New Year, New Hosting Technique

Dear reader,  a happy new year to you from Mr Him and I. 





We toasted 2017 in with friends. My hosting was everything my last attempt wasn't.  Out with the lemsip,  in with the Prosecco.  Out with food scraped together by relatives, in with M&S party food. 





Out with floating on cloud cuckoo land  (so last year ), in with grounded and attentive hosting.  Out with masses of guests,  in with a select group.
