I have been reprimanded for not blogging enough, (sorry!) so here’s what I did last night. Our neighbour Xina moved in to her boat last year, having bought it from our previous neighbours, Chris and Simone. The boat used to be called Light Enough to Travel. Now it’s named Bümba. With the summer months and longer evenings approaching, Xina kept a watchful eye on the weather forecast and when a sunny evening was promised on Wednesday night, rallied friends to join her, bringing her dining table out on to Midsummer Common for an al fresco feast. We provided chairs and an oil lamp from Willow. It was a little cold by the time dusk fell, and so we all wrapped up in blankets, including Louis the dog, but it was a magical evening, a little surreal to be having a dinner party round a table out on the Common, and we plan to repeat it throughout the summer!
