Jenny had her baby – boy, Benjamen. David rung in afternoon + can’t come cos he’d already accepted a party invitation. Sob! Mish + Sue were practically breathing down my neck + commenting a little too loud. Louise can’t come nor John Keane, so 1 spare ticket. Then Audrey, we discovered, has found hers so we have 2 spares. Tried ringing Chris but he’s away for 2 weeks. Sob! Sue and Mish left me to my sorrows.
