The evening was great.
Val and her helpers had the hall decorated and the pre dinner nibbles were on the tables.
We got our food contribution sorted and then joined the others.
It was a lovely, cosy, sociable evening.
The children all had a ball.
They were the only children and were certainly not at all backward in their socialisation skills!
We had all brought a gift from the $2 Shop to put under the tree and they got randomly passed around by Father Christmas aka Robin!
If you got something you didn’t particularly want then you could negotiate with someone else for theirs.
The kids did pretty well out of the deals!!
It was great to meet up with old friends.
Some like Gabrielle and Simon who we hadn’t seen for many many years – like when they were barely out of primary school and moved away.
Now they are married, living back here and expecting babe No 1.
There was about 32 of us there.
Valerie had the tables all set up so pretty with checkered clothes and candles etc.
One of the gifts I had bought went to Simon but he thought it suited Azzan much better.
I got Phil to take some photos of us girls.
The first photo was of the table corner – good shot Phil!!
We left around 9:30pm and got back home just on 11pm.
It was a wonderful night
Thanks so much Valerie and your helpers for organising it.
