Impressively, the food at the wedding was quite good, and the portions were very substantial. It's a challenge to feed lots of people at once and do it with tasty food, but this event succeeded. I think the starter was a squash-and-red-pepper soup. I couldn't even finish the main course, it was so substantial. We had pineapple cake (with an option of plum pudding) for dessert, followed by the wedding cake, a stupendous work of art, with gorgeously handmade flowers, complete with marzipan calyxes, and leaves.
I bought three books, and read two works of fiction, including Diana Wynne Jones' latest, The Merlin Conspiracy. I enjoyed it, but the ending finished in such a flurry that, while there was nothing major left hanging, I wished it had finished less breathlessly. Baker's Boy was typical fantasy but rather disturbing. I'm not sure yet whether or not to read the next two books in the trilogy.
