A Recital

This was definitely a recovery day, starting late in the morning when, Sam, Holly, Malachi and Orlaith arrived from Elizabeth’s.

After more chatting we lunched on Jackie’s cold meats salad, then settled down to games.

Ellie guided Holly in the Shakespeare game which had been purchased at The Globe theatre a few days ago.

Later Becky, Holly, Orlaith, Sam, and Malachi played

Champed Up with their devices linked to

the television screen.

After Jackie’s refreshing cold meats and salad lunch we flopped and chatted until

Danni arrived with Jack and Ella.

Ellie went for a walk on her bouncer.

Elizabeth joined us with a vast tub of her legendary spaghetti Bolognese; Cook’s vegetarian lasagna, and plentiful perfect garlic bread, with lemon drizzle cake and a chocolate one. I drank Guv’nor Spanish red wine and I didn’t keep track of what the others enjoyed.

Afterwards Malachi entertained us with a lively violin recital

which was thoroughly enjoyed by his audience.

Soon after my sister, our niece, and our great-niece and -nephew returned to their home, Sam, Holly, Malachi and Orlaith left to sleep at Pilley.


  1. It looks like a fun day. I would have enjoyed the violin recital, although much of that techo-gaming would have been beyond me. My friends and I still stick to cards or dominoes.

    1. Thanks very much, Linda. I am a dab hand at pleading age and slow reactions to get me out of techo-gaming.

  2. You had a recital, joyful family time and a feast! Yay for vegetarian lasagna and garlic bread. I love Ella’s expression with the big eyes. 🙂

  3. What joyful fun! Lots to entertain everyone! How wonderful of Malachi to give a recital for all of you! :-)|
    I bet everyone slept well after all that fun! 😉
    I so enjoy listening to the violin! One of my nieces plays beautifully! 🙂
    And we have two well-seasoned violins that my mother-in-law played when she was a little girl. 🙂
    I think Ellie, Ella, and Jack would’ve been THE bestest entertainment! They are at such great ages! ❤️ 🙂 ❤️ 🙂 ❤️ 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂 ❤️
