A tree for Laurie
Edmund and Claire invited us to stay at The Coach House for a celebration on Saturday: an olive tree was to be symbolically planted, to grow up alongside Laurie (born on 13th November last year).
So, his parents, brother, cousin Ida, aunt Agnes and uncle Leo, grandparents and great-aunt Sarah assembled, along with five good friends of Edmund and of Claire. We all drank champagne and Edmund made a nice speech. The sun shone, we ate too much and a happy time was had by all.
