Ralph’s Housewarming Party

The apartment finished. Ute here for a short 5 day holiday. I decided it was the perfect time to have my housewarming party. My very first !! I am so glad that I had it. Cementing friendships. Enjoying great food and company. A good excuse to grip the waists of so many pretty women !! Must have another party soon !!Β

    • Hi Wanda. Thanks for the big hug. Love it !! I am feeling so much better now I have stopped taking the tablets as they were addictive. I am still not right and the doctors haven’t a clue what’s wrong with me so they tried to dope me up with drugs. No way am I going down that road !! I hope you are well, full of life and have a lovely weekend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  1. I almost feel as if I had been there with so many cool pictures! It looked like everyone had a good time. You’re a good host Ralph.


    • Hi Linda. I am so sorry that I could not invite all my wonderful followers so I am pleased that this slideshow gave you a small insight to the lovely evening. In fact there were 3 1/4 WP bloggers there …. myself, Ute, David and Manny.

      I was very lucky to have so much help in setting up the party which made the perfect evening. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • 3 1/4? Pregnancy, Mini Me, or a 4-legged blogger?

        I enjoyed the slideshow. I enjoy all of your slideshows. They’re interesting. But back to the subject, I’m glad it was a perfect evening.

        I’ll take that big hug and return one of mine right back to you!


      • The one quarter is Manny the teddy bear. His owner, Marsha from California, may start a new blog with Manny as the author. Manny is on a world tour of WP bloggers. Started with me, now is in London with Ute and in a couple of weeks is on his way to Australia I think with Carol the eternal traveller.

        Expect another interesting slideshow early next week as I want this post to stew a bit. I have 207 in my Inbox and I would like to clear them before my next post. So expect a visit from me soon.

        How about a cuddle. Do you do cuddles ?? πŸ˜€


  2. What a great party it was, Ralph, I thoroughly enjoyed it as I met all your wonderful friends too. It was fun to talk to the Spanish couples and with more wine it went swell. Super party, super food, super people and super host. Thank you so much, amigo!


    • You are so welcome my amiga. πŸ˜€ I am so happy that you enjoyed the evening Ute and maybe in the future you will return to enjoy another one of my parties.

      I have one more slideshow to post next week of your last day and that’s your holiday covered.

      I was so impressed with your driving on a variety of very difficult mountainous roads. I did not have to scream in panic once πŸ˜‰ Well done.

      You were also the perfect guest and I am so pleased that you were my first visitor. Thank you for our 5 days together I did enjoy the holiday with you.

      I am now looking forward to Marsha’s posts of you and Manny in London.

      Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Ralph, I have to thank you for my wonderful holiday , you have been fantastic and I can only recommend the 5 star hotel Ralph. You have been great and I have wonderful memories to cherish.
        Keep my favourite chair warm….. Ute xx


      • Uh !! What !! Oh hi Ute. You have just woken me up in your favourite chair πŸ˜‰

        This was our last few minutes at Malaga airport when you let Manny out of your bag to say goodbye to me.

        I enjoyed your company Ute and I hope you are having a great time back home in London. πŸ˜€ xox


  3. Just wonderful photos, Ralph πŸ™‚



    • Thank you my friend for such a gracious comment. Have a great weekend Noeleen. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • I bet (in secret. I won’t tell anyone !!) you are the life and soul of a party Gallivanta πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  4. That looks like a real fun party you had. No, I am not a party guy but yours would be an exception to go πŸ™‚


    • If you knocked at my door I would have never turned you away YC. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  5. Hey Ralph!! Looks like that was a fabulous party! That’s all I can say right now because after seeing the photos of all of that delicious looking food, I am so hungry, I got to go find me something to eat. See Ya’ . . .


    • Thank you for your lovely comment Wambui my friend. You have got me thinking about eating now !!! Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • I could be a party animal as well Julita my friend !!!! πŸ˜‰

      Well, let’s see. 23 guests of various nationalities, 2 Spanish staff, 4 teddy bears from various countries and 3 cats.

      Love Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  6. Every party needs a “Spanish Ana.” πŸ™‚ Looks like a jolly good time was had by all, Ralph.


    • Hi Sylvia. I totally agree with you that every party needs a Spanish Ana. If I was preparing the food over a hot stove I would be standing there for hours saying to myself “Why is this stove hot ??” πŸ˜‰

      Yes. We all had a great time. Happy Friday my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  7. Looks like a good time was had by all, now we need to see photo’s of the finished apartment…..bet you are glad to have all the stuff done with….


