Sylvia Party 16/12/2006

An early start today, I got to Sylvia's for 2pm for her champagne party to celebrate her birthday. Those first to arrive were able to have their champagne with a hibiscus flower in it. The flower was supposed to bloom in the champagne, and although we couldn't quite discern any blooming, it was an impressive addition to a glass of champagne. After me Christine, Penny, Chris and Julie, Rita and Paul, Barbara and Chris, Sejal, Sandra and Rob, Victoria and David all arrived and we proceeded to keep drinking the champagne. David and Victoria arrived with some expensive chamonix pagne that we opened to celebrate their wedding. The food was certainly copious and appropriately calorific, and we had a hi-tech audio visual display to entertain us. Before I knew it it was nearly 8pm and I had to leave to attend another party that had started more than an hour ago.
