Family Party

I was at a family party last night- a party of three generations. The middle generation- who were all funny little kids when I married into the family- are grown up now. Nick has a husband and stepson, Jenny is in marketing and Matt is shortly off to Brunel with a doctorate under his belt.

You know the Large Hadron Collider at Geneva-  they're about to switch it on and have it replay the Big Bang? Well, Matt is going out to Cern when he's done his initial stint at Brunel. He's going to be a part of all that.

Provided, of course, that the Collider doesn't generate lots on mini black holes (as some fear it will)  which then proceed to eat the world from the inside- like weevils.

We only glimpsed him last night- blurring past the living room door on a brief visit to the kitchen. Sunday is the night he captains an international World of Warcraft team- than which nothing is more important.

It's a great little family. It accomodates eccentricity. I find I fit in.

The food's good too. Keith and Ruth are serious about food.  And Nick had brought along a fabulous orange cheescake with a ginger biscuit base.
