Dear Lovely Subscribers
I really screwed up today and POSTED my blog that I had written in advance for Saturday, when I only meant to PREVIEW it to see if the pics were in the right place. Goddam words starting with the same letter…
This is what happens when you’re diligent and trying to get ahead with your work. Poop.
Anyway, so I’m terribly sorry, I did try and stop it, but it seems that Saturday’s column will land with you on Friday morning. I have re-set it to go out at the usual time, which probably means you will get the same one again. Oh lordie.
What a cock up, but I’m still on a big learning curve here and it’s great fun doing it with such a lovely bunch of people as you lot.
By way of compensation, here are some pics from my Christmas Cocktail Party to amuse you.
Sven – the front bloke in the Speccie Boys pic here – mixes a mean Dirty Martini and we had a few. Then we had a few more just to make sure they were as nice as we thought they were and then, good heavens, is that the time? Hic.
The chap with me here, with the shoes – which he arrived in – is my lovely friend @squaddietony. His husband is third back in the Speccie Boys pic, @dbrown_esq. Both worth a follow on the old Twitterati.
Do you love my vintage coat? It’s a recent arrival and je l’adore. £18. Why would you shop at Primark? And it seems to be a happy coat. Three wears and so far I have always had a good time in it.
Here’s a better one of Tony’s shoes. I changed mine, for better contrast. Being in fashion and all that. And he seems to be holding a bottle of champagne now. Well, yes, it was that kind of a party…
These pics – in my kitchen – where the best party action always is, were taken by Sven’s lovely partner Pam. Shame there isn’t one of her. She’s gorgeous.
