Friends on holiday near us have left an answer phone message asking us round for supper this evening at their holiday cottage. They left directions and said they were cooking chicken.
Don't have their mobile number to find out what time they mean.
Can I ask what time you would turn up for an adults only supper invite?

Stuart Maconie in one of his books says that when he first lived in London, his agent invited him round for 'supper' -- he couldn't understand why she wanted him to be sitting on her sofa in his dressing gown drinking cocoa and eating digestive biscuits at 10pm.

To me supper these days means two courses and dinner means three.
Growing up however, dinner was in the middle of the day, tea at 6-6.30 ish and supper a bowl of cereal with a cup of hot choc in your dressing gown, eaten sitting in front of the coal fire waiting for your hair to dry .
