We're a little short on photos as we were all having too much fun and forgot to take many but these are a few to give you an idea of our night.
DJ son with friend Tchengiz
We made 60 pop-cakes.
Never again! Delicious but time consuming.
Sadly, flu and various other aliments attacked some of our guests but the assembled group of about 25 certainly made up for it. We had a sterling performance of 'Cabaret' from 'Fenella' and then we moved on to the teen's friend Tchengiz, who did a couple of his own songs and wowed his audience. We only have one video to share on here as it almost killed hubbie trying to get it from his phone and edit it for the blog.

At my request Tchengiz also performed his Christmas song and I thought I'd post the original video here too:
I'm sure you'll agree that he's got quite a talent and will go far. I wish him all the luck in the world - a lovely young man who shared many happy years with my son at school and I'm sure they will continue to keep in touch.
We were then entertained by my good friend @nurseyjo, who tap-danced to an Olly Murs number. I'm so jealous and it made me even more determined to master those moves!
Then quite out of the blue, @nurseyjo's beautiful daughter did an impromptu performance of 'Bring it on Home to Me' with Tchengiz accompanying her on guitar - they had literally disappeared upstairs for only a few minutes and then *BAM* they were in to it. If Simon Cowell had been at my party he would have been rubbing his hands together with glee at the plethora of talent! Thank you so much, guys! I'd love to post the video here but I think the process of doing so would tip hubbie over the edge!
We danced, we laughed, we ate and we drank. It was even warm enough for people to enjoy sitting outside in our 'Bedouin' tent - mad for February! A great night was had by all and I thank my guests for making it so special.
Being 51 is just fine!
Now ... shall I throw a summer party?
