Many thanks for all your lovely comments and good wishes for Rory's 50th birthday party. We all had a very happy afternoon eating, drinking and seeing old friends and family. All the hard work and organisation paid off, it all looked pretty and there was enough to eat and drink... times a zillion! Everyone got sent home with four-pint containers of milk, cartons of cream, tubs of rice salad, left-over scones and extra quiche.
The strawberry cream teas were hugely popular and we all scoffed loads. Pimms went down well too.
Now we're all shattered but the house still looks fab and there's a cellar full of wine and I haven't had to cook for three days!
I thought I'd share this last picture with you to make you laugh as it did me...
After days of polishing, cleaning and scrubbing the house looked a picture. Bunting up, fairy lights twinkling, food ready, drinks ready to pour, five minutes to go, and what do I suddenly see on the windowsill?
This attractive little display, left over from breakfast, tucked away and forgotten...
