Another brilliant New Year’s Eve
Posted on January 16th, 2015 by queens
Jan 31st 2014 saw another fun party night in town with a fantastic family atmosphere and crowds of revellers all dressed up. My favourite were four young men presenting themselves as the Jamaican bobsleigh team, complete with lycra outfits and a plastic sledge they rode all the way to the front. Last seen heading for the Rum and Crab Shack.

And we also decided to paint the stairwell going up the bedrooms a traditional, bottle green colour and hang up some old mirrors. Here’s what it looks like today – before one more giant mirror goes in the alcove and the lightshade is fitted:
