My mum had brought along her trademark veggie sausage/cheese rolls and fairy cakes and my sister had made calorie dripping banoffee pies. Along with all the food I'd been busy preparing, we had quite an impressive buffet. It was lovely to see everyone tucking in.
I'm not sure what was different about our karaoke system set up this time compared with other occasions but it was quite difficult to hear the backing track when you were up on stage. This resulted in the most tuneless performances ever. Nobody minded. There was lots of dancing and fun and I for one thoroughly enjoyed myself.
My little girl had a blast; running around with helium balloons, dancing, singing and eating cake. As we left at the end of the evening, she turned around to look back at the hall, waved and said "Bye, bye dance"
I had enough left overs to keep everyone happy snacking today and enough helium for another party. I'm not sure I'm ready for another one just yet, but soon...
