Angela went on to write as follows:

Thanks to David...who managed to open the front door:
  • to Berry/Brenda/David/Nigel/Bill/Jenny and Roland who helped to set up the room,
  • to Paul for scribing the above most efficiently and legibly in the dark,
  • to Jane for handling the funds and locking up.
I had a great time...hope everyone else did too.
Afraid we didn’t start ‘bang on’ time as the MC decided to wait for a couple of late comers – including the Scribe!

Despite Ken’s absence we did not lack for banter as Berry was on sparkling, if rather cheeky form...don’t think he’s heard what teachers do to naughty boys.
Oh, and he’d like love letters please from any ladies who’d care to write them to him as, apparently, he didn’t get a Valentine from Brenda.

Bill professed himself to be ebullient, after leading us all so tremendously with 'Will The Circle ...' No one would have any doubts about the truth of that. It was a magnificent loud shout of things being fixed and seemed to be heartily enjoyed by all.

Aside from that some CD’s of superb provenance changed hands.
We did all go home quietly at the appointed time.

Now I must look up that word 'ebulliant'.
How can I achieve ebullience?
Is it painful?
