Week Beginning October 10th - Buckingham Palace

About a month ago, I received in the post a very nice envelope with my name and address written in fountain pen on the front with a big red stamp ER at the top. I opened it very carefully, to find inside an invitation to Buckingham palace for a cocktail party!

Her Majesty the Queen has instructed the Master of the Household to invite Mr Peter Dore-Smith to a party in the palace before she travels to Australia on a business trip. This is not one of the garden parties, this is inside the Palace!

So this Thursday the 13th, I will be off to the Palace for an party with the Queen and apparently about 300 other guests. She does these sorts of parties when she goes off to other countries and invites members of that country to the palace for a leaving do.

To think that the Queen has somehow heard about Kaffeine is a truly wonderful and humbling thought. To know that the extremely hard work of all the staff who currently work and who have worked here, and that the support of all our fabulous customers is being recognised is even better.

Obviously, I cant wait, its going to be an exciting week...I wish I could take you all with me.
