Every year I look forward to Bonfire Night. I adore fireworks and Bonfire Night is always a great night to meet with family and friends. Plus, it's the start of Christmas, which, for me every year, can't come quick enough (I have ready made a few Bethlehem Lights purchases for my first Christmas in my new home).
We met for drinks at Tiffany and her husband David's house before leaving for the fireworks. She only lives 10 minutes from me so we see a lot of each other.
Just a gorgeous girl who is so giving and incredibly funny. She is one of our regular QVC models and is soooo glamorous.
The guys walked to the fireworks, which were in the Wentworth grounds, the famous estate that has the likes of Bruce Forsyth as its residents.
In true form, us girls in hats, coats, gloves and thermals drove as Tiff insisted it was too far to walk. Us girls were not complaining. Hilarious to discover it was literally a 10 minute walk. I should have remembered that from the last time we went.
The fireworks were incredible and they really set the tone for the evening.
We beat the boys back to the house and Tiffany had been hard at work cooking all day. Sammy (another of QVC's model), who was there with her adorable partner Simon, and I looked on in awe at the spread thinking, "how on Earth?!"
The men were in their element with the simply delicious steak and kidney pies, mushroom pies and a shepherd's pie. Tiff makes pies for Larry and then I bring the emptys back in the car to be refilled. Hilarious. Surely easier to try and cook myself…I don't think so…
Tiff's was so scrummy and so was the sticky toffee pudding. I had a sneaky taste when Larry wasn't looking.
A truly great night.
Christmas is on its way!
