Party. Two of # ?. I Need Supervision !

An OMG moment !



Spluttering coffee on your keyboard is inevitable if you read this, even if you are not drinking coffee !


I woke up with a start ! Glanced at my alarm clock. Panic ! It’s eight o’clock ! I slept for four hours. A four hour siesta ! Got to move as the party starts in half an hour !

Launching myself out of bed, cats flying off the covers. It’s getting dark and so cold outside. That’s unusual ! I dressed. An added sweater and coat as it’s a rooftop party.

I was happy that I left my apartment not too late and that I was dressed up warmly. A brisk walk through the village laden with a bottle of wine and another of Cava (champagne).

That’s weird ! No old men sitting on the wall. I waved to the postman, watched the workmen in the road, villagers with bags of rolls from the baker’s. Nothing registered, except, what’s going on (?) as I banged at the party door. Locked ! No one about ! Many times I called up. Nothing !

The sun shone onto me between the houses.

An OMG moment !

It’s nine o’clock IN THE MORNING !

I was totally confused the whole way home. Is it Wednesday ? Have I missed the party as it might be Thursday morning ? Do I need supervision ? Parental guidance perhaps ? A woman keeping me on a lead ? Heck !

For heaven’s sake don’t tell Bill & Max that I was kicking their door in at 9am, the morning of the party !


Β The Party



Up on the roof of Bill & Max’s house in southern Spain




Friends indeed !












Food ! What’s left of it !







We all sang this !

“Easy (like Sunday morning)” from Commodores by Lionel Richie. Released: 1977.





And what the heck is this Hilda !



Would you have come with me at 9am ?

  1. Raver Ralph!! Only you could turn up to a party 12 hours too early haha! I do know what you mean about over sleeping on the siesta though, I’ve done it myself and wake up feeling very disorientated – especially when you plan on just having an hours kip and next thing you know it’s early in the morning. Looks like a fun party though and a lovely roof terrace. Glad you had fun xox


    • Hi Lottie πŸ˜€ Good morning……well, I hope it’s Saturday morning ! Is it ? πŸ˜‰ Thank heavens I am not the only one going loopy. It must be due to the sun, sea, sex and sangria of Andalucia, Spain. For me, achieving one out of those four is brilliant…….the sun ! Have a great weekend my friend. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Lynne πŸ˜€ Yes, it was fun, going twice to the same party ! Ralph xox ❀


  2. MFR I did that once in the afternoon when I was a teen, and woke up late for school, Mom was at work, and it was dark, but it was dark because it was night, not morning. πŸ™‚ I guess if you don’t do that once in your life, you just don’t nap enough! πŸ™‚ Love the music, too. If feel like I’m at a party. I don’t want to quit writing. The music will stop! πŸ™‚


    • Hello MVBFM πŸ˜€ Wow, you did it as well ! I am feeling so much better that I am not alone in feeling so stupid over a lapse in the time dimension. Dr Who would feel at home with us ! Don’t stop the music. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀

      • Pretty funny video! I let the music go till it finished. it’s done now. New music, please! πŸ™‚


  3. The answer to your question is, yes, if they were serving beer. Goodness you had enough wine glasses to cater a restaurant. Can’t imagine a problem staying warm with all that wine, but your idea and mine about staying warm are quite different.


    • Hi Pam πŸ˜€ So you are a “yes” woman then ! I think I know where you are going about keeping warm. My problem is a great lack of single women around here ! πŸ˜‰ You have just given me an idea for my next post my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  4. No, I would not go with you at 9:00 am to a 9:00 pm party!!!!! 😎
    My beauty needs all the sleep it can get, so I make sure! πŸ˜‰
    However, it is TIFF time in Toronto, and I went to a big TIFF party …… a night early!
    Nonetheless, there was an interesting art party ($20,000 paintings) with free wine!
    Yes, I went back the next night. It was much like “A Tale Of Two Cities”.
    _Resa xox


    • Hello Resa πŸ˜€
      No way ! You have no need for beauty sleep !
      I Googled TIFF and searched for ages on the news websites and couldn’t find you on any red carpet……even the day before ! πŸ˜‰
      “Tale of Two Cities” ? You did go to the right city, Toronto, yes ?
      Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


