We were both ‘up with the lark’ - Ann dropped me at the station for 8.30 so I could get to St Pancras International in time for chairing the twice-yearly OCA Committee meeting (we chose the Parcel Yard at Kings Cross again because of its location, the quality of service - and the food and drink - perfect!!!). Well, at least the venue was perfect - the meeting should have been quite UNeventful, but instead, the Treasurer announced his retirement and the proposed new Honorary Secretary (because of his day job) decided not to stand! With the meeting finishing just before 4pm, I jumped on the 4.30 and Ann picked me up at Kettering.
Then, it was a quick change before popping next door for the main event of the day - Paul and Karen’s BBQ featuring Karen’s melt-in-the-mouth lamb! Ann prepared a delicious dessert (chocolate cake with prune and brandy sauce - yummy!!!!). John, Trish, Tom, Julie, Chris and Isla were there and we had a great time - we even managed to sit outside in the warm for a bit. it was a perfect end to an eventful day.
As normal, by 11pm, I was flagging, and so we staggered the short distance back to ours and crashed-out.
Thanks for cooking Karen - lovely grub!
