Elizabeth Chadwick Left to right: Barbara Erskine, Helen Hollick and me at the Sourcebooks author dinner last night at the Reform Club in London. We had a lovely time. Helen came back to the station with me and we went for a coffee before our trains and more gossip! Got home at 2am. 

I would loved to have been at that table!!

Lol, Deb I was just thinking the same thing. All those glasses, and it's not just water they're drinking devil

And look at the size of those butter pats!

We all seem to be terribly beverage and food focused on not on the authors themselves crying

It looks to me like we should plan on crashing their next party. If those people can crash at the White House, surely we could crash this place. ;-)

I'm not positive it' a scone - it appears to be triangle shaped rather than round.  Perhaps a popover?

E.C. did answer my question on FB about the alleged scone - it's not, it's bread.  But now I have a taste for scones - I think a trip to the British import store is in order!

LOL!  I guess scones aren't typical supper fare are they?

No, scones are more for "Tea".  But I am perfectly willing to eat them at or between any meal, when I can get good ones.
