Off to college reunion dinner on Thursday. Am seated next to visiting American Professor of Classics; discuss sexuality in the ancient world (briefly) and cooking (in great depth). Meet various people from my Past, most of whom seem to look exactly the same as they did thirty years ago; eat, drink and talk far too much.
Am not perhaps At My Sparkling Best for Cricket Club Quiz Night back home on Friday night, but hastily-assembled team manage a respectable score – helped by excellent performance on Mr Men round.
Saturday brings a 70th birthday party and perfect English afternoon of marquees, bunting, salmon and Eton Mess. Feel full of general bonhomie and may quite possibly have agreed to help out with some new initiative at village nursery.
Quiet day today.
