So this was something quite normal, and we were doing it! Kids fancy dress party for Halloween, and we all managed to go, and stay for the duration!
Fin was a spider, and Ross was a pumpkin, obviously. At least until his laxative kicked in, after which he had to get changed into a monkey outfit...
Good time had by all, and shows us that it can be done. Next stop Christmas parties...
By the way, the fund-raising for NSE continues! My cousin Julie's husband Rory and Dave, a good friend from when I worked in Bedford, have both signed-up to run the London Marathon in April 2009 in order to raise money for the NSE. Plus, a group of slightly crazy kite-surfers, including my brother William, are planning a sponsored crossing of the Irish Sea in order to raise money for the NSE, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and the RNLI, all fantastic charities.
The money raised for NSE will be used to fund research into epilepsy and, you never know, may lead to a breakthrough which will help Ross. The link to Dave's fundraising webpage is http://www.justgiving.com/runforross and I know the other 2 are being finalised, so I'll send them out as soon as they're ready.
An amazing effort from all these guys and I look forward to Ross thanking each of them personally when they finish.
