Very embarrassed! I forgot to show up at Anne's for lunch this afternoon. I was an hour late and had already eaten some lunch but I managed to nibble a few sandwiches, a cup of tea, and a slice of lemon cheesecake (which was delicious).
Anne had invited four other friends which made it doubly embarrassing as they all got there on time. However, we chatted for the next couple of hours so I didn't miss out on too much of the gossip. This is an annual event and she had arranged it some time ago (that's my excuse for forgetting), and it's tricky to find a day and time that suits everyone. Maybe I won't be invited next year!
