Elizabeth popped over this morning to collect some wood and nails to repair a fence on a temporary basis until Aaron can do it for her. She fixed a time with him.
Having concentrated on general garden views yesterday I took a closer look at
a variety of daffodils;
and Amanogawa cherry blossom.
This afternoon I watched the Six Nations rugby international between Scotland and France. Just before half time the game erupted into a 30 man handbags session. One player threw a punch and was sent off. The game deteriorated after that.
Elizabeth, Danni, Andy and Ella came to dinner.
Before hand the usual fun ensued. Elizabeth and Danni graced the white sofa.
Ella has taken a shine to the bell with which Jackie wakes me when I have fallen asleep during Bargain Hunt.
She also has a new game which involves a tender “Aahh” as she settles her Teddy down to sleep;
she is not averse to ditching him when distracted by her Dad.
The meal consisted of Jackie’s sublime beef pie; roast potatoes; crunchy carrots, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts; tender runner beans, and tasty gravy. This was followed by rhubarb crumble and custard. Elizabeth, Danni, and I finished the Cabernet Sauvignon, The Culinary Queen drank Hoegaarden, and Andy drank Diet Coke,
Jackie served up to eager participants.
Ella tucks in beside her mother.
Jackie took the two photographs of the infant enjoying her Kit Kat dessert.
