Allenna has gone, seen here waving from the Carcassonne bus... this will take her to Carcassonne station where she will take a train to Toulouse, where she will join the Paris train in a couchette for a decent rest; after which she has two hours to get her next train to Zurich.What can possibly go wrong?
Very sad to see her go; but fortunately New Kelly had invited me to dinner, where Jo and Roy and Laura were also being entertained. My heartache was eased.
New Kelly is a fabulous cook - fois gras, devilled kidneys, mango-and-creme like syllabub thang. She has upped the ante for us all. Not that this is a competition, of course.
I snapped this below in the mirror so you get the back of Laura's head and no sign of Roy, dunno why not. Perhaps he's a vampire.
Extremely good night. Wide ranging, informative and erudite conversation. Laura has moved in next door to Bobs house so is a neighbour and is a most welcome addition to our rag-bag hotch-potch riff-raff creative types.
Not that she falls into any of these catagories, of course:)
