........but I cheated!
On Friday I prepared for our annual "Bookclub" dinner.
Last year after a dreadful meal, served V. badly at a local restaurant,
I suggested we all gather at my house next time!
This was a flippant comment I thought I could possibly regret later.
I didn't know back then I would have a stroke early this year and although I was lucky not to be totally wrecked it has taken all this time to feel really ok again.
Exhaustion still hits me occasionally and my ability to read and comprehend books
is not quite as good as it once was.
The Book Clubbers knew this and gave me the chance to renege but
I chose to change the rools instead.
So here it is....
A table set for delicious take-away Thai from our local restaurant,
(Not the one we mistakenly chose last year, tho'.)
Ten of us ate, drank and were merry.
The latest book was discussed amongst plenty of totally unrelated chatter.
Best wishes were shared for a wonderful Christmas,
enjoyment was had by all.
and nobody was disappointed I hadn't cooked.
