Next week it's my parents' ruby wedding anniversary, so they're having A Bit Of A Do. The question is, should I (and/or my sister) make some kind of speech? Our family doesn't go in for big gestures, speeches, being demonstrative, etc. I was thinking maybe just proposing a toast to them might be the thing to do? Feck, I hate that I am nearing 40 and still have no idea how to behave in public. Nor any idea what to wear (I am about to go and throw myself at the shops and hope something vaguely suitable sticks).
