There was a time, not to many years ago, when it was considered a great way to spend a Saturday evening. Yep, invitations went out to friends and neighbours to join us (or them) for small get togethers. Thought would be given to the menu and wine selected. The table would be dressed (well maybe not quite as grand as the one above) and hosts and guest would dress up for the occasion. It was informal but smart and conversation flowed.
Mind you in those days, it was also considered normal for the family to eat together at the dinning table.
Life has changed. Listening to conversations, the habit of dressing down, lap top meals with the TV watching the feast, Beer out of the bottle or can, never a glass, Prosecco the only wine and Take-Aways the real treat.
I guess that’s progress.. and I know I am getting old
Just a thought…. and here is another
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
