POKERFACE MEETS LADY AGA....
I've got some friends coming round later for an evening of high jinks. We're celebrating some recent birthdays and rather than hitting the local eateries, they requested I cook a 'special birthday meal'. No pressure there then. The Domestic Goddess will be on full throttle shortly as soon as motivation sets in to hit Tesco on a Saturday morning with a winning smile and not on ounce of impatience.
Our get togethers tend to have the mandatory elements of:-
1. Bubbly (lots of)
2. Food (lots of)
3. Special basil (don't ask)
4. Card games (lots of - pre drinks)
5. Guitar jamming (lots of - post drinks)
6. Singalongs and getting the lyrics wrong (lots of - post, post drinks)
7. Laughs (lots of)
Just exactly what's needed after the week from Hell at work. 'Looking after my soul' is just what a very lovely and very wise doctor ordered me to do the other week and maybe tonight is the step in right direction for doing just that...
