Well, the food
went well. I did mushroom quiches, green salads, oatmeal bread with honey butter and fudge cake with strawberry ice cream. I served sparkling cider with dinner and peach nectar when we got back from our walk.
Unfortunately, four of the five guests didn't turn up.
One did cancel two days in advance, one forgot and when we got hold of her she was two hours away, one cancelled while I was making the quiche at 11am (I didn't know till after I'd put them in the oven because I wasn't checking Facebook while I was cooking) and I have no idea what happened to the last person- never heard from him.
I am very grateful to the one who did come! R and I had a hilarious lunch and a walk later.
