LO is celebrating a significant birthday.
Tonight we have a small, informal gathering for family (those onshore) and a few friends. Low key, not late, not too much to drink, which always has the potential to turn in to something that is anything but.
Tomorrow will be spent doing the finishing touches to the party preparations, before we then go and have some fun. 8-10.30pm includes selected children, and the special guest*, they the in-laws and children depart and the party starts.
We have E's sound system, which is a mini PA system bigger than many of the venues I played in my band days, so while the volume does start at 1, I fear that certain individuals (not least my little Welsh friend who is a fiend for sneakily turning up the volume) will ensure it is on its way to 11 later on.
We have a bar, and a food selection area, and 2 waitresses to collect coats and to distribute nibble and drinks.
We have enough booze to sink a battleship.
And we have our costumes.
Let the festivities begin.
Have a good weekend, will update you on all the shenanigans on Monday. Or Tuesday.
===================================* it is secret, so more on Monday
