There is now one item remaining.
My sister Rebecca and her fiance Ellis Smith officially celebrated their engagement on 2 June with a big party held on Ellis’s farm near Port Julia. They have been engaged since September 2006.
Everyone had lots of fun.
I could not possibly have asked for a better reaction to the gifts I bought for them, namely Tim the Enchanter’s hat and the Cow Catapult from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I asked Ellis to close his eyes while I put the hat on his head, and then to go and find Rebecca. The reaction was classic. The hat really suits Ellis, who has grown a jungle of facial hair, but unfortunately I didn’t get a photograph.
