Morning…my weather predictions are rubbish. I decided to walk to a party down the road when it was dry, but the heavens opened mid journey and I was drenched. I did try to take shelter in a bush, then stand under a tree, but it wasn’t really helping, so I gave up and arrived looking soggy and with moist, suede boots stuck to my feet! The party was great and the photo call at the end of the evening by lots of us in our musical society was hilarious. Several photos were taken where the picture seemed blurred or dark. We decided to use a flash on an iPhone and got the best one yet, not a face, body or person recognisable, instead a ghostly, foggy white splodge!
We had all drunk a couple of glasses of Pimms or Prosecco, so the photo became hysterical…”that’s the best picture of us yet!” ” I can’t see my hair!” ” I particularly like the lighting in this photo..it is very flattering!” “we do look amazing!” Finally, we took a photo that actually recognised us as people, although I was squashed by a heavy lump and the man sitting on me thought we were lumpy cushions..it didn’t stop him from sitting on us mind!
In the middle of the night a very kind friend returned my son from the Cabaret that they had being doing in London at a high security army barracks. It was very successful and the party holder was apparently extremely happy with their performance.
They were all given a momento to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo which is why singing Abba songs along with traditional patriotic ones was so apt!
Whilst the Cabaret didn’t finish in the middle of the night, the older performers and some parents all went to a party afterwards, which meant they came home very, very late!. Why is that drunk teenagers can’t do quiet? I was woken for the second night running at 4am by loud banging of doors, heavy footsteps, toilet flushing, taps running and no consideration at all for anyone sleeping with the door ajar.
It’s Fathers Day, so Happy Fathers Day to all dads and granddads out there and especially to my dad who is one of the best.
