theCSSdiv and drinks (with added wax)

As we are soon coming into the festive season (and I do mean coming – I refuse to think that Xmas is around the corner until December is upon us and I start getting chocolates every morning in my advent calendar) I have decided that the Xmas cheer can be best displayed via a good old knees up, arranged by myself in a lovely London venue.

After stretching my legs (believe me I needed to after being scrunched into those wee seats (I’ll stop mentioning them after I get blood flowing through my feet again) I made my way down to the after-party which was being held on the beach front via my lovely hotel.

The place to be was The Terraces and I certainly was there, until they kicked me out! Read more