      • πŸ˜€ You are very sweet!
        You won’t find me on a red carpet. That’s all about the Stars, producers and Directors. However, If I spilled red wine on a Star’s white gown…. that might get in a pic! “lol” πŸ™‚
        Yes, I am in the right city. It was like “A Tale of Two Cities” because on night 1, it was a vintage brick building, very low key, not many people inside.
        Night 2 was a flowy white tented entrance with limos, lights, cameras, lots of security and tons of people inside and out. (I only hope no one saw me get off the streetcar! πŸ˜€ xox ❀


      • Oh ! That’s a shame that you didn’t get the red carpet treatment. Maybe next time TIFF is on !
        Red & white wine could be a theme for your next art gown my friend. πŸ˜€
        I am with you now ! Definitely venue opposites. I would have loved to experience the Night 2……….streetcar and all πŸ˜€


  5. I am just glad to see you having fun with your friends πŸ™‚


    • Hi Not πŸ˜€ Thank you. We did have a great time and Bill & Max have promised to have another roof top party soon. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Annie πŸ˜€ A tad early ? You can say that again ! I would have made a good German if I took my beach towel in the morning and placed it on the best chair πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ I am just as curious ! Hilda took the photographs for me on my camera. Give her a few drinks and goodness knows what she took a photograph of. Ralph πŸ˜€


  6. Haha πŸ™‚ You must have slept thinking about the party, maybe even saw it in your dream. But dressing up for the party and reaching the venue is phenomenal. πŸ™‚


    • Hi skd πŸ˜€ I think you have hit the nail on the head ! It’s all a dream. Even writing this reply. Perhaps I was sleepwalking which is not a pretty sight for the local villagers πŸ˜‰ lol Ralph xox ❀

    I love your posts, they make me smile.


    • Hi Karen πŸ˜€ Welcome to my corner of WP mayhem ! Thank heavens I am not alone with this. At the time I thought I was totally bonkers. Thank you for your lovely comment my new friend. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Gallivanta πŸ˜€ I wish you were there with me as I could have left you at the door on a folding chair, thermos flask and a newspaper in hand ready for the rush when the doors opened in 12 hours time. There again. Perhaps not ! Ralph xox ❀


      • lol. I doubt if you would be too happy with a rug as the day heated up to nearly 40deg C. A bikini would be better perhaps πŸ˜‰


  8. Yes, those afternoon naps do take a while to surface from….don’t think I’ve ever arrived at a party that early though! πŸ™‚


    • Hi Wendy πŸ˜€ I was totally confused as I thought I had an afternoon siesta, where in fact I had gone to bed at around 3am in the morning. Maybe I was abducted by aliens….that’s my excuse ! Happy Saturday my friend ! Ralph xox ❀

      PS I'm in your spam again !


      • I made a comment in your last post and it’s gone into your dashboard spam. 😦


      • Right! I did not know, I don’t check the spam, I found others in there too! I have no clue why…


      • Thank you for unspamming my comment Wendy. It’s got nothing to do with you as either WP or Akismet has thrown a wobbly. I am not the only blogger with this spam problem, so I hope WP or Akismet fixes this soon πŸ˜€


  9. that is so funny, and exactly something i would do. yes, i would have come with you at 9am, no questions asked, because i would have just assumed it was me who was confused. looks like a wonderful party!


    • Hi Beth πŸ˜€ I think your reply is even funnier than my post. Reading through these comments there are so many confused bloggers that you would all fit in so well here in my village in Spain. Have a lovely Saturday my friend…..or is it Sunday πŸ˜‰ lol Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Daniela πŸ˜€ Honestly I don’t plan any of my mishaps. I think someone up there reads my blog and gives me plenty to work with. I wonder what’s next ! I hope you had a lovely Sunday my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  10. Oh you do have such a wonderful life! Thanks for sharing your life and laughter. πŸ™‚


  11. I do that far too often, i will wake up at 3am usually in the winter and panic thinking it is 3pm and that i have missed appointments/etc.

    the pictures look like you had fun though


    • Hello Ella πŸ˜€ Wow ! Too often ? Only once frightened the life out of me ! I hope it never happens again to either one of us. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀

  13. Very beautiful pictures from the party, Ralph. I think you had a good time in the company of your friends, images prove it. Good for you.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us your memories.
    Have a peaceful Sunday evening and exceptional new week! πŸ™‚


