The dining-table in the Small Dining-Room is set for dinner this evening.
My guest is Godmother. It must be six months since we both attached nose-bags.
On the menu at Belmont GHQ tonight is Beef Wellington, with spinach and potato gratin and a medley of vegetables.
Pudding will consist of orange and passion-fruit tartlets with thick Jersey cream.
I thought we might watch a film afterwards, though they last about two hours.
I wonder if Godmother has seen Remains Of The Day; or A Handful Of Dust; or even Gosford Park.
I'd dearly wish to acquire The Day Of The Jackal for my iPad.
