What a glorious time we had supporting Clayton Brewery in their semi annual 'beer festival'
Yes ok, Clayton Brewery currently exists in Sarah C's Basement, and her other half Johnny Clayton brews from home. But one day this will be a famous name and we adore supporting his efforts in brewing new and delightful concoctions! this particular event also featured some very talented musicians and a faaaaabulous time was had by all.
Our lovely Sarah C sang like an angel as always, and Big Green Uncle were equally wonderful (I've linked in their profile pages from Facebook here, go check them out!)
This evening Sarah and I attended Highgrove's annual Christmas champagne and canapés evening. firstly, the champers was the Highgrove cuvee champagne blanc, at a reasonable £29.95 a bottle. and the canapés were a delight too. Especially the quails eggs!
So I arrive to the "private reception" sign under an enormous Christmas wreath (Yes, it is only October) and immediately on entering I am bundled into a group photo and asked whether I am a WI member. Time to grab a drink, find Sarah and start browsing and planning the perfect Christmas. Sarah even met the royal wedding decoration arranger!
We also would like to acknowledge the entertainment provided by Debretts classic tome: The A to Z of Modern Manners that taught us such gems of wisdom on the minefield of manners that include:
Sneezing: One of the more acceptable of bodily functions, one or two sneezes are acceptable, but if you feel a sneezing fit coming on: quickly remove yourself from the situation.
