Sitting room and other things.
Well, as promised, here is a view of my newly decorated sitting room. As my son rightly said - 'more you Mum than the way it was before.' It is certainly much more restful now that there is no patterned wallpaper to distract my eye.
Now to other things. Lunch today was delicious at our usual venue. Celeriac soup (fantastic, I shall certainly have a go at making this) followed by chicken, ham and leek individual pie with multi coloured carrots (most attractive on the plate ) and a tub of chips. Coffee to finish and all the time a wedding party was assembling (the venue is licensed for weddings). We had to leave before the bride arrived but we had a good view of the guests who came into the bar part of the restaurant for drinks. It was a chilly day but the guests (all seemed to be under thirty) were all in quite flimsy dresses (men, thank goodness in lounge suits and not ill-fitting hired morning dress) and absolutely
unbelievable hats - how fashionable they seem to be this season for weddings. As friend W and I remarked on our way out to the girls on reception, we would never wear clothes like this these days because we never went to weddings any more = it was more likely to be funerals.
My friend and neighbour H came round later in the afternoon to view my sitting room decorating and we had a cup of tea and discussed the fact that in the Chinese zodiac we are both monkeys. Do we have similar characteristics in our make up? I am just off to have a read up about it on the internet and will report back. Apparently we, as monkeys are light-hearted and tend to be pranksters - not sure that this is me - shall have to think about it.
