Well judging by the mess, a good time was had by all!
Cyberkitten pulled my maid!
My valet, Walt, was most accommodating - or so I understand! Amongst others; Dawn and OldOldLady were taken by his youthful charms and - er - energy!
Rashbre turned up with a delicious hamper of food for all including skewered Garlic Chicken with Coriander Chutney; a selection of Peking duck wontons, deep-fried and served with Plum Sauce and rather improbably some mini Yorkshire puddings with pink lamb & minted gravy. Not to mention the char grilled asparagus with the scrummy Hollandaise sauce - the latter were a big hit with Dawn! That girl knows how to party!
Aginoth and Mrs Aginoth took a short break from sewing and the media circus to join us for a few drinks and dave managed to sample most of the cellar!
Kerry left her Little Princess at home and partied down with us, enjoying the champagne a lot!
We were also graced with the company of Paste and Cheeks. The former was, I think, stopping off on the way home from somewhere else. But even in his alcoholic haze, he managed to charm Jane! Being Royalty, I won't harp on about what he did to my very expensive carpet and a Louis XIV chair!
Music included Queen [pokes tongue out at Keda), Nina Simone and The Mad.
Wendy turned up with her film crew and Yellow Rose made it all the way from Georgia, bearing a gift of Krug, Clos du Mesnil [which was duly hidden by me. Here it is, see?
I finally gave in at 2am.......not bad considering certain people had had me up since 3am yesterday morning.......[glares at felines]
Dawn and I managed a quiet blogsisterly moment before I headed off to my bedchamber. Walt and Clara looked after the guests that arrived later.
Cat and Kitty had a late night raid of my champagne stores and OldOldLady came back for more partying.....and Walt from the sound of it!
Barbara, Derby's Mum (Derby is a pal of Charlie Cat's!) and T came later to sample the champagne and dig into my crab cakes, shortly joined by Stephanie and Ribbiticus.
And to top it all off, Rashbre turned up this morning with fresh coffee and croissants for me, Ribbiticus finally found her way back to the drawing room (I think she got lost in the 23 reception rooms!) and Jane popped in to see if anyone had survived.......
btw - has anyone seen Genuine's underwear? Clara??
and now, it being Good Friday, I am going to binge on hot cross buns!
