Happy Blogiversary!!

Happy Blogiversary to me!!

and
Wendy.......and Mar...........

And Happy Birthday to
Fizzy.......and Wendy.........!!

Time for a party!!



I chose my dress (purple of course):
Walt has been promoted to butler and he is watching over the buffet:

The buffet looks amazing; crabcakes, devilled eggs, pate, creamed corn and all sorts of other things:

Naomi is in charge of the ice-cream and she has organised chocolate and yet more chocolate!


The champagne is chilling in the refrigerator:

Clara is not working tonight as she is resting (pregnant maids need to take care of themselves!)

I have been in touch with the agency and they have sent young Ellie to help out.

As ever, the house is spotless and ready for my friends:

And my gardener has been working hard outside - its looking lovely by night

So let's crack this bubbly and start the party!!

It's almost 2am here in the UK - time to unveil the chocolate fountain for my chocoholic friends in the US

And break out a new batch of pink champagne.........



It's 3am and time I wended my way to bed. Not a bad thing to sometimes give in to insomnia, and this was a perfect excuse.

Walt will hold the fort for any more visitors. Feel free help yourselves to champagne, buffet and the chocolate fountain and talk amongst yourselves..... :-)

[yawn] Happy Blogiversary Wendy and Mar, and Happy Birthday to Fizzy and Wendy......[bigger yawn] and Happy Blogiversary.........to.........me........[yawn]

[pours strong coffee]

Naomi, yeah Walt worked really hard on the buffet. Ellie helped too, I understand..

We're waiting, Wendy...[sips champagne]

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Wendy? Are you going to spill the gossip? Oh Walt... I'll have another glass of the bubbly...!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

CQ---(*whispering*) Walt is looking very fetching...more attractive by the month!

mar said...

Somebody pls take Wendy away from the buffet so she can speak up!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Maybe Wendy is out in the Garden? I'm going to have some Caviar now..YUM!

Radioactive Jam said...

"Hello, Michele didn't send me."

I liked your anarchistic response to this weekend's non-M&G. So - hello, plus! Happy Blogiversary.

Party on!

craziequeen said...

Naomi! [chuckle] some habits are hard to break, eh?

Mar - You know Wendy and food......

Tara said...

*Smooths down her little black party dress and tops up her Champagne for the 3rd time*

Oh hi Al, nice to meet you, I'm Dawn. :)

mar said...

Hi Dawn, what a pleasure to meet you!

craziequeen said...

Haven't you met? Mar, this is my friend Dawn from British Columbia. Dawn, this is the legendary Mar, Emmy winner supreme :-)

Love the dress, girly! :-)

[tops up Mar's glass]

mar said...

Thanks, cq , cherie, I have seen your good friend Dawn around before,yes, but isn't it fun to be able to meet right here right now?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Dawn! Good to meet you, my dear...I hear you are from British Columbia! A BEAUTIFUL Place, yes?

Mar, is that more PINK Champagne? I must try that....This Caviar is fabulous CQ!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Darling CQ..How long will the party go on do you think?
I have to zip back to L.A. for an appontment..and I'll be away from you all for a bit..(Not right away, but soon..THEN, I will return...Having your own "Beam Me Up Scotty" Is WONDERFUL!

mar said...

Yes, Naomi, which reminds me of a pic I took not long ago: Drink Pink!

WendyWings said...

oops sorry got distracted stupid cellphone went off.
Ok somone give crazie a STRONG drink first please.


Johnny Depp is planning to wed his long-term girlfriend Vanessa Paradis in a unique gypsy-style ceremony. After eight years together, the couple will have a low-key ceremony followed by a three-day party feast, inspired by Johnny’s love of gypsy culture. A friend reveals, "We've been expecting marriage for a long time. Gypsies really know how to enjoy a marriage – this one will be the biggest and the best France has ever seen." The pal adds, "The gypsy ceremony is largely symbolic without formal rituals. The men dress in tuxedos and the women in flowing skirts and low-cut blouses. Johnny and Vanessa are free spirits but they are very romantic." The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star (43) and Vanessa (33) have two children together – seven-year-old Lily Rose and Jack, four. Previously Johnny has joked that he wouldn’t marry Vanessa, saying, "It would be a shame to ruin her last name. It's so perfect."

craziequeen said...

[signals to Walt to refill the caviar dish]

mar said...

Tell me Naomi how do we do this: posting twice at the very same time, lol!

craziequeen said...

[signals to Ellie to chill more pink champagne]

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

See? I'm drunk already..APPOINTMENT...LOL, LOL...WALT? Another dollop of Champagne, dear...You are looking quite scrumptios in your outfit..!MMMMMMmmmmm.

mar said...

Didn't know JDepp wasn't married. Why change a good thing?

craziequeen said...

