Last Night at the Proms

Saturday night . The weather was great as was the food and company. In fact we have not enjoyed ourselves as much for a long time.We were kindly invited to the Last Night of the Proms by Tom and Rachael.The setting was perfect and we will talk about it for a very long time. Lots of flag waving,clapping.cheering and even tears as the Spitfire took to the skies giving a nostalgic display. Some had even got dressed up in officers uniform. Molls at the side of them as they wobbled over the lawns of Castle Howard in their high heels and seamed stockings. We ate Butcher Geoff Thornton's best rare beef and tucked into a table groaning with goodies. Talk about drinking you under the table -the bottles were tucked under the table in big plastic buckets filled with ice. The finale was a grand firework display.
Rachael was so organised and had obviously gone to a lot of trouble to create a wonderful evening for us all.
