My friend Dorothy from Sweet Dreams (click on the link for additional Christmas pictures of the inn) emailed me sometime ago and asked if we were busy on Friday night.
She had double booked herself to serve a dinner and had a date with her hubby Richard to see a concert.
OH ..what to do ..
what to do?
We had a dinner party arranged ourselves but our guests were delightfully flexible to rebook.
It turns out. .
she had arranged a party for us.
We would have fun regardless. .
but oh so much more fun when she invited more friends to help.
Hilda. . .Ken and Linda and my beloved and I arrived in our serving duds. . .smiles on our faces. .
and a bit of energy for the task ahead.
It turns out. . .dinner was ready and we enjoyed a preconcert dinner sample with Richard and Dorothy before Terry chauffeured them to the concert.
That. . .is what friends do.
They know they can call on us in a pinch.. .
and I surely know from experience that they always ready to return the favour.
