Saturday: category-defying commitment-phobic weather kept guests on their toes at the early afternoon birthday barbecue for K&S’s one year old son. Sunshine then cloud cover then shower. Another flash of sun then torrential rain. Mediterranean warmth then a goose-pimpling gust of wind. All within five minutes or so.
An easy cruise due east by rented Vauxhall Zafira. From M4 to South Circular. From Kew to Dulwich via Putney, Clapham Common, Streatham.
Dinner with M&K. The children formed a pack and kindly removed themselves from earshot for most of the evening. Last one standing was Didi, contented in the corner of the living room with toy cars and buses until 1am while the bigs talked and drank at the table.
