What a hostess!

M & D: Thanks for the lovely chocoate (all gone all ready) and for
bringing smoked salmon (I know that also disappeared in a flash from the
table). Loved your write up in the guest book. And I was so glad Kim
could join us - she's just lovely.

The party was fun, I'm glad I hired some help (Kitana did a lot of clean
up the night before) but yet the next day we lost about 7 hours between
the two houses (do you know how many places pizza dough can hide in). I
don't know if you spent anytime at the front of the house but we had
this enormous tarp that we had put up - and thank goodness we did as the
rains did come down heavy. As one who does throw parties you know what
it takes - everything from smiling, chatting to checking on toilet paper
in the loo!

K's place is great for hosting parties and I'm lucky he is so generous
with me. When I get to my place I just look around wondering how in the
past I have had 60 to 70 people there. Yikes.

I'm off again next week. And then two weeks later. And on it goes.
Looking forward to a November gathering! And I will also pass Heather's
details onto you should you ever need helping hands.
