Sarah had lined up a treat for us on Sunday and she and Duncan took us to Rufflets Country House hotel just outside St Andrews for a lovely champagne afternoon tea.
It was great for us both to catch up with granddaughters Rose and Melody.
I am not sure that, with pastel sofas, chocolate rice krispie cakes were the hotel's wisest choice for the children's afternoon tea menu but ,after a precarious few minutes, the upholstery escaped unscathed.
The weather cleared up enough for the girls to spend a few minutes in the hotel's lovely gardens.
It was good to see how little Melody is growing up. When we were between houses we spent six months living in the caravan in St Andrews so got to know Rose very well, we've spent a lot of time babysitting our second granddaughter Catherine in Rochester but we haven't seen as much of Melody. Hopefully this couple of weeks will start to redress that balance and she and we will get to know each other much better. She's a very happy little girl with a great sense of fun.
It's been very cold and windy at the caravan. My mum is going to join us here for Easter and it will be nice if the weather picks up and she can enjoy St Andrews in some sunshine.
