that craft'n'movie shindig...


they came, they crafted, they watched movies, they ate a lot of sugar, they left...




I had a helper, we oscillated between dealing with the demands of 7 craftin' children ("MORE STARS NOW....please" - oh what lovely manners they have!) and making mulled wine...("I think it needs something else" said Clare "more wine?" said I - amazing the improvement another bottle can make)
it wasn't as traumatic as I had expected, and the kids had a lot of fun...

(The Reva Girl is already asking when she can have her next Christmas party, don't think she quite gets the "[insert annual celebration here] comes but once a year" concept, yet)

After we'd cleared up from that me and Mr G went out to a party of our own - the annual Pink Christmas party thrown by our friends Wolf and Ms D. We had delicious food and far too much pink champagne and pink russians (my god they are easy to tuck away) danced and chatted until the wee small hours. There were two rather large hangovers in our house on Sunday (that hangover preventing milk thistle must have been watered down) which caused the kids much delight as we ignored all domestic chores (too hard!) and any need to go outside the front door (too bright! too cold!) in favour of lego building, rocket driving, camp making (great for a sneaky lie down), card creating and sewing machine driving...I don't think Ms Reva got out of her pyjamas all day. Will have some photos of the results of the sewing tomorrow...they are funny
