Lunch with the womenfolk
I am singing for my supper (or lunch) today as guest speaker at the Tonbridge & Malling Ladies' Luncheon Club.
Amusingly, last year, after having recently addressed the Tunbridge Wells Luncheon Club, I mentioned this to the T&M Ladies' Chairman, Trish Robinson. "Really?", said Trish, eyes widening and with a sound of incredulity in her voice. Then adding, "who'd pay good money to listen to you."
A year later, here I am! I've clearly gone up in her estimation. Or as Jon said (always able to bring me down to earth with a bump) "because it's the busy election period she couldn't get anyone else and you were her last resort."
I suspect he is probably right!
