I was absent here yesterday evening. The day was Arctic again but fortunately it was sunny which really helps to bear that severe freezing. Rocky sleeps in his winter "hotel" and it meant a special strategy for me to get out from the house in the evening without disturbing him.:-)
What was going on? Well, we firemen from Spolí had an annual dancing ball! My friend Marcela and I had our traditional duty to sell the entrance tickets together with tombola (raffle?) tickets and we had to be there at 7 p.m. And it was FREEZING again, I had to wear warm boots and change into my dancing shoes in the pub which was a problem because I didn´t have my glasses and I didn´t see the straps - a real comedy!
Also I had to creep in the dark along the house because of the dog and I felt like laughing because it was so ridiculous.
Fortunately all was fine, there were the whole family "clans" attending and of course, everyone was holding a bag or a basket full of home made "sweetmeats"...the tables were covered with plates and trays! :-)
I was sitting with my friends as usual and we had fun, we danced here and there but mostly talked - well, not exactly because the music was very noisy and we had to yell at each other. Now imagine about 70 people yelling, the brass band playing, hahaha! We shared several drinks too, of course some people more than several.:-)
I returned home at one a.m. - Marcela called today that they had remained there to four a.m.:-)
Well, the event is over and it was a success, people liked it there and we had fun.
I am definitely goin to bed early.
So - good night/good morning!!!:-)
