So far this summer, apart from Nicole and her family we have had a handfull of folk over to eat and some have stopped overnight. Last week we had Clive and his family over for the evening. We chose an Italian theme with salamis and salads followed by home made pasta and a trio of deserts. Clive’s son had brought over a Chinese lantern come hot air balloon which we set off and watched drift into the clear night sky. We had an outdoor fire in Ken’s fire basket and I got my fire clubs out and taught Matteus some simple tricks.
We also looked after Alison and Peter’s dog, daisy for a few days. It is amazing how quickly you get used to having a dog around and how you miss them when they are gone again. One day we shall get a dog again.
