giddy school boyish' (his words not mine) man stood with the most beautiful bunch of white roses and purple flowers tied with string. He claims he was just passing the door and had these flowers in his car and did I have any water?

I have to admit, that is funny! And a nice start to the day :) 

Now I have to prepare for another party. This one is in honour of three hard working Parliamentary candidates. Here I go again! Where’s the badge making kit?

I understand your feelings about parties and weddings entirely. Fortunately, in my own case, I have developed such a strong reputation as a "loner" that people stopped asking me that sort of question a long, long time ago. I don't even have to wear the Clint Eastwood poncho these days…

I know it's not your favourite newspaper, but the Telegraph has a list of the UK's 50 most eligible bachelors, if it is of any help to you. Fortunately (or unfortunately) the eldest is only 49,that's Simon Cowell. On the bright side, he is veeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrry rich. :-) I'm surprised none of them have come knocking on your door.....
