Dame M called last night to summon us to the Balaclava Hotel to celebrate one of the gang's birthday. Some of us were busy, but we went. It was a pleasant night, but Dame M has continuing problems after and eye operation.
So, she did not come and her boarder passed on her apologies. As said, it was a good night, but it did lack something. Dame M was not there and in a way she is a glue that sticks us all together.
