The Best of British

I iz a little hung over today. My bestie's kids, yep, both of them . . are heading to the UK for an indeterminable amount of time on 11th May. This will leave her and her husband as empty nesters although the kids actually moved out recently. One's married, the other in a relationship and left home some months go. It's rather sad to untie those apron strings but in the true spirit of friendship, a party was held for Tom and Kate at my friend's gorgeous house. These two kids have grown up with mine. They're close, fun and we wish them all the best in England over the next couple of years. Of course, last night was not one of sadness at all, apart from my darling girlfriend worrying about noise. It was all good. No police arrived, no fights, no tension, just a bunch of youngsters having a good time and a load of oldies who should have known better. So, while I take a sip of the 'hair of the dog', massage my hip and wounded knees, here's a rather introspective view of the shenanigins. The theme . .  "British". I don't normally post photos in respect of anonymity but if you recognise anyone here . . well the best of British to you . . .

Edina, Bubble and Patsy - Absolutely Fabulous

John and Yoko

Posh Spice and . . er . . . Freddie?

Ok the soccer player is always Clare's fallback position

Ozzie had trouble focussing

James Bond takes a walk in an English Country Garden

Freddie carves it up

Three out of five Spice Girls

Kate? Seeing Double but where's Wills?
Ah . . there he is

The Queen and  . I have no idea . . .

Ok I'm supposed to be AbFab but with that hair? Double for Slash. Seriousy half a dozen people asked me if that's my real hair!

Twiggy

Alice and Amy Winehouse get their thing on

Dirty Dancing

Two Old Boilers and a Spring Chicken (my knees hurt!)

Redcoat and his flag

Apparently the British invented the toilet roll and perforated toilet paper . . Guess what my son went as?

Family who goofs together . . . stays together.  Wait a minute, that doesn't even rhyme.


Bon Chance Kate and Nev, Tom and Binny  . . . we'll miss you . . keep in touch on Facebook. MWAH!

Carolina said...

One's had a wonderfull time I gather ;-) I prefer this William to the real one me thinks. And I vote AbFab Patsy to be the best dressed guest. Not your son. Sorry. Your hair reminds me of someone. Gawd, who was it...? Some guy who just visited you? Has he gone home bald? ;-)

Pam said...

Hahaha! You did Patsy and Edina proud with the Bollinger...and in true AbFab style you'll be able to offer a padded Lecroix shoulder to cry on when the babies fly away on the big adventure.
Hope your friend will be O.K. My fledgeling is threatening to live in Germany and it makes me want to hit the bottle too!...seriously though, all our hopes and dreams go with them don't they, as we wish them the best. Great pics!x

What a fun party! I believe that's Elton John with the Queen there.

Gor blimey oh Riley, luvvaducks, I would have thought the Brits were fleeing to Oz and not the other way round. Well, I hope they have a good time Up Over.

I had no idea Kate was so hairy. She really can't postpone that waxing session any longer.

Alan Burnett said...

A Family who goof together .... are a family to be proud of.

Siobhan said...

Oh my goodness I love the Ab Fab outfits! Especially Patsy!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

What a WILD and FABULOUS party! Now, I think you should take to wearing the leopard bow in your hair to market! ;)

Ropi said...

Kath Lockett said...

Great shots - a party's always a winner when everyone gets into the spirit of the theme....

...I would have gone as a corgi!

You KNOW how to party.
And never mind the Slash remarks - at least no one called you Brian May.
