After months of planning, the big barbi day had arrived!
I spent a manic morning washing floors and puppies, last minute salad prep, etc. People started arriving at 1pm and it didn’t stop.
I think it all went rather smoothly excepting Mirinda’s mammoth shopping expedition. I really only needed French loaves and barbi tools. I think she bought Sainsbury’s out!
Bob was fantastic standing in as cook and Claire spent most of the day chatting to Beryl, Peter and Sherry. She also cornered Karen for a while.
Nicole looked lovely and Stevie all fresh faced.
The large BPP contingent seemed to enjoy themselves.
Dawn, Nick and a few others watched Southampton lose and go down. very sad.
Lots of people bought presents for the puppies.
Carmen behaved very oddly. I think she was worried about the state of the pack. There’s been a lot of disruptions lately (and more to come) and she seems to need a lot of reassuring. She spent a lot of time in her basket whimpering and chewing on toys.
Day-z, on the other hand, continues on in her mindless cuteness.
I drank far too much, ending up watching Indiana Jones 3 with Denise. Mirinda put herself to bed quite early.
A very successful day.
