Well last night was a first…in my 51years of going to friends for supper ,we were given a questionaire. These are the questions and my answers are in brackets .- this is NOT made up ….1) State of the house ? ( would have preffered glass in the toilet door window – too much of a sensory experiece for everyone else in the house ). 2) Hostess’s hairstyle ? ( Didn’t know the beehive was back in fashion ). 3) Hostess’s outfit ? ( not sure the skirt and pop sox is such a good look ). 4. Starter ( absolutely bloody brilliant , top score , loved the griddled courgettes, peppers , mint and feta salad- we’ll be back ). 5) main course ? (- not as good as the starter). 6) pudding ? ( loved the hot choc sauce – real comfort food – pity hostess ate 2/3 of it.) 7) card game ( was Ok til round 3 when John didn’t put a foot wrong and swept the board .BUT did like playing with MY brand new’English Heritage Stately Homes ‘card pack that I bought in Woodbridge tourist information Office – which indicates what a sad life I have as I get so excited about such a purchase ). 8) Husband’s conversation ( better than Hostess’s )
Then today…………… we had a scarey moment .We were walking ‘The Thame river Walk’ with Ali and Andy , who now live in Thame .Delilah was behaving herself, when all of a sudden a huge herd of steer came bounding across the field and we all had to leap back over the stile and make a massive detour. across 3 of Farmer Giles’s newly planted fields. We were so traumatised we had to come back and have a huge cream tea.
Points to note – I made the starter. Delilah is a dog.
