Let’s Party!

Everyone we’ve spoken to today have said they are going tonight when we asked.
The marquee tent is up, bales of hay are in abundance, and the plastic chairs have been set out. There are even lights strung across the marquee entrance.

We saw the Chinese catering van yesterday, but are unsure whether it will be on a massive take-away status or hot plates and grills in a mobile kitchen.
Last year, the canopes were cooked on site, and they were delicious.

We went out this morning and by the time we got back, there were only three parking spaces left. As is always the case, the magic word determines a good turnout.
freeThere are many familiar faces that I can’t immediately put names to, but then we haven’t seen them for a year. There are also a lot of new faces, and I have just made friends with two. They are a pair (unrelated) of huskies and are absolutely gorgeous. I am a sucker for dogs, and they sensed it, so I got leaned into, sniffed, and tail thumped from both sides.
Her ladyship of course was not impressed when I returned to the boat, and as is her way, demanded my attention in taking her up to the dog walk where she performed to perfection just to prove a point (ie. that she was a good girl and could be lovely too).

This is the second day I have been walking without a stick. Hubby had noticed I was leaning, thus making me limp, so he said either two sticks or none, so I am trying the latter. So far, so good and only the occasional twinge coming down the gantry as it’s such a steep angle.

The bash is due to start around 6.30. Our official invitation says there are refreshments and entertainment, though we intend to take up a couple of bottles of water as we’re not drinkers, and I have some nibbles in reserve.
We have prepared ourselves with a good breakfast and a snacky lunch (I used some syns) so that we can enjoy ourselves without having to worry too much about consequences.
There is a pleasant breeze on this beautiful sunny day so all being well, it should be a good evening.

Note:
This post should have gone out yesterday but with large numbers of people on our wifi server, it kept bombing me out!
