"not enough seats so most people ate their chili con carne or chicken curry standing up"
Did you choose the seat or the food? I chose the seat & had someones granny butty bumping me trying to push me off the bench (was that you McTAVGE?).
Ended up buying a meat pie out the fridge & tin of beer 'cos if I had moved, I'd not have been able to sit down again & the cooked stuff had been devoured by the rabid locusts.
I thought it was well organised (I wondered where the fish n chip van was though) & imagine as the weather was fairly decent they hadn't expected quite so many people. And even after hundreds of bums, that loo was clean at the end of the evening!
Got my stash of tins of mushy peas, mince pies etc for a quiet nibble this week.

No, I was not part of the zimmer frame, permed purple hair brigade, thank you very much!


I can't believe I spent that much on mince meat (I make my own mince pies), Xmas pudding and crackers and, oh Heaven..TCP!
