And down came a spider...
... yep all the halloween decorations are now packed away,
... including the giant spider in the middle of the clubhouse dance floor, and all the cobwebs (some intentional... some not!), all the balloons have been popped, all the fake blood mopped up and the bats, ghosts, witches, gravestones and broomsticks put away for another year! And all this was accomplished during the major clean-up at 7.30 this morning whilst sporting a serious hang-over! Unfortunately we were let down by staff at the last minute, so I had to become a great many different people during the course of the evening. Barmaid, doorman (lady), dancer (someone has to get 'em going!), raffle ticket seller (folder and caller), glass collector, judge (best children's costume/dancer) and toilet paper re-stocker, to name but a few! And all this was achieved with great success for a brilliant family fun evening.
Of course at the end of the night I also managed to have a drink (or two) and when invited (along with a few like-minded grown-ups) to partake of a night cap (or two, or more... alot more!) it would have been rude of me not to have trotted along with everyone else to said caravan and continued to over-indulge until 3 o'clock in the morning. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with myself for managing to get up for 7.30am and get on with the job of cleaning. I do have to state though, that now I am feeling rather tired! I probably wouldn't be quite so tired if it wasn't for the fact of having to cook Sunday lunch for my delightful children and their repective other-halves, having to do the washing-up as AND "could you just do that bit of ironing for me, please mum?"
No day would be complete, however (no matter how tired/hung-over one might be) without the completion of at least one card. I managed two!
Early night for me... I thinks!
Blah... blah... blah...
