We have been spending the weekend with Sarah/Mikey and their family in the South Midlands. Motored over there on Friday, and on Saturday Sarah put on a magnificent lunch for us all, including Mikey's parents Frank and Jane, and his Aunt Sue and Uncle Geoffrey. The top photo is of most of the main course, but Sarah had also made her speciality dish of a sort of roast potatoes done with red peppers and a continental cheese (sorry- memory fails me here, but the memory of the dish is still on the palate - superb).
The above dish is of the choices of pudding at the same meal. All LISH!!!!!
Don't quite know how that happened ? The above photo (however 'dishy') is of granddaughter Lucy, sitting (for some reason known only to herself) on the sideboard/worktop. It's the picture above that that is of puddings. I would never dream of including a photo of any of my granddaughters among the puddings. Oh well, I'm sure most of you can work it out.
The above photo was taken today, at lunchtime by Lucy. It is of grandson Guy, meself, and Ann.
This one is of Lucy, squatting on the sideboard. Must record that she and Guy are growing up nicely!
Above is a group photo taken today lunch time. Left to right - Ann, Sophie, Lucy, Mikey, Sarah, Amelia, and Guy.
This one was taken by Guy, and is in the same order as the previous photo, save with the absence of Guy to the right, and the presence of meself to the left.
About two hours after the above was taken Guy and Lucy did all the heavy work of loading the car for us, and we took our leave with all of them waving goodbye to us in the front garden. As Ann, who was driving, backed out onto the road she asked me if all was clear to do so. A young lady was carrying a glass tank with a large goldfish in it along the pavement towards us, so I replied "Yes, except for a young lady carrying a goldfish". Ann said "Oh, don't be silly", as wives will at their husbands' attempts at humour, and a moment later braked hard and shouted "There's a young lady carrying a goldfish in a glass tank. Why didn't you warn me?" Sometimes I think that we chaps can't win.
Should add and emphasise that this odd incident did nothing to spoil a lovely weekend. Rather added a light note to our departure. The grandchildren seemed to be enjoying it, and probably know the young lady taking the goldfish for a walk. Takes all sorts!
