Christmas Quilty Conviviality Chez Catsmum




and bugger the complainers!!!!
... those few who decided to 'boycott' the occasion because they had been asked by the Committee to contribute a small plate of food? - well, it was their loss.
I enjoyed myself.
Last year we had it where we normally have our meetings, and some whinged because they felt that the catered sandwiches and savouries didn't represent enough value for the club's money and that the venue was too small for the numbers... an element of truth to that which is why we tried my place this year - more room.
The year before some of them felt that the newly opened Empyre Hotel was too expensive and there wasn't enough food.
Whatever happened to "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"??
I guess the Committee just can't win this one.
One of the chief complainers actually rang me tonight to make sure that I understood her position - which was that she'd said her piece and then turned up anyway!!
I'm not at all sure I really needed to know that.
I was and still am under the impression that we'd had a wonderful time so pffft to the rest of them.
Bugger 'em.
btw this is my 300th post.

To heck with the complainers!!! They just don't want to have fun. I'm convinced of this. It looks like a wonderful time was had by all! And, of course, the house is just stunning.

300 posts in just over 16 months - impressive!
I thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas party, best decorations ever! The moving memorial service today for one of our members should remind us all that life is just too short - and too precious - for petty bitching.
