Page 15 of 31: Tuesday 15th September

Fine again today and, with class finishing at 10, Pamela went across to the Internet point but it was unaccountably closed. After a wasted 45 minutes hovering, and a return at 11.45 to find it open at last (he was sorry, he’d had a problem) there was still no news about when Margaret would be arriving. When Peter returned after midday, we hurried to the market, mainly to stock up on fruit and something for tonight’s dessert. We didn’t need to shop for our dinner as Suzanna had offered to cook a meal which she said she would bring down to our apartment.

On the way back, we met Debbie and Roland at Etrusca for pizza and beer – after which it was time for Pamela’s group’s class again; a free afternoon for the others.

We’d been asked upstairs by Suzanna for “just a drink” before dinner but on reaching the top floor, we found the landing had been set up for a banquet. Tables had been dragged from the three bedsitters and placed end to end, decorated with caperberry leaves and candles in bottles and plates of antipasti. Ellie and Suzanna then joined forces and cooked pasta in each of their kitchens, and we finished with figs, cheese and pastries. Pamela Due and Maureen were also part of the surprise day-before-birthday dinner and we had a great night, singing, telling jokes and laughing till quite late – we hope no-one was trying to sleep.
