We ended up having a glorious inauguration of the new bridge to Twisby Island. I bought a cream cake (wasn’t time to make, we were in the uni most of the day). But it was a sponge with jam and real cream which is to say, a proper party cake. The actual bridgebuilders and ourselves ate most of it, and then we all moseyed down to the lake, where I had closed the bridge with pale blue ribbon. I got out my being a duchess hat (navy straw, wide brimmed) and trimmed it with white roses. Miss T was induced to wear it, and be a duchess for the occasion. She cut the ribbon good style, and chirped, ‘I declare this bridge open’, before storming across the thing accompanied by ecstatic labradors.

    Please convey my congratulations to Miss T (and the Hat)- tell her from me it sounds like she did a better job than the Queen herself, on the occasion of launching the ‘Milennium Spear of Light’ into its better known alter ego of the Wobbly Bridge…