Johnny is marrying his Vanessa?? That's excellent news!

A toast - to Depp and Paradis!

mar said...

Well, ok: I'll drink to that too, cheers!

Tara said...

ooops so sorry everyone ... was talking to dear Ellie. Such a delightful girl dear cq ... but a bit young no?

And yes, I am from British Columbia, and it IS a beautiful place ... but it was such a delight to be invited here to this wonderful party. cq knows, I'll fly to wherever I have to.

Mind you, she herself has a visit to British Columbia up and coming for a wedding. Isn't that right hon?

craziequeen said...

Yeah, Ellie is rather young, but she's learning fast. Hopefully this one is too young for ck! :-)

Yeah, I am travelling to BC for a certain wedding - maybe via LA and Calgary?

[pours champers]

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

OOOOO! Maybe through L.A.????
I'm very excited! I hope, I hope, I hope...
Did Wendy whisper that news to you?
I'm happy for him and for her, too! They have been together for quite a while, yes?

(Stuuffing my fact with more caviar..)

mar said...

oh, I think there are more weddings I didn't know of!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Me, too Mar...Do you sometimes feel out of the loop on these things? I know I do..I hadn't heard about JD...

mar said...

And now I have to gracefully disappear for my much needed beauty sleep... But I will be back in the morning to catch up on all the good gossip!

craziequeen said...

Yep, Dawn is marrying her lovely Jeffers..... :-) and I have been invited all the way to Canada to help them celebrate......

So while I'm there, it seems a shame not to go to LA and see Naomi...... :-)

charles ravndal said...

happy Anniversary to your blog and may it have more blogiversaries to come!

mar said...

Naomi, we keep posting at the very same time, lol!

mar said...

it sounds wonderful, cq dahling, and when should that all take place?

craziequeen said...

Hello Charles [presses glass of champers on the very nice man]

Mar - I know how annoying that is - me and ck are just the same :-)

craziequeen said...

Just waiting for those wonderful kids to set a date - but they have to save some money first :-)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Hiii Charles...So good to see you hear, too...
Oh Yes! Dear CQ....You must stop here in L.A. and come and visit me HERE ON THE HILL...(lol)...Yes, when might that be happening?

Oh WAlt....Could you bring me a Chocolate Sundee..Choc. Ice Cream with Hot Fudge Sauce?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Oh right...it would help if they set a date! LOL!!!
Well, whenever, my dear....I will look forward to that wonderful possability!

Tara said...

*Chatters with cq, running her fingers through her hair, subtely showing off the flashy engagement rock on the appropriate fingers*

Still haven't set a date. It's definitely next year sometime though!

Tara said...

hmmm yeah, just the one finger, not plural lol.

Goofy Girl said...

Hello everyone! I've got a busy study weekend infront of me, but I wanted to pop in and wish Craziequeen a Happy Blogiversary along with Wendy and Mar! And Happy Birthday to Wendy and Fizzy!! I'll take some snacks back to the library with me! Hope everyone has a great time!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

BEAUTIFUL Ring, dear Dawn...Nothing like one of those rocks, eh?
WALT! Where are you honey...? I need more Ice Cream! More Hot Fudge Sauce! MORE!
*Having a sugar fit*)

Tara said...

Well you know, I saw it and just HAD to have it. Dear Jeff is a wonderful man. However, he regretted it I think when I caught him in the eye with it on an accidental purpose.

craziequeen said...

Naomi! You're too old for a sugar fit!
Walt!?! Hurry and serve Miss Naomi! Quickly....

Goofy girl! How wonderful. Hope you get back from the library sometime!

Paste said...

Evening all, now where's the booze?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Oh My Dear Dawn...did you harm his eye? Those rocks do have sharp edges, don't they....But we don't want to poke out Jeff's eye before the Wedding, now do we? (lol)

Ahhh, Thank you dear Walt and Dear CQ...Yes, it is true....See, I shouldn't be having Sugar at al, BUT...How can I resist Hot Fudge Sauce...!!

Did WEndy go back home? I guess so...I can't keep upo with the time changes there in New Zealand...is this her Bedtime?

I hope Fizzy gets here soon...But if I miss her, PLEASE tell her a Happy Birthday from me...!

craziequeen said...

It should be around lunchtime in NZ, I guess...

Paste!! And sober too!! [hugs] here, let me get you a drink.

As for Fizzy, Naomi - she's probably exhausted after her first full week of teaching, poor love :-)

Tara said...

No oldoldlady, he's all good, and besides, he knew I'd get my own back eventually for the trick he pulled on me last Christmas :D

craziequeen said...

Must be love :-)

Walt? The first rush is over, can you refresh the buffet? Ellie, pull out more champagne, love.

