MaggieandBruceXmas2015We were at a friend’s surprise birthday party on Friday and, for once, it really was a surprise. Planned many weeks ahead, the whole affair had been very well kept under wraps and it’s a miracle to me that the birthday girl didn’t find out beforehand.

However, the huge buffet (of which you can only see a small part in the photo) and the opportunity to catch up with many dancing friends was a great consolation.
