You are SO SWEET to put this party together. What a wonderful idea. Unfortunately, I’ve been feeling rather under the weather, and I don’t think I’ll be recovered by Friday. Give my sister a kiss for me and I’ll hope to visit soon!
I’m sure you’ll just have the most wonderful time!
We’ll be sorry to miss you (Sabina especially, I’m sure), but I completely understand. I hope you feel better soon and, yes, do come down for a visit. Helga’s Hill is surprisingly peaceful.
