Who's buying McDonalds?

My previous post should read "she has everything you'll need" that vagaries of typing with one hand and food in the other...................
Off to Bournemouth tomorrow so time to say Good Night and pack.
Merry Christmas to all.

Bournemouth Daisy? The seaside in Winter, fabulous!

Well, dear Nungate, I fear gravity is closing my eyelids for me so I must thank you for your usual hospitality and be on my way. As my prize I have relieved you of the last of the volley vongs which I shall enjoy on the bus home.
Good wishes to you and yours for an enjoyable Christmas and the coming New Year. X x x

I love Sussex! We used to holiday down there up until queenie was about 9 then we thought she might be civilised enough to go abroad! We based ourselves in Rye and explored all over East Sussex and Kent it was lovely!
Ah happy days...................
well, lovely hostess, it would appear that things are winding down.
i shall take my leave and get home in order to put this evening suit back into the cupboard - there to stay for another ten years.

it has been a most memorable evening, and you both have been, as usual, the best hostesses.

if we do not speak before tuesday, may i wish both of you a very happy christmas.

good night
pardon lat appearance,been hypnotised by the flames of the woodburner,OH gone up the wooden hill,so all quiet.
Totsiens.

Excel, that suit will be out again soon, or at least it'll need to come out of storage for next year's Christmas extravaganza!
Not sure if I'll get this thing working properly before Christmas so on behalf of Queenie and Me. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas xx

Hello Petal, you've just made it before the doors close, Rocky Road is still playing the mobile disco in the Great Hall and there's scads of food left, not to mention mulled wine and tonight's tailcock, the Christmas Carol, so toddle up and join in the throng - I've a feeling we'll be having overnight guests in the West Wing!
have a merry festive season one and all
do we need chaperones?
Question Author
Belle will see everything there are plenty of guest suites available, breakfast is at 9.00a.m.

I shall be retiring to my chambers soon, any guests wishing to stay over may leave their names with Belle who will allocate the guest suites. Otherwise, the carriages await all who are intent on returning to their homes.

Chubb will begin the lock up upon the departure of the last carriage and Igor and the rest of the staff will begin the clear up when the last of our guests have retired

Igor, please convey our thanks to the staff for their assistance this evening, and you may all have a lie in tomorrow, since you will be very late tonight.
Good night and Merry Christmas to all
Postscript as per the request:

The dance at Nungate Towers, a waltz jazzed up slowed
out of time, the Minstrels real easy is in three played free
and so all the time in the AB world
last dance for the MoFC it's the last dance at Nungate’s Christmas ball
Carol tailcocks for the visitors made by Igor on a frenzied spree
chains a sparkling and the Lady A Christmas tree
baubles things like favourite things on groaning tables
like mince pies.

Once the ball is over, coaches and broomsticks to their country piles
waiting, the MoFCers will be counting their Ibuprofen pills
All the MoFCers are chuckling because excelsior asked QoM "do I repeat
myself" and she said "but very well" and now they're dancing
because they've lost count and
don't care and because it's the last
dance and excelsior’s dancing
laughing and dancing with the oh-so-divine Queen of Mean.

Once more the Season approaches, Nungate’s Noel ball closes
Frocks crumpled, discarded on the floor,
Belle’s riffle bags, mysterious and strange in contents
Polar bear, sibs and Daisy, even slooppy gone,
Others meander in and out, trays of emerging bonbons
excelsior’s continues the dancing
laughing and dancing with the oh-so-divine Queen of Mean.
Oh seeing the reminders thread below, did you see the 21-12 last contribution, nungate....the verse on the Xmas ball.....just in case you didn't, here we are again:
