The kind of ‘proper’ cooked Sunday dinner you have with guests. We made a simple and often-cooked menu, with little fuss. We invited Janet-from-music week, and Michal-her-husband, who live in Cumbria. We had planned to take them walking in Yorkshire, but, being Lancashire, it was raining. So we didn’t. We sat. We ate. We chatted. We played games with the children. We were mellow and relaxed. We don’t always remember to invite people round, but we should definitely do it more often.
