We have been invited by the British Ambassador to Cambodia to a reception next Monday. Aside from the time Prince Charles sent me a text this may well be the most distinguished company we have kept.
The invite came as such a surprise - the fact that I had noticed the reception being advertised and contacted the embassy asking for an invite is irrelevant. I'm sure they were just processing my invite when my email arrived.
We'll report back after the event to let you know all about the cocktail sausages, vol-au-vents and of course the Ferrero Roche.
