Having a ball

The hangover from last night consisted of me eating eggs with chorizo for a salty fix for breakfast, then some jam (eaten straight off a knife from the jar for some sweet) some tea, some sausage rolls, some brownies and then finally some more alcohol. Kids and big nights just don’t mix do they? The 4 hours sleep last night just didn’t cut it.

But what a night! It was a huge success – great food, wine, decorations and dancing – the perfect night. The only thing missing was snow, but the fog in my head all day almost made up for it! Thank goodness it only comes around once a year…
