Becky rang me early this morning to check that we would be at home for a visit from her and her friend Alda. Almost as soon as I had put the phone down I received a text from Tess saying that she, Mat, and Poppy were in Poole. They all therefore visited at lunchtime when we were treated to one of Jackie’s delicious cauliflower and Stilton soups.
Poppy, at first assisted by her mother, insisted on self service. Not much food ended up on her face. Note the grip on her plate.
Soon after this she took a nap on Grannie’s lap.
Among other activities this afternoon, I gave Tess a photograph album and printed up most of the pictures I have taken of our granddaughter. Tess happily laid them out in the book.
This evening we all dined at Dynasty in Brockenhurst. My choice of meal was venison jalfrezi, special fried rice, and onion bhaji. I drank Kingfisher. Waiters served the adults and Poppy reached out for poppadoms on which she chomped.
