We had the pleasure of congregating with Great Grandma Dot, who as usual insisted on paying, for an excellent carvery meal with various family members. The Hollybush at Seighford, a fine establishment that was taken over by the community to avoid closure, did the honours as usual. Note that Dot has a full plate this time, having been sent last to fill her plate.
Whilst some went home after the meal, four of us adjourned to Eccleshall for a game of cards. But not before we had pushed Dot around the village and bumped into old friends Roger and Wendy, and Ray and Pat. We always bump into someone she knows when we do this. It’s a great shame that she can’t get out of her own accord any more.
Meanwhile, certain other family members were unable to attend the carvery lunch due to ‘Tapathon 2018’ – two hours of tap dancing in aid of some worthy charities. Well done, everyone.
And thanks again to Dot for buying us all lunch. It’s much appreciated and we will see you again soon.
