For new comers, Site 370 can be very misleading as there are a lot of trails from 370. However for those of us who know where Sigi lives that is no problem, but my heart always sinks as I have not got used to the hill from her house. Since the first time I stepped on that hill I have always huffed and puffed going up.
This week, I arrived late at Sigi's house and all the hens had already gone in. As I was not feeling very well I did not want to tackle the hill on my own so I decided to take a short walk, along the road and quickly got back to the house, and had a chat with Survivor.
Two front runners, Lee and Carol were out at 6.05. Since I did not go in I then went round asking hens what the run was like. I was told that after the hll the run was very interesting and that I probably could have managed it. First check was found by Sita, first time guest, Lee found the second check and the third check was found by Tango. All were out by 6.30 and had a good shower by the poolside.
The shout out began with teh arrival of the two JMs dressed as Santa and each carrying a bag of presents, all the way from Greenland for the very few hens who had been left stranded in Brunei. The shout out had only gone half way when the JMs were interrupted by the music from the Three Wise Kings (Tango, Mad Marg and Lynn) and baby Jesus (Dizzy). They entertaind us with a few songs, while pieces of gold (chocolate) were tossed around and incense burned as baby Jesus lay on the floor.
After the entertainment Juergen Broda, Sigi's husband, our Honorary member was called out of the kitchen, and after having been ordered to remove the apron and to put his kitchen towel down, he was given a down-down, for once again, he made and painted some beautiful H3 signs for us. What could we do without him? Thanks Juergen.
The evening continued with the draw for the Xmas presents for everyone present including Juergen. Each hen was only allowed three seconds in which to pull out a present from the bag.
The Hashit was awarded to the JM Amanda, who confessed that she did not sign in or out, and Satu Lagi and Dizzy for not signing out the previous week. However amanda craftily decided that as it was a festival run no one should have a hashit. We then sang Christmas carols and a few jokes were cracked.
The Hares put on a mouth watering dinner which included Turkey with stuffing, potations and vegetables followed by dessert. Thank you very much Bini Hutan (Sigi), Peahen (Bettina) and Gaby. All in all it was a great evening!
