A real party
Suz and Russ put on a Saturday "afternoon tea" for us all in celebration of Nanna turning 90. And at Nanna's request it was a real party with party games. We first played bingo then pass the parcel then a fantasy game of Joe's devising. And it was great fun. It kept us thoroughly livened up.
And then there was the afternoon tea. The ladies had gone to great trouble so there was an amazing array of tempting food on display. I have been rather sandwich deprived lately so I got into some excellent sandwiches. But there were all sorts of cakey things too.
Then there was the photography. Susan lined us all up and took lots of photos. She really worked hard at it. There should be some below shortly.
Paul had arrived back from England just that morning so was less active than usual. Initially he just sat there on a settee with his little daughter blinking happily on his lap, a picture of contentment. She will turn one soon. His trip to England to investigate the possibility of living there has left him very disillusioned. He encountered too many of what the English call "chavs". He thinks that England's chavs are worse than our "Yobbos".
Joe and I sat together for much of the time so we were each able to observe the other violating all principles of our diet.
