Mad house party, Waltzer forgets camera

Matt, Triona, Mairead and little Marie threw a cool Halloween party on Friday night. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so there is no pictures to share with you this week. It was another crazy one with the hilight being Mairead accidently locking herself into her bedroom, Des Marron climbing up the back wall, falling, climbing again, into her room and finding the key under the door!

Overall a good party with unusual appearances by Viv, Charley, Sully and Jack. The scene was set with ultra-violet light, strobe, disco lights, good music, nicely decorated gaff. Well done to the kids. That shot of Aftershock did me no favours though! And I think I only managed to drink one of my very expensive Kronenburg bottles before they were all liberated from their cardboard prison.

Next week: pictures from Nicola (leaving), Isobel (birthday) and Waltzer (Halloween).
