R had prepared nibbles of mild blue cheese and pate at home as we had a pre dinner drink.
More wine was drunk over dinner by three of the four of us, our gay friend having to drive home.
Back home we got stuck into the Scotch while our gay friend had a cup of tea. Our gay friend got his phone Grindr going and what a hoot it was. I showed them my latest love, a Brazilian slightly dark guy with a big.........personality. We had a grand old time, rather like the old days.
In a none too subtle manner, I said to our Hairdresser Friend, there is a 3A tram in ten minutes, if you care to catch it home.
It was a good call as the evening had come to a closure point. Nevertheless, we had drank a lot and woke Sunday morning, me at 6.30 and R at 10.00 looking less that our usual gorgeous selves.
We have to function. Little Jo is on the stage at 1pm and we have an hour's journey to see her. We need food at the Scottish Takeaway Restaurant in North Geelong, and we wanted to buy flowers for Little Jo. We failed on that score. We ran out of time.
Little Jo's singing and American accent (rich American fashionista) were brilliant. She worked that out herself from YT clips and her drawly accent was a surprise to her theatre teachers. It was her final performance for that theatre group. There are new irons in the fire. We went to the nearby trendy cafe for coffee and cake and a chat afterwards and then walked back to our car and as we will be overseas when it is Little Jo's twelfth birthday, we gave her a present and card early. She was delighted with the Harry Potter Lego, god knows why.
We missed Oldest Niece's birthday lunch, but Mother managed to attend and I have seen grand photos on FB.
Sister's wife Bone Doctor's parents lead quite separate lives. I asked about D and Bone Doctor said she had received an email from her mother with a photo of she and her female travelling companion on a hotel balcony watching the gay pride march in Rome. How cool is that.
Most of this was written that night. After today's skin cancer surgery, I may be a bit thin in the world of blog for I am not sure how long. I type with all fingers and thumbs and struggle to type one fingered with my left hand.
