The glitterati were assembled on Saturday night to celebrate the anniversary of the splicing together of everyone's favourite Liability with renowned Frank Bough impersonator Richie "comb-over" Meeson.
Here's the tin couple (10 years is the tin anniversary for anyone not in the know) during the early stages of the evening as Liability prises open some of the gifts brought by admiring Millbrookians. Mrs The Sump is looking on:
The evening began at Comb-Over Cottage, the hilltop eyrie of the celebrating duo, with drinkies and general milling about. During the mingling and assorted talking of bollocks, Chrissie and Kevin finally got given blog names. I'm sure everyone will be pleased to welcome Dorothy and Arbuthnot to the glittering assemblage that is made up of named Daily(ish) Millbrookers. To give Kevin his full title he's Jonquil Arbuthnot Pinchbottom, but I'm not sure I can be arsed to type that out every time.
In short order, we all decamped to the D&C where Liability and Richie had very generously sponsored supper for all, in the upstairs dining room so as to avoid the inevitable paparazzi.
Here's a shot of Liability and Richie during the toasting bit of the evening, with Shazzerooneypoos finding it all most enjoyable:It goes without saying that a jolly good time was had by all and thanks are due to Richie and Liability for their hosting of a lovely meal; a generous and excellent gesture. I'm sure everyone will join me in offering sincere condolences for their ten years of marriage and in hoping they'll have umpteen more. Cheers, guys. We really appreciated being invited, thank you.
There's a full set of the (captioned) photos that Mrs The Millbrooker and I snapped on the night on the complete photosets link on the right - enjoy.
