Well I didn't count on receiving more presents! But I am so so happy with my 'Made In Japan' plates and bowls from the dear newlyweds!
I think they look quite fetching with toast!
My other unexpected present today was from my beautiful sister-in-law, who insisted on buying this beautiful wicker basket for me after seeing I had admired it!
I have an instant desire to go for a walk through pastures now in full Georgian dress, including Jane Austen style Grecian gown, bonnet, jacket and scarf! All the while collecting flowers and strawberries to put into my basket!

On Monday mornings I meet with a group of women for coffee. We are from varying walks of life, and ages... Some of us very noisy, all of us very funny. Lively debate and spirited conversation takes place while we sip, (and sometimes spill) our coffees in the excitement of it all! We have named this rendezvous Maybe Monday, and I smile all the rest of the day after our meeting.
There is nothing like nearly taking over a coffee shop with a large group of friends, and enjoying time catching up, swapping stories, and really serving each other with the delights of good company, just being friends, just being women.