    • Hi Ştefania πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your lovely and welcome comment. I really do appreciate it πŸ˜€
      Lots of hugs coming your way my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  14. This was so funny, Ralph! I wish I had coffee to sputter it out! I have awakened at night and thought I was late to work, done almost the same thing. Here, winter is so dark in the am and pm that the two can be mixed up, if suddenly awakened! Smiles, Robin


    • Hello Robin πŸ˜€ Maybe we should blame WordPress for keeping us up late or early which tickles a confusion button in the brain. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  15. Love Lionel Richie, Ralph… Swoon, swoon… πŸ˜‰
    You may not believe this, however it’s as true as I sit here typing.
    I’ve just finished Monday morning’s brekky. While eating I thought “Wonder how Ralph is? Haven’t visited with him in ages.”
    Opened my iPad, and checked the mail. Guess whose little face was looking at me? No, not Lionel; it was you, my dear sweet Ralph. So good to see you, you cheeky, may be
    memory challenged friend. Yes, I put my tea down, just in case! Just as well, hahahaaaa Ralph. Nothin’ wring with you, sweet one. Just eager me thinks! Oh yes, and very handsome…! πŸ˜€


    • Hello dear Carolyn πŸ˜€ It has been ages since ……. well,, you know ! πŸ˜‰
      I stumbled across your avatar on a distant blog and wondered if you were back blogging again and, amazingly, you are !
      Oh ! You do flirt so well. I see you have lost none of your touch especially with phrases such as, “Nothin’ wring with you, sweet one.”
      Big hug my friend. Ralph xox ❀


      • Yep; a flirt, indeed Ralph…
        But then; I’m safe… Safe across the sea.
        I can flirt as much as I like, and you will (hopefully) enjoy my flirting knowing that, as much as we try, Ralph, our arms can’t reach the object of our dreams. Oh, swoon, swoon, dear Ralph. I keep myself pure and free, except for the occasional flirt with you, sweet one… Have a great day… xoxoxo. πŸ˜€


  16. I would have come with you at 9 AM, darlin. LOL. Seriously though, don’t feel bad. I’ve done that a couple of times in my life too. πŸ˜€ That is one gorgeous view from that roof and looks like a fun time. Love ya! ❀ XOXOXO


    • Hello dear Elizabeth. That’s nice to hear that I’m not the only one gone loony. It was a lovely view…..before it got dark ! Love you too ! Ralph xox ❀


  17. Of course I would have gone with you at 9am! πŸ™‚
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hi LB πŸ˜€ What a brilliant idea ! At the moment I have a big round thing with bicycle bells on the top beside my bed. The cats hit the ceiling when the alarm goes off πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


  18. Well, if you’d invite me to a party at 9 a.m. in the morning, I’d be surprised, but I’d go with in indeed! πŸ™‚


    • Hello my friend πŸ˜€ Wow ! Thank you Julita ! I’d be surprised too. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  19. Dear friend Ralph,

    Of course I would have come with you at 9 am. AM or PM, it would be an adventure.



    • Hi Nancy my friend πŸ˜€ How sweet of you ! Somehow, even the simplest things seem to end up being an adventure with me. You would be so welcome. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  20. Lol. Too funny! Only YOU Ralph, Only YOU!!! It wouldn’t be you otherwise! πŸ˜‰


    • Hello Loving πŸ˜€ lol. Thank you for understanding me. I will never be bored here. Ralph xox ❀


  21. Ralpha..once again…you devil you. Sorry not to tell you sooner. Got no internet right now except in the library AND Dundee City Council who run the library have deemed my blog unsuitable content so can’t even get into that. ooooh


    • Hi Shey πŸ˜€
      Unsuitable ? No !! Our plan worked ! Your hamstahs and I plotted for weeks so that you would have that “ooooh” experience. It’s hamstah week guys !!
      Come back soon my friend……..make it next week. We’ll tidy up. Promise. Ralph xox ❀


  22. Yes I’ll love to come with you at 09.00 and I was enjoying a lot all the pictures of your friends, love to see the expressions on their face and the variety of all of them ! And what is a party without music, (I adore Easy of Lionel ) so beautiful especially on a roof terrace in Spain in the middle of the summer !! πŸ™‚


    • Hi Serach πŸ˜€ Wow ! You’re another one who wants to party outside Max & Bill’s house at 9am. It would have been quite a day party finishing off on the roof πŸ˜€ Ralph xox ❀
