Weekend Wonders

Some weekends are more memorable than others & this past one was a beauty! My best friends farewell party late yesterday was fantastic. Wonderful food, copious bubbly, lots of people & much loud noise & laughter. With most of their furniture gone to storage, we had lots of floor space to enjoy ourselves in & around 9p.m. a certain well-known Chairman of the Board treated us all to a rousing performance on his beloved piano accordion. Despite protestations from those of us who have had previous exposure to renditions over the years (generally at the end of a big, big night), he launched into it with gusto. We danced & laughed until we cried, it was a special moment & a very fitting send-off to their beloved old house.

And yes, wonders will never cease - we have grout on the bathroom tiles!! The shower screens are being installed next Monday, so MOTH's under pressure big time to make a last minute dash to the post. Of course, we still don't have a ceiling in there, but hey that's a minor concern apparently. All in good time, all in good time.

  1. I guess with no ceiling the steam from the shower can just go into the roof cavity and disperse, right?

    Progress is progress, however slow.

    Sounds like a memorable night, I love listening to amateur musicians its always funny.

  2. Sounds like the best kind of send-off for your friends Millie. Laughter, great friends and grout - a brillinat weekend all round. xx

  3. I'm so glad you had a good time.. it sounds like a farewell they will never forget!
    Yay, grout! Only people who have waited patiently for grout can really get excited about it... definitely a step in the right direction.

  4. Why not get excited, I would! Like you I am also waiting for two ceilings in my house.... waiting... waiting... waiting.... Glad you had a wonderful night with your friends. ;-)

  5. Sounds like a wonderful way to say goodbye to a house. Nights like that are just one of the best things in life..

    Much excitement in blogland about the impending BFH reveal! Who needs a ceiling? Better ventilation without it..Rachaelxx

  6. It sounds like a great time to me Millie...could have been bagpipes!! Grout on the not envy you that one....good luck to MOTH!


  7. Amazing accordian! An accordian just makes a party, right? Congrats on the grout, that probably deserves an accordian serenade too, right?! XX!

  8. Sounds like a good time for all. :)

  9. One of my secret longings is to play polkas on the accordion at parties and family gatherings. I would help if I had one, and knew how to play.

  10. Oh I can't believe the BFH is all coming to an end Millie. Can't wait for the big reveal. Your night sounds like a night you will remember for years to come.. wonderful memories. A-M xx

  11. It sounds like it was a fantastic night! Hmmm, piano accordian.... I suppose it could be fun.

    Woohoo - BIG progress on the bathroom!


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
