Best bits of 2011: Part 6

Come Dine With Me

In an effort to ensure that we would hang out more this year, my London based friendship group undertook a CDWM type challenge.

I loved hosting and am delighted that our French style evening meant I picked up a paintbrush:

Some of my favourite memories, not just of the experience but of the year, are at one of our practice rounds at my maid-of-honour-to-be's house. The evening started with a tale about the overly expensive which made it hilarious when it was covered with a succession of staining agents. It was a moment of triumph when a bottle of white wine was poured over a spilt glass of red and started to drip through the table onto the floor. We went mad with a box of mingles but the star of the show was Andy's magnificent cheesecake.
