An 'Eventfull' Saturday

As I mentioned on Sunday, Saturday was a busy day in the Click household. After spending a busy week at work I normally like to reserve my weekends for relaxing, not leaving the house much and getting caught up on books. But I somehow found myself fully booked with the Red Cross tent for the Armed Forces Day in the morning and early afternoon, then a work party in the evening.

I've mentioned before that I'm not big on the whole socialising thing. Quiet evenings in with a good book or film are far higher on my list of things I enjoy than discos.

But I was involved in the organisation of this particular 'event' (I'm on a committee which is hoping to arrange a selection of out of work events) so I had to go along.

And I'm so glad I did. Having been out all day we weren't sure whether Mr Click's parents would mind watching Tara for the evening as well as earlier in the day, but in the end they agreed to watch her, so off we went.

Originally it had been planned as a beach party with sandcastle building competitions and a kareoke machine for entertainment, plus a barbecue. But living on Scotland, plans for a summer beach party were maybe just a wee bit optimistic. So it was relocated to a local hall.

Which worked beautifully. We still had the barbecue, plus a local guy who does family parties for the entertainment. It meant that as well as dancing we had party games (at one point I ended up sitting on Mr Click while we played 'Musical Men'!)

I don't think I've laughed so much in ages, my head actually hurt from it! Mr Click had to leave early to get back to relieve his parents of Tara so I stayed until ten for the raffle (and won my husband a bottle of wine, because I'm a nice wife, even though I could have chosen chocolates). When I left the party was still going strong.

It was definitely a great night and I can't wait until whatever we plan next. Hopefully whatever it is will be as successful as our indoor beach party.
