We were invited to a Pink Ribbon High Tea on Sunday, and I was requested to “please bring a plate, Nana”. Organised by grand-daughter Megan and her land-lady Jane, it was a very swish affair indeed. Megan met us at the door and ushered us inside.
Megan and Jane had been busy all morning, in the kitchen, and decorating the house with balloons and ribbons. The table was groaning with all sorts of delicacies, most with a hint of pink. Other guests arrived, dropping their contributions on the table, and we settled down with a hot drink. Then the hostesses brought out sausage rolls, and tiny quiches, hot from the oven, it was time to start on this wonderful spread.
There were about 20 people, friends and families of Megan and Jane. Dave entered into the spirit of the day, and after a morning doing he-man stuff like duck hunting with his trusty dog, was happy to slip a sparkly pink tutu over his hunting gear. And Jane looked a picture as she passed food around to the guests.

It was a lovely morning indeed. We all know someone who has been touched with breast cancer, and it was great to gather together in celebration of Pink Ribbon Day in May – this year is the 10th Anniversary of Pink Ribbon events.
