What a lovely day for a Diamond wedding anniversary party - I am sure that the Queen would have approved. In fact, it was probably just like one of her garden parties at Buckingham Palace, although I am not sure if she has a paddling pool on the lawn.
We all tried our best but there was way too much food to munch our way through. Unfortunately, Elaine's homemade Swiss roll never even made it out of the fridge.
A spare lasagne, three large garlic baguettes, two enormous trifles and about 50 pieces of cake are on the menu for tomorrow - and probably every day next week.
