"Come on with the rain, I've a smile on my face"

Our birthday picnic yesterday was the most magnificent fun!

Loads of food, loads of booze, loads of friends - then came the rain. It didn't stop the party, of course - we're British! - as we decamped into the hedge, and carried on... The band were excellent, we danced in the douwnpour, got very drunk indeed, did a conga line and had a sing-song.

And there was a romantic twist, too, as Baby Steve proposed to Houseboy Alex (now that he's passed 30, we're going to have to refer to him as "The Butler" from now on!), on bended knee, in swamplike conditions. Awwww - now we have to buy more hats!

Anyway, it is Tacky Music Monday, and our friend Lionel has furnished us with a most appropriate choon - whoever thought it was a good idea to do a dance remix of the theme from The Love Boat?

Enjoy the rest of the week, and avoid the riots!


  1. A fabulous day despite the rain! Lovely to see everyone. Happy birthday for Wednesday! Xx

  3. Nothing quite beats a party in the rain... It was indeed a fantastic day, and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves. Thus begins the month of celebrations! Jx
