The weekend away

So we've been to Derby this weekend for the in-laws' diamond wedding anniversary Sunday lunch party. And a good time was had by all. On Saturday evening we went to Husband's extra-rich sister's show-house home for a meal, which was very nice. George came with us and he was so well-behaved!

The only trouble is that not only are sisters-in-law smarter than me, they both work and earn lots of money. So what with the teasing because I'm an idle kept woman, and coming back to a home with cobwebs and a half-painted hall, I am an even bigger mass of complexes than before.
But don't worry; it'll pass soon. Meanwhile here's me - minus shoes - with Elder Son (left as you look at the photo) and Younger Son. (I did wear shoes but they hurt so much I left them off for as long as I could.) Daughter couldn't attend because Son-in-law was on call. It was a shame but couldn't be avoided: you never know when people are going to crash in their car and need a new bit of face made.


Oh, yes, I nearly forgot. When Husband saw me dressed up for the lunch party he said, 'Moo.' How to make a girl feel good! I've suggested he take up counselling as a career.

You are gorgeous! Husband's should never be allowed to give comments about appearance! Mine once told me (thinking he was giving high compliment) that I (insert big sigh with eyes rolling!) looked very motherly!!! I know better than to ask now. ;-)

Glad you had a good time--don't let their material success bother you--you are a writer, and everyone knows that writers are never paid what they are worth!

You look great in that dress with or without shoes.

Do not worry about your sisiter-in-laws they probably envy you.

They don't come much better looking than you and your two 'boys'! What a lovely photo, Liz.

Rose said...

I'm sure your sisters-in-law are jealous of you, because you are looking good!
Of course, I'm still salivating over those blueberry muffins...
