An interesting brain teaser for us today: where on earth did we stash the smart crockery/cutlery? Posh dinner parties went by the board years ago and after moving house, locating the smart stuff took a while. It was worth the effort (the crockery and silver are not dishwasher friendly either!) to add a touch of celebration to a cheerful family get together. We've had a wonderful day and Poppydog is now exhausted (extra) from all the attention (it'll be back to normal tomorrow I'm afraid).
Apologies for lack of comments but I'll catch up very soon!
