Taking your point on numbers I will bring just one bottle if that helps.
I’m bringing a mag. If I were the only person to bring double, I’d feel lonely and vulnerable and <insert stuff here>. We surely wouldn’t want that. So you do your special thing; I’ll do mine; and everybody wins. Happiness!

PS: it’s good whatever you decide. We like Port. We have some. We’re winning.

I will bring two. I am now rethinking what to bring. Whatever happens it will be two. Do I just turn up clutching bottles and decant on arrival or is there anything more I need to do first?

Standard practice is to decant in advance. Screw-cap wine bottles make excellent disposable decanters. Or you could double-decant: decant into something clean; rinse original bottle; decant back into that; wrap in tin foil so that it’s blind. Sometimes I decant into a proper decanter — maybe more than some others I rather like an old-school proper decanter. Or turn up clutching bottles and decant on arrival.

Would seven bottles between five be too much for a school night? Should the magnum be saved for another day?

Both of these reductions seem to have been implemented (which is fine), but only one is reflected on the placemats.
This seems to have worked out perfectly.

Julian, can you please submit the food order tomorrow?
Now easier than from work. Or you could.
Send now or tell me who to send to tomorrow.

You are not being helpful. I Cc'd you. Did I send it to the email address you normally use?

Thank you. The B&F has asked to move us to the upstairs room, as green room is needed. Of course I conceded, but it'll be a squeeze.

I fluttered my eyes, we’re back in the Green Room.
