Well Imust say that the meal today took the minimum of preparation, was easy to present even in its odd dishes and cutlery, and was all very nice.
My salads worked quite well. I took Rachel's advice and served the hard boiled eggs with just lettuce and mayo and without the pineapple. The giant cous-cous salad and the French bean salad both worked well and took no time at all to prepare.
My great grand daughter, Ula, is a delight at eight months old. They are calling to see me in the morning before they begin their return journey to Glasgow.
