MX-5 Christmas Dinner

Yesterday afternoon we loaded the car with all our things for a night away and Hamish had his rucksack and bed as he was going to stay with Fred for a sleep-over. After delivering him to Jo and Paul's we set off to meet our fellow fivers at Fraddon before driving on up to Trethorne Golf Club at Launceston.

We checked in and found our room which was very nice and in a Lodge close to the main building.

Everyone gathered by the bar at 6.30pm for a pre-meal drink and then it was time to start the important part of the evening - the food! It was scrumptious!

After dinner the Disco got going and we managed to work off some of the calories we'd consumed! In between dances we sat and chatted ...

By the time we left to walk back to the Lodge it was already very frosty and gave us an idea of what we'd be finding this morning when we looked out of our window.

On our way up for breakfast I took these photos of our poor little car which normally leads such a sheltered life with a cosy garage for a home but had to endure freezing temperatures and was covered in a very heavy frost ...

The rest of the members were going on a short drive today but we wanted to get back and collect Hamish. We'd heard from Jo that Paul had spent the night on the sofa as our little monster wouldn't stop barking. Check out Jo's blog - Cornish Beach Brummie - for photos of the boys.

A big thank you to both of them for having him to stay.

Yay - we're famous! and H was a good boy and Fred and I really miss him - OK Paul was glad of a real bed last night, but he missed H too!
