We had a banquet at the local Chinese restaurant. To paint more of a picture, the place is full of Asians for whom this is their regular Friday night fare. We were seated in the middle and must have been entertainment to all these people - because we were there forever!!!! Three hours to be exact and my gorgeous little boys with their red hair glowing is a sea of dark heads sat like little angels. Admittedly they were sick but I had not drugged them! It was long for me, and they must have been so bored, but were so good that the staff were giving them lollies and kisses!!! Seriously! While it was a long time coming - the food was really lovely.
We finished up with coffee and cake at our place where we gave Mum her pressies. This time a top and skirt made from a really fine knit. It is a turquoise with black marle. We teamed it with a belt, and lace stockings and grey earrings. Mr P made an awesome squirrel brooch which is cast in tin. Looks fab but you can't really see it here. She is happy anyway.
