Silver sandals-opshopped
Necklace-G bought it for me in Wellington
Headpiece-the fabulous Jem

So, Jo and Helen came over for dinner and a little bit of a jam.

Much wine was quaffed.

I admired Jo's amazing shiny handbag.

We ate a lot.
4 course!
French Onion Soup
Chicken Raviloi with Avocado sauce
Boef En Daube with new potatoes and steamed green beans
Tarte au Citron

We made some agreeable noises in the band room.

Jo's dress was her mothers in the 60's.
Divine chiffon.

I do like these sandals.
I don't like my slightly fuzzy head.
