Happy hosting

Before having children, Paul and I used to have friends and family round for parties, gatherings, table tennis tournaments, pool competitions and other random celebrations on a regular basis. It was rare for us not to have a house full come the weekend and you were never quite sure who’d be hanging around for breakfast the next day. Bacon butties and strong cups of tea all round!

But when our two sleep thieves came along and we were barely able to lift ourselves off the sofa of an evening never mind welcome anyone in to our home, hosting raucous parties became a thing of the past in favour of early nights and hangover free mornings. But we were still partial to the sizzle of bacon and a hot cup of tea after being woken up by teething babies all night long.
