Flowers, Very Excellent Names, various things to eat, and a desire for World Peace.

A few days ago, I went out for A Ladies Lunch.

3 of us were Young Ladies. The other 2 were Not So Young. In fact, 1 was Frumpy, Grumpy and Old. Don't worry. I won't name names.

Some of the Ladies had bad manners and were late. You know who you are.

It was very hot work waiting for them. So I went for a swim. There are many little beaches around here where us dogs are allowed to play and swim.

This one's tiny and, to be honest, quite crappy.
My stay-at-home human got hungry, so she ate some lilly-pilly berries she found on a bush on the way back from the beach.
I don't know why she's allowed to eat things she finds, and I'm not.

Finally, the other Ladies arrived!

Here's Lady Tiggy. She's a bit shy.
And here's Lady Nu. She likes to wear flowers too. 
They both have Very Excellent Names like me.
Look what else we share?!
Isn't that nice?

For lunch, we had macaroons, meat pies and sausage rolls with extra tomato sauce. In case you want to know, the macaroons were - in alphabetical order - Banana, Basil Passionfruit, Cinnamon, Liquorice Raspberry and Pancake Maple Syrup. We like to eat healthy things. The Banana got mashed right away. They say I did it.
I haven't got pictures of the pies and sausage rolls because they got eaten too fast. I only got some pastry crumbs. A piece of sausage roll fell on the dirty ground. My stay-at-home human picked it up and ate it. She set a Very Bad Example for the Young Ladies there.

After my lovely and generous lunch of pastry crumbs and old doughnut scraps [from the bottom of Lady Tiggy's pram]
washed down with a cup of tap water, I was very full and had a nap.

Then, before we knew it, Ladies Lunch was over. It was time to kiss, hug and say goodbye.
On the way home, we saw this sad news.



Maybe one day, we can make some lilly-pilly jam! I like a bit of jam on my toast.

p.s. I don't know why there's a recipe for Chicken Cacciatore at the end of the information sheet.

We are sorry that we are always so very late. But Dawn Fraser Pool was lovely and we have not had any nasty tummy bugs from it so we'll probably go again.

We had a lovely day and thanks for the macaroons, squidged or not. so V.E.R.Y sweet.

I have never heard of Lilly-pilly berries before, but they sound delicious!

Georgia, your run down of events is, as always, utterly brilliant. I hope you get to play in a better beach next time.

Glad to hear you had such a nice day. If you take up dock diving, would you become Ladies who Launch?

@kristine -I like lilli-pillys. Lots of people grow them in the garden but don't eat them. What a WASTE!

@pamela - haha that's funneee...:)

Have a happy day, Ladies! xox
