Rightie ho..some :cam: as promised but only a few as I have another braai here at home tonight so I am a bit on the busy side....:)

But the table is set..well sort of...the salads and all the yummy food was still to arrive. But seeing that Anne-Marie would have loved to be with us I decided to decorate the table with some of the paper table cloth that Anne-marie gave me on a previous visit. You see Anne Marie you were here in spirit...:)

Image

And soon the table in the lounge was decked with presents.

Image

Numbers were randomly chosen and Scouter's SO had chosen #1 so he had to start the ball rolling. Nobody likes to start but he ( being the gentleman that he is) put a smile on his face and selected a present. Strangely enough men don't normally select a pretty present wrapped up in pretty-ish pinky paper tied together with shiny pink ribbon and Christmas baubles but this man did.... :clap: :clap:
And with all the eyes in the room watching his every move he wasted no time in opening it....

Image

Image

And that was it..everybody went into "steal mode" The game had begun....
:dance:
to be continued...
