Yesterday my husband and I were due to attend his club’s annual dinner on HMS Belfast, but due to CV it was postponed. An email was sent through on Friday that if possible still dress up and take photos! What a lovely idea!
I had booked afternoon tea to be delivered earlier in the week so the challenge was on.
In the morning breakfast was melon balls for me then onto my tasks: bread making, picture arranging and a walk round the garden.
Andrew’s mother-in-law has written a book about the ribbon boys rebellion ‘Bone and beauty’ – (which I love as Bone is her maiden name). It arrived yesterday from Australia, and I had hoped to take it with me next month to get it signed.
An amazingly talented woman, I’m thrilled for her and will enjoy reading the fruits of her labours. No doubt her family are rightly proud of her too.
By now the afternoon was with us and time to get ready for afternoon tea. The five of us all made an effort which was lovely.
After tea a few changes into something more comfortable and we played a, on occasion, heated game of monopoly. The afternoon swiftly moved into the evening, and what a lovely way to spend it!
