Christmas Party 2015

Christmas Party 2015

Tonight was the Christmas meeting.  We brought and shared lots of lovely delicious food (can we have the recipe for the sparkly brownies please?) & drank Prosecco & Buck’s Fizz.  That got us in the mood for a game of pass the parcel.

Several raffles were won, including this month’s champagne which had been decorated by Suzie in a Christmas Tree.

We all got to sample and vote on the mince-pie bake-off with coins (which will be added to the Toilet Twinning fund).  Well down to Gill whose fill-pastry pies were the winner, and to everyone else who entered.

The people-bingo was a massive success, with everyone trying to hunt down the elusive bee-keeper.  I was surprised by how many people thought I could speak a second language, ride a motorbike or salsa dance (I can do none of those).  I really do need to add a few more irons to my fire in case we play it again next year, to avoid further disappointment.

We played the Christmas quiz, which gave everyone the opportunity to argue over the annoying answers.  Then finally we were allowed near the home-made Secret Santas, where promises or home-made gifts were exchanged.  I loved my hand-needlepointed gift tags and I know Mandy was delighted with her robin garland.  There were a quite a few happy faces.

Thanks to everyone that came along and joined in with our Christmas celebrations.  We ended with Jerusalem, which we are getting better at!
