Saturday Guests

We have had a busy, but lovely day today.   Some friends came to visit, from London.  The morning was busy, busy, tidying up, cooking a nice lunch etc.  They were late because the M1 has been closed for two days, following a big fire early on Friday morning; they had to come by a slightly different route, but were here in time for a late lunch. 

We had a Mediterranean style of lunch today - pasta ribbons, lamb stew with tomatoes, red wine, peppers, olives and herbs, bread, olives, breadsticks, parmesan...

Then we sat in the garden, chatting, playing the guitar (well J. and our friend G. did that), drinking our coffee, jumping on the trampoline (a certain small girl was doing this!).
Lunch was yummy, but we needed a walk afterwards - to make room for pudding!

We went down to the riverside, for a little while.

It was a warm and sunny day today, so we had a lovely walk, across the field from the village, then along the riverside, to the weir.
J. talking about the bridge!

The whole family together.

Of course, once we got back we felt hungry again - lemon torte and chocolate fudge cake were very welcome, along with nice coffee. 

It was a really nice afternoon.  I hope we can do it again soon!
