1. Put on ridiculous music – like 1970s disco.
  2. Feel the music and live it
  3. Have a mock food fight with bits that wouldn’t go into the pot anyway.
  4. Dance and shake that booty to 1970s Disco.
  5. Involve the dogs, particularly Watson, who comes running to see what fun we’re having. Ignore the cat.
  6. Realise that the cooking that would have taken 2 hours, in fact took four and a half, but you enjoyed every minute of it. Where did time fly?
  7. Look utterly perplexed when the door bell rings, and the guests stand on the doorstep, and you’ve not even showered yet.
