Long anticipated (& slightly feared because I can’t cook) big family tapas themed luncheon today at The Moss.
Bman saved the day with some garlic mushrooms. My sister did a lovely rustic tart thingy and my bro raised the bar (literally) with gin soaked smoked salmon. Lots of bread and cheeses and meats for the carnivores.
Bman and I proved we can actually work well together by holding our own in a badminton doubles game against my bro & his lady (who is 20 years younger than me). Not bad considering it all went a bit festival crazytime with court invasions by Childerbeast on space hoppers and others with water pistols!
We then, randomly, used monopoly money in an auction for some junk, heirlooms & oddments that my folks had found in the loft.
I now possess a set of Coronation Street character ‘Toby jug’ style mugs from 1986. A box brownie and some pottery candlesticks that may be worthless or priceless…it’s difficult to tell.
I missed out on the almost full box of Lady Di & Prince Charles souvenir wedding pens. My brother has those. I guess I know what we’re all getting for Christmas from him this year.