  8. Yes, I love parties where the food is scrumptious and the music lively. But what makes a party great is the people. Looks like you had a wonderful time! πŸ˜€


  9. Wonderful! And – even more wonderful that Ute was there for the celebration!
    Your commentary on the photos always crack me up πŸ˜†
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hello RoSy. Thank you so much for your cracking comment, quite wonderful. Big hugs. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  10. What a lovely party and the food ………. I only just come for ….. you πŸ™‚ ! Oh I like parties so much, we here in Holland we have tomorrow evening one in a Antilles Theme, My brother in law John will cook a lot of lovely things from the Caribbean and we already are going there in the afternoon to begin with some aperitifs, I can`t wait πŸ™‚


    • Good morning my friend. Party Day for you !! Yippee !! How exciting !! I hope you all have a great time with that Caribbean flavour, music and friendship 😎

      So you came just for me Shiro ? That’s not a suntan I have. It’s me blushing 😳

      Have a lovely day. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Thanks Ralph, I didn`t know I,ve make you blush……hahaha. And I just came for you because you are my friend πŸ™‚ and so we can have a lot of fun ! Have a great weekend and see you soon on your lovely blog πŸ™‚ ! Xoxo


      • Hahaha !! Have a lovely party ……. even if it is without me πŸ˜‰ xox


  11. Yes you are one heck of a par-tey guy, Ralph.:-) Love the way you entertain your friends with some great hospitality. I’m glad that you are enjoying your life and it seems that maybe your health is a bit better now? I truely hope so. Ute enjoyed her stay and that is really great that she could visit you. But on to your question. I’m not a party goer and neever have been. My life style is far removed from anyone that throws a party. The friiends that I have don’t have parties and don’t go to parties. But, I approve of anyone that can party and have a good time with a group of friends. πŸ™‚


    • Hi Yvonne. I have always imagined you to be a party goer especially in your teens and twenties. At the barn dances wowing the local lads and making all the other girls jealous of the attention you were getting πŸ˜€ It’s never too late to start. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  12. Keep up the work, smiles, food and hugs – as you can see there are many out here who care about you.


    • Sir. Your comment will be the most remembered and treasured that I have ever received. Thank you so much. Ralph πŸ˜€


  13. What do you mean, do I love parties, Ralph? i adore parties and this one of yours is the ultimate one. What with all those bottles of wine, all that food and most of all those lovely women. I am a bit jealous that I wasn’t able to attend. Do I imagine there were more women? or the pictures tell me right? I feel as if I was part of that party, after viewing the slide show. Thank you for sharing! I’m glad Ute enjoyed her visit too!


    • Wow. A party lady !! I really missed this one by not inviting you Liz. Still I am sure to have many more in the future. I’m going to one on Thursday … should be fun !! Have a happy Monday my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Enjoy the Thursday party. You must be having one heck of a time! Life is what you make it Ralph, and you are sure making something out of it!


      • Got to Liz. As I am living on my own I can see how easy it is to become a boring stay-at-home. I don’t want to go down that route. Got to have fun and enjoy life. xox

  15. Hola, Ralph, You were right – AGAIN. I hadn’t seen THIS party blog post. You are having so many parties, I can’t keep up! WOW what a party! Even Manny had his share of beautiful women. He is never going to be a happy bear at home -ever again. He had more fun at your house, and felt like such a grown up bear. He loved having his picture taken in his new hat and necklace. He wrote to me and asked if he could go back to Spain after going to Australia instead of coming home! I told him only if I get to go with him and you have another party that I could attend! πŸ™‚ Lots of love to you, MFR xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox Thanks for keeping Manny for so long, and sending me so many lovely photos. πŸ™‚


    • Am I ever wrong MVBFM ?? I was very lucky to be the first of a long line of bloggers who will take Manny under their wing throughout the world and give him a good time. He loves women and donuts ….. I taught him that !! So sharpen your pencil Marsha for his adventures will make a great book or photo-video. He is always welcome to return to Spain as Fanny & Stanley miss him. Of course you can come to my next party which will probably be my birthday in December. I am looking forward to your next post on Thursday of the Adventures of Manny. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • No more parties until December? 😦 Maybe you should come to our house instead. We are supposed to have 10 more days of 100 degree temperatures! That should be great! Swim every day. We have a huge tourism industry here, I just read. πŸ™‚


      • No more parties until December in my apartment. There are bound to be loads of parties at other venues till then.
        I will consider your lovely offer Marsha. Maybe next year as I am setting up a love boat cruise for myself for this winter. πŸ˜€


  16. So sorry I missed the party, but enjoyed the photos and also, the tour of your apt.!! Looks like a wonderful time had by all!


    • Hi Robin. I’m sorry that you were not invited but I am so pleased that you enjoyed the slideshows of the party and the apartment. I hope to have another party here in December so get your party frock on πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€
