Mairi and two of her friends and I had a night out at a 'James Bond' dinner with my Wine and Dine group.
The last time (come to think of it, the only time...) I had a martini it was with John Hembling in a nightclub in Vancouver about 1964. He was so-o-o sophisticated; I, definitely, was not!
After school cake baking time: two cakes from Marks & Spencer's chocolate cake mix (which are better than my efforts) meant that there was no squabbling.
We have this ritual "Cooks get to taste the baking" but sometimes things get a little out of hand... like "I just need to taste it to see if it's gone off!"

Here is an up-to-date profile of Mairi's gang:
Alastair, aged 6, who can now 'go the monkey bars'.
Ishie, aged 7, who is long, lanky, a whizz with numbers and loves being a Big Sister.
And who gets lots of cuddles?
Harriet, aged nearly 10 months with Alastair and John.
The perfect play place for pulling herself up!
