15 women (and one man, TLS);
9 bottles of wine;
2 bunches of flowers (received, with thanks!);
48 chocolate brownies – demolished;
1 large leg of lamb;
2 boxes of chocolates (“as it’s chocolate covered fruit, does it count as one of my Five a Day?”) – also received with thanks;
1 plate of donated chocolate crispie cakes – diabetic coma? Optional extra;
A lot of laughter!
1 cardigan left behind in error;
Bed at 3am.
A lot of washing up the next day … but all very well worthwhile.
Thank you so much, everyone – you’re the best.
