And that’s how you host a Christmas party.
Whenever I want people to leave I’m going to borrow “Jilly is tired.”

That is bloody brilliant. Just grooming husband to go round on Christmas Day teling folk ‘Rachel’s tired. I’m gonna see how that works out

I’m going to train my 6 year old to do it

God, I absolutely adore her. I don't even mind that life has contained many fewer parties and ravishing, sweary, unreliable men than I was led to expect by reading her religiously in my teens.

One of my favourite tips from Jilly about getting rid of unwanted guests was to 'turn the heating off'. Love her.

No wonder she’s so tired at the end of the night.

And, entirely appropriately for a writer, these guys got involved too.
The ever fabulous Jilly Cooper. Going to start walking round the shop at closing time saying "Piccadilly is tired" instead of "we're closing in five minutes". She is hundred per cent right about party food too https://t.co/xXhJRZxcPo
