My youngest daughter brought her daughters to visit for a couple of days. The fact that heavy rain fell all day long, causing delay in their arrival until mid-afternoon did not in any way mar a marvellous afternoon and evening.
Elizabeth introduce the girls to bookbinding. Carefully, clearly, and comprehensively she took her great-nieces through the process of making books. They were instructed in selecting and cutting their paper; folding, binding, and stitching the pierced pages; decorating the covers and spines; and finally applying the book press. Their Mum lent an occasional hand.
Afterwards, Elizabeth’s tutees reciprocated with a lesson in making slime. At one point there was a spillage of glitter.
This evening we dined on tender roast lamb; sweet and ordinary roast potatoes; cabbage, carrots, cauliflower. The Culinary Queen drank Hoegaarden, whilst the other three adults drank Trivento reserva Malbec 2017. Later, I believe, we will enjoy Jackie’s apple and apricot crumble with custard, cream, or ice cream according to taste.
