Party time

This Bank Holiday Weekend I'll be in my best bib and tucker for a very special 80th birthday party (not mine). It's a sit down 3 course meal, with a band in a posh hotel, in the posh part of Yorkshire and I'm on the top table, yikes. It's such a special event that I'm even having a manicure for the do, and I never have a manicure.

I have received etiquette instructions from one of my fab sisters-in-law who advises by txt msg: remember 2 use yr nife n fork + don't burp @ the table.

I can only do me best.

Best not to fall head first into the pudding either.

And don't drink the soup with a straw.

Don't waste that manicure - remember to stick out your little finger at 90 degrees when lifting your coffee cup.

I don't know, me dad always said that burping was a compliment to the cook. :) I wouldn't advise too much wine though, or you'll be doing what the first two commenters suggested not to do.

Tvor - I like the cut of your jib!

Saggitarian... what i said or the icon photo? heh, I may be as round as the metal chick but it takes heavy metal to keep these things up and pointy like that these days :)

What you said really, but now you mention the picture...that as well! cheers!

Flaming Nora said...

Glad to report that all went well, with no burping.

I think you might just have passed muster love.
Have not heard anything on the drums about any Nora related faux-pas.
I hope you had a really great time and if you have any photos to share????
