Come on in Melly, the water's lovely in the hot tub. I'll be down in a minute. (I'm finishing off a complaint letter that has to be sent today, when I'd far rather be doing my baking stuff). I'll have some hot sausage rolls ready soon. Anyone else need to escape reality?
Melly's in one of the the log cabins, anyone need a swim? I think I need a swimming pool area with spa attached? We've got a special games room for M and S to play in and get to know each other. All carees welcome, when the Carees Lounge has been decorated. What would your carees like most?

As Melly has decided she needs a log cabin, lets have one for everyone who needs one. Join in and say what you'd like in them?
As I started by doing one meal, and now have longer term guests, I'll arrange a "pop up restaurant" as well. Who would you like to cook for you, Nigella, or Jamie, or ....?
Arrive whenever you like Pete, BB is used to managing the unplanned! Your bought treats will be very welcome.

BB, I've been sorting annoying things out too and still not reached the conclusion I'd like yet, waiting for calls back etc.
The games room sounds great. S would love a big sofa to lie on, wifi and a snooker table. Does M like snooker?
I know I said I wouldn't, but soaking in this hot tub is divine.

I'm bringing a HUGE basket to put by the front gate. That's for putting all your worries, cares and stresses in, to leave them aside while you step in.

On second thoughts I'd better make that a huge Skip!!
And yes please to the swimming pool and spa area.
Can we add water flumes that whizz us through the outside and in again (like at Cent** Par** but without any children) and free massages?

Log cabins are nice but did you see the stunning Norwegian designs on Small spaces in the Ice (or something similarly named) last night? Glass over waterfalls with amazing views, geodesic domes to the Northern Lights. I still won't be persuaded into an Ice Hotel though.
Your wish is my command.
I love the idea of the flume etc. that's all arranged now! Could we manage a sort of camp fire sing song? I never ever get to a camp fire these days, when I worked at the Guides Chalet in Switzerland in 1971 I ended up being able to sing in 13 different languages. Can even remember how to sing Row Row Row Your Boat in Malay. On second thoughts, perhaps not!
Melly I'm not sure if M has ever played snooker, but he's good at bowling, beaten many of our steam friends at a bowling alley. As he's got good hand eye co ordination I'm sure S would be able to teach him.
Pete, I used to have the odd rum and black with my OH, but again, don't let me have much or I'll go all squiffy. Actually, perhaps we should encourage squiffy at a Christmas do?!

DUH! Of course we encourage squiffy at Christmas, especially at a virtual one when theres no driving involved. Mum on the G&T, kids trying Advocat, Dad on port or brandy, Gran snoring after a small sherry.....
And we'll hire in a camp fire sing song leader from either one of the 2 great scout and guide camps just down the road toward's Fawley. Thye have brilliant activity leaders there , tho i want to be in the front row to hear BB do row the boat in malay!!!! Are there no ends to that lady's talents?
I'm useless at playing the violin, and I wasn't even at the back of the queue when it came to the ability to draw!
Oh you have all been busy, I will bring the Christmas Crackers complete with silly hats, and I will need a quiet warm corner for my hound to sleep , she won't get in any ones way , but she doesn't like to be left out of things, a friendly giant. She also doubles up as waste disposal unit for the Christmas leftovers :D
At times I do wish I were only virtual and not real.
Enjoy your party.
