you may remember that when robert and i got married, we didn’t tell anyone and then had a long honeymoon in cartagena and sent back postcards – even our parents didn’t know, so when it came to 10 years we decided to celebrate with the party that we didn’t have; and then 20 years has come round and so we repeated the whole thing again in our house in vejer. thank goodness for annie who arranged an amazing party in my house last week – everything from a man with a whole jamon pata negra and traditional sherry from a barrel, to amazing canapés and flamenco guitarists. everybody commented on how her food was the best that they have tasted in spain! annie made the whole evening an effortless success – i didn’t even have to clean up afterwards, which was a bonus – so thank you again annie for a brilliant party. if you can’t have a party, you can still go and learn about food and cooking with annie – i highly recommend it!
here is a picture of my ceil chapman dress that i bought in william’s vintage recently – i know that some of you wanted to see it – you can’t really see the beautiful handwork of the bodice, but it is boned and ruched across the bodice with layers of silk chiffon – i was lucky that it fitted so perfectly. excuse the red espadrilles, but you really can’t wear heels in our town or house, too many cobbles and steps.
