You were missed, but we managed to blunder along without you Jackie :lol:
and William and Kat too.

I think we had a fun night with the usual topics of conversation cropping up.
Shaun didn't stop long as he had a pressing engagement elsewhere in the house.... :wink:
and Alan joined us briefly on his mobile.

The quiz was won by Jane (I think) and we raffled Poland with Errata being pronounced the winner.

Congratualtions to the winners and thanks to all who attended for a fun night.

*discrete cough* Ummmmm.........I think I won the quiz. Would not comment, except I've worked up a fair bit of one for October. But if Jane has, too, would be quite happy to experience one of her offerings :wink:

Sorry :oops: my mistake, I kept track of the scores on a spreadsheet and then forgot to save it. I knew it was either you or Jane, it came down to the last question.. but couldn't remember which one of you.

I can't wait to sample your offerings.... :wink:
