Sunday 10 August 2008

Rotation around the parishes continued last week. We held the sung Holy Communion service at Wingrave. There were a lot of people there, probably more than the previous week at Wing.

The previous night, Mrs Bouquet (aka Bucket) held her Mediterranean Supper in the church at Wingrave, and a good time was had by all. The food was excellent. It was hard to work out how such a feast was produced from such a compact kitchen. The starter was melon wrapped in Parma ham (or maybe Serrano). I then selected chicken with Mediterranean vegetables. Then there was a choice of desserts, from which I managed to try at least three. Baklava is one of my favourites. Finally a good cheese board (including Manchego I think - that diagonal striped rind gives it away) and coffee with sweets.

How come some people win nothing in a raffle, where others with a strip of 5 end up being drawn three times, and graciously putting their tickets back to be drawn again? Are some people naturally lucky, I wonder?
