Christmas Party 2012

Well, I've organised the Christmas party. It was a long, hard slog, but I finally

  • sent a message to Cathy
  • asked if it was OK to have it at her place
  • she said YES!
  •  and so I've finished organising.
So here's the details:

It's on 8 December 2012, at 1pm, and the location is Cathy's place. That's a private address, of course, but I can pass it on to you privately if you don't know it. Of course any SERS-goer is welcome.

We'll bring a plate of food, anything you like to bring, don't get carried away, we don't eat that much!

We'll have an ornament swap - we've done this in the past. Make an ornament, using any crafty skills you like, and everyone will go home with something new to decorate their home. I know my tree has a number of  SERS made decorations, and I do appreciate them!

As usual, if you have no time/no energy for an ornament swap, or don't know what to make, or don't even celebrate Christmas, just relax and come and socialise anyway. We always get up to some kind of mischief at Cathy's - one year we raided her old stamp catalogues for a trip down memory lane, and another year we watched a TV show about chocolate that she had saved specially!

Some people bring gifts or cards, and that's lovely, and some don't, and that's fine. I think a gift to the hostess to say thanks for offering her home is always good manners, if you can manage it.

So, does that sound fun? See you there!
