dinner party

Well the other night we broke our record for entertaining the most people in our Italian home. Our English neighbours J and C who own the place down the road from us were coming over to have a couple of weeks here. J still works in the UK and the home here is something to look forward to when they fully retire. We thought it might be a nice idea to invite them for dinner as after a long drive down we figured they’d appreciate not having to prepare a meal etc. In addition we invited our other English neighbour P and her two house-guests James and Mary Lou, who are over from America, and P’s friend Debbie who had arrived the night before. With the 3 of us that was 9 for dinner. Good job we have a large dining table.

Dinner was a lazy affair – C had prepped it earlier in the day – a great tagliatelli and pasta sauce. And we had some mixed roasted veg and olives and lashings of garlic bread prepared by Mary Lou as pre-dinner nibbles. ML also prepared us some salads with a tangy dressing – the tops. Plus we did a bit of wine. In fact loads of it. P and Debs headed back around midnight I think and the other guys were with us until 2am-ish. How James and Mary Lou found their way back across the fields I’ll never know. And J and C must have slept right through yesterday.

We did nothing all day apart from a bit of computer work. I switched on to find my retainer with my oldest client was not being continued – a little shocking. But had positive news from two other sources later. Hey ho. Closing/opening doors and all that. The life of a consultant is never consistent. Today I need to get out on t’internet and pick up some more business. Onwards and upwards amici!
