We drank Pimms by the jug, of course.
MissM is the family Pimms mixologist.
Meanwhile, MasterM was chef for the day
and everything was perfectly marinaded and cooked.
MrM stood by to learn advanced skills.
MrsM did the salads and remembered too late
that she had eaten the emergency peanuts
so had to improvise with pumpkin seeds.
The strawberries were left to warm in the sun
while we cooked marshmallows
on the last of the coals.
It is so rare and precious that we are all together
and it was perfect.
All of it.
