Etiquette Hell would definitely think this was unconscionable.

My cousin T's widower is remarrying. He and his wife-to-be are asking guests for assistance in setting up the hall out the back of the church, and assisting with put away at the end of the 'afternoon tea reception'.

They've just sent out an email to a handful of friends/guests asking if people are willing to help with one, the other, or both. The party itself is catered, and the caterers will be managing most of the food and utensil clean-up, but the hall needs to be set up and taken down again.

There's a part of me that's a bit annoyed at being asked, a part of me that's willing to be helpful, and a part of me that's kind of gleeful at doing something so "anti-etiquette" (where the rule is that one is guest or one is servantry, and never the twain shall meet).

Hockey training tonight. I didn't realise it was going to be 'warm' (16C) and wore heavy stuff. Which I then had to run around in and it was hot!

Also, new training coach, who runs us a lot more, uses different terminology, and is very verbal in his explanation (not always the most helpful with women who are tired and not entirely compos mentis).

It was an interesting session. Good, because I needed the run and got to practise some skills, but so tiring.

Now I'm home, and all I want to do is go to bed. Which I think I will. And may very well fall asleep before midnight at this rate...

Oh, and the osteo stuck more needles in me today, so they ache too.
