(Sounds like confession, forgive me Father...).
A brief catch-up:
My dear friend and second mum Pilly died. I will put up a post about her soon. Enough time has elapsed that I think I can say what I need to without getting mawkish.
We finally got a new roof on our house, the bucket we had under the ceiling has now been retired.
Angela and I are both pretty healthy, considering... Some of the tablets I have been on for my heart rhythmn have managed to knock out my thyroid gland but I'm still fit enough to walk up hills...
As I mentioned in a previous post the Legal Eagle and her Beau got married, we had dinner round with her and some other friends last Sunday...
|Next to Angela; Gianluca, Jo and Irina: next to me; The Legal Eagle, her Beau, and Harry|
As usual, the food was excellent, especially the puddings.....
|(Clockwise from top, Angela's Apricot and Marzipan Loaf, French Apple tart and Hazlenut Meringue sandwich).|
I can personally vouch for the deliciousness of all of them!
To walk off the excess calories some of us took a stroll round to Waterlow Park, only a few minutes away from the Eagle's Nest.
The late afternoon sun was peeping through. I think even grumpy old Karl Mark looked a bit happier than normal.
