Ruby party

Today, we all piled into daughter.2's for out Ruby wedding anniversary party. We were met by nibbles and a rolling display of out wedding pictures, including the Three Witches, sister.1, dog.1, cat.1 and Morris Minor Van.1. And, of course, a very young ladysolly. And starring the very impressive (but no longer with us because it's the wrong colour these days) moustache.1. Close relatives were there; about 15 of us. Daughter.1 did the catering, which had a red-and-pink theme, including salmon, smoked salmon, gefilte fish and goujons. But the pinnacle of the meal was the raspberry-topped cheesecake, which was really excellent.

I was pretty much out of it - I'd taken Piriton for a very itchy set of insect bites. Piriton makes you drowsy, three glasses of pink champagne makes it worse, and I didn't get much sleep last night because of the irritation. But I wasn't driving, we let the train take the strain.

A great evening out.

  2. Oops. Yes, it was daughter.2 did the catering. How could I have made a mistake like that?