And later - we'll break out the chocolate fountain :-)

Tara said...

oooooh chocolate. I can hardly wait!

craziequeen said...

Patience is a virtue :-)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I'm back for a few minutes! Oh Yes! THE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!!! HOORAY, CQ....
I can wait...I really can.

Okay, I'll be back in a little while, my dears....

monica said...

AWww you are all so cute!!!!

monica said...

Oh yeah.. happy anniversary!

craziequeen said...

hey dubs - how's the new baby?

Some fresh-squeezed orange juice - or would you like some of the hard stuff [waves bottle of champagne]

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I'm back for a little bit here CQ...Is everyone passed out???

Ahhh, dear Walt. How have you been my dear....I've missed seeing you..it's been a good three months, you know....Come sit down with me on the couch, for just a moment...(*pulls him by his coat-tail*)

CQ It's getting late in the A.M. for you...Are you off to bed? Or are you still up and about...?

craziequeen said...

I'm still here - staying up for my American guests....

Just about to serve the chocolate fountain.....

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I'm sooo excited! I've never had the Chocolate Fountain before!! Is it sanitary..(LOL) Wel;, you know I have tto be careful because of my lung problems....BUT, I have always thought a Chocolate Fountain would be a FABULOUS thing to have at a party...I'm THRILLED you have it!
So do we put Strawberries in it? Or Cookies?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Or Bread?
Or should I just get a glass and collect some in it and Drink It??? LOL!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I forgot to ask..Is it Deep Dark Chocolate? Not that it would matter to me at this point...Just as long as it is CHOCOLATE Chocolate and not White Chocolate...(*Swoooning in ecstasy*) Ohhhhh my....I'm ready for this, my dear!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

BTW: I really really do hope you will get to Los Angeles and this hill of mine. Wouldn't that be just fantastic????
Mmmm. I'll think on that and try to Visualize it so it will happen!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Can I getINTO the Chocolate Fountain? You know like in "La Dolce Vita"???....I am in Hoggity Heaven Here, My Dear....Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Oh MY LOrd! This is better than sex!

craziequeen said...

You can dip whatever you want in it - there are strawberries and shortbread cookies on the side with skewers to stop you sticking your hands in it.......

I know, it's hard to believe I might be able to come and see my Nay :-D

WendyWings said...

Sorry Aunty Em, I was actually hanging out washing, Mr 19 has moved home for a bit and I got sucked into doing his laundry for him lol.
I need another glass of champers.
Btw chocolate fountains are wonderful, I have had experience with them lol.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Hello? Hello? Am I the only one here SWIMMING in The Chocolate Fountain? Drinking this in and being so incredibly happy..!

craziequeen said...

Better than sex?? I'll take your word for it........[chuckle]
I'll be sure and tell Walt [wink]

craziequeen said...

[pours Wendy generous glass of champers]

so, honey, Naomi and I are confused - what time is it in your neck of the woods...?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Ohhhh My God!!!!
This is the BEST Chocolate I have ever had, in my whole life!!!
CQ...You have outdone yourself....WHERE did you get this chocolate from????

Ohhhhhhhh, I t-h-i-n-k I am going into a chocolaholic coma......
(**appearing to pass out on couch...reaching for Walt's coat**).....

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

WENDY....! You are back...Oh Dear.....(**Spreading chocolate all over her now naked body**) 19 has moved back home??? OY

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

craziequeen said...

Dak-ind! Party is still on....[hands over glass of champagne]

Walt? Get some spare clothes for Miss Naomi, please.......

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Okay...I know I am a Chocoholic and must go to Chocolholic Anonymous...So, I am going to rest for a few minutes and then find a "meeting" of C.A. that I can go to...well, maybe I'll have one more cup of the Chocolate from the Chocolate fountain...

No one seems to be here anymore.
See you....whenev....................

craziequeen said...

It's always just 'one more cup', eh? :-)

Things always get quiet when the Americans are at home - here's me staying up until the early hours to 'see' everyone....ah well.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I hope you are sleeping well, my dear CQ...I just stopped in to tell you that I LOVE that you are having this party...

Killired said...

well hello lovely cq... stopping back by after my long hangover nap... what kind of bubbly was that? whoa...it did a number on me. i was afraid i'd never make it home... but walt made the arrangements for me... after i found him in the garden with 'you know who from the hills'... and let me just say... if he is the father of clara's child, he should not have been in the garden with 'you know who from the hills' with barely any clothing on... *ahem*... but regardless of their little 'thing'... he was gracious enough to get dressed and help me get home! thanks so much for another wonderful party! i really look forward to your gala's!!!!!

Carmen said...

Happy blogiversary and all that jazz. If there are any buffet leftovers, send em my way. :)
