We had a great time with Ruth in Exeter! Just checking in quickly, then off to cook the next meal.

Michelle says TA shouldn't be nervous, she's the one who is nervous!

No need to be - I don't bite and I'm only a little over 5ft tall.

I'll try that again!

Why did Google Calendar not remind me about Ruth's Birthday?  aargh  So sorry Ruth, but it seems that you've had a good time so far anyway.

I'll try that again!

Yes, Many Happy Returns, Ruth - glad you had a happy day.

Michelle and Dan were safely abandonned at the station this morning in good time for their train. The train was at 8.06 so an early start. We had a wonderful time, despite the very frustrating lack of wifi at P's house. His router and connection have both gone, and despite Dan's best endeavours they need replacing and sorting, respectively. So I didn't have Val's number available to phone and say they were on their way.

We had a terrific time, and crammed in so much despite the intention to have a quietish time here. I have all their photos on my computer, so I can see some of the earlier part of the trip.

I'm sure the Saturday gathering will be fun, wish I could be there!

The next plot is for a get together in Devon, so Ruth and Ruthie can meet and anyone else within range can come. Nothing definite yet, but it will eventually happen. And maybe I can see Ruthie on one of our trips to Cornwall. And see Michelle and Dan again in Oregon, unless they get here again first.

I'll try that again!
