I have been looking forward to tonight for over a week! My friend, Sharon, is having a chocolate party! Although I am not sure that I shall be buying anything, I know that it will be great fun, just as her chocolate party last year was.
When I got home from work, the phone rang, and I answered it, to find Adrian on the other end. It transpires that he is in Cornwall, and shall be within 5 miles of us tonight, so wanted to pop around for a visit.
I explained that I have plans involving enormous amounts of choccy, but that we would love to see him.
Fred went do-lally when he saw his mate, and withing 5 minutes had established a guard position next to him, to ensure he could not leave without being spotted!
I was able to spend half an hour with Ade before heading off to Sharon's for the party.
A table was set up in the kitchen with a large selection of what could be bought, with the emphasis being on children and Christmas.
I know I said I would not spend, but actually I did end up succumbing to some items that were not yet on their web site..... very naught of me, but I could not resist!
A few drinks later, and everyone was smiling at their luck in being able to purchase such lovely gifts.
I was home by 9pm, and able to spend a final 5 minutes with Ade before he headed back up to St Tudy where they were staying.
A great evening. Thanks everyone.
