Z is enthusiastic

I am still trying to find out who’s definitely coming to the blog party, without a lot of success.  I’m having to make assumptions – though I’m fairly sure some people don’t know how to get here.  I’d really not wanted to have to search back through comments and write to everyone individually, but it seems that may be on the cards.  Thanks to those who have replied, of course.  But if you need my address and directions how to get here and not end up down a cart track, do get in touch.

LT and I are at his place (both houses are our place, of course, but this is for clarity) for a few days and friends of his are coming for dinner tomorrow night.  I’ve taken on the starter and pudding, he’s cooking the main course.  We work very well together, or separately but in the same kitchen, which is gratifying.  We also have much the same taste in food, which is more or less that we like food.  Cooking, eating, shopping for, talking about, enthusing.

You know that thing where you’re asked to describe yourself in three words? I know of one occasion when a prospective headteacher was asked that and one of the chosen words was “lazy.” Er, no.  Didn’t get the job. Anyway, lazy as I might be (and I’ve finally come to the conclusion that maybe I’m not as lazy as I’ve always thought, just efficient in order to do what I like when the job is done), the first word I’d use for me is enthusiastic.  In or out, I’m rarely lacklustre.

    Checking that my email reached you, incidentally the relations in Suffolk with whom we stay for your party stayed here last night as they had number one court tickets at Wimbledon for today.

      Yes, sorry I haven\t replied, also very sorry you can’t come this time. You’ve never missed a party before, your absence will be felt!

    You’ve probably already thought of this, being the hostess with the mostess, but I wondered if it was worth mentioning that the Lattitude Festival is taking place only a dozen or so miles away from you this weekend, which might add to the traffic, particularly if anyone might be travelling up the day before. There were already signs out on the A14 on Saturday and the organisers appear to be trying to send some traffic up the A140 as well as the A12.

      I’m hoping that, by the Saturday, there won’t be a problem. I’m not sure which way Mike and Ann come – he’s having problems getting his new computer set up – but I think they’ll be the only ones affected, other than you. BTW, if you’re on the bike, the drive is fine but the new gravel beyond that is fairly deep!
