Miss T ‘at home’

To celebrate my birthday we had a little ‘at home’ on Saturday. The cakes were made by Dr Bones’ friend Jude. Jude should be made an MBE for services to cake. See yourself, she sells them at Wells Stores in Abingdon.

There was some CHEESE too…with THREE types of the wonderful Dr Karg.

Lorna gave me some amazing flowers from the Eynsham Emporium. As you can see, I didn’t have a vase big enough!

Here is Peter enjoying some DRINK – as you can see he dressed exquisitely so he could be awarded more cake!

Here is David enjoying Dr Bones…I think they look like they’re at different parties. The Boy thinks that Dr Bones is auditioning for a remake of ‘The Lair of the White Worm’.

And here is The Boy with some cake.

A good time was had by all…I’d love to know what Leo was thinking. You can see what he’s been doing!

Report from the Earthquake Zone

It was my nephew Richard’s 10th bithday party today, so we had a clan gathering down in Kent. This morning there was an earthquake in Ashford, where my brother lives, but we all slept through it.

My sister Hanna, was as usual the hostess with the mostess.

My bro, Jerry, was delighting my Ma with Australian sayings – for example, “she’s so ugly she’d scare a hungry dog out of a butcher’s shop”

Rachel (Jerry’s little girl) ejoyed the cat from next door.

She was very interested in the guinea pigs.

Very, very interested.

And manged to get up close and personal.

I have to say I was rather keen on them myself. This magnificent little boar is ‘Mashy’.

I just loved his delicate little paws.

Izzie, Richard’s sister, has just taken up the flute. When she’s had a few more lessons, perhaps she’ll blow rather than suck 8-).

Now what was that report about not allowing children to have alcohol?

Clearly there’s a link with violence.

A bit of mob justice will stop him becoming a delinquent!
