“I thought you put on a fantastic show - your food was delicious, decoration gorgeous and the parlour games were a hoot! It would have been great to have more charades, but time is a bit of a factor isn’t it? You gave us extra time and were very patient at the start, so thank you for that. We all thought you were great, were wowed by you.
PS am enjoying tucking into what you left with me - you sure live up to your name!”
