Luckily it is not as big as there VE/VJ party where we cooked for 150 people plus, still busy enough for us.
We are having the four veterans around on Christmas Day for Dinner and supper, which is the least we can do.
My mother is well and in a good mood as they changed my fathers Doctor; the new Doctor claimed my father does not need all these mass of pills he had to have, or so he was told, so the Doctor stopped them, he is now like a sports car and we have never seen him so well, in ages.
Mother is having a New Years Day dinner, and the veterans and us our going as well, which will give us a break from cooking.
Alfie is coming around on Christmas day as he wishes no doubt to get his Jeep, but has promised to serve the veterans, nothing hot of course!
He also wishes to stay here as he does not want to get involved with "girlie things," his sisters will get.
So although a lot of work, I am hoping that everyone will enjoy themselves and as Churchill said the veterans will have their "Finest Hour."
Here is a picture from our club on the Ve\VJ day party, the hats went down well, although they were plastic, and this is only one side of the club and not the other bars.
We do hope you have a wonderful and warm Christmas and indeed New Year.
Our most Kindest Regards from the whole family and I have bought the cats a Christmas present!
Neil & Sarah!
p.s Wish us luck.
