Golden Wedding

It was our Golden Wedding on Saturday.  Luckily for us, four friends were staying in Chamonix with another couple so they came over and joined us and Carol and Gordon for a celebratory dinner.  The Clochettes was empty so we took it over, and Kieran cooked us the most amazing meal., with Ben and Ellie serving.     We started with scallops with a home made ham terrine, followed by a perfectly cooked rack of lamb and then, the piece de resistance, a dessert of lemon posset in a white chocolate half shell with meringue and fresh fruit. It was a great evening and our friends left for Geneva the next morning to catch their flight home.
Om the Sunday our two families arrived together with the Booth and Smith families so there are 8 children in all, ranging from 14 to 7.  It was Caroline and Steve's 18th wedding anniversary yesterday, and Lizzie will be 12 on Thursday.  It's a busy time of year!  We skied on Mont D'Arbois yesterday in glorious sunshine and had lunch at the Gouet.   Today we are probably going over to Cote 2000.
