Yes, Ruth's birthday was on Thursday, Ruthie's was a week ago or so. I had to resort to thinking of Ruth (Exeter) and Ruthie (Cornwall) to remember who I would meet when. Having met them both now I remember who is who!

And if anyone is coming to Devon let me and/or Ruth  know so we can arrange a meeting and invite Ruthie!

The lovely Michelle and her hubby Dan were with us for just 24 hours - really not long enough! We visited the Caen Locks in Devizes in the morning, and after lunch we managed to complete a circuit of 6 of the 8 White Horses in Wiltshire - then home for dinner.

Dantastic, Brightspark, Michelle from Oregon - here we are!

After a leisurely 'full English' breakfast, off to see KateUK.

Spent half an hour or so with Kate, and Fred(!) and Rita the kitten(!), had some lovely muffins and coffee, then off.

Always difficult saying goodbye, but we had a lovely time!

XXXX to Michelle and Dan.

Safe journey home after all your outings.

Hi Honey, I'm home!  

Great picture Sparky I wouldn't have recognised you!  They've all gone again now but I had a wonderful time.  MOS did arrive, just as Danny and Fiona were leaving, so they came back again and Jean and Seth stayed on too.  Kate, Dan and Michelle missed him unfortunately.  Jean and Seth brought hundreds of food which was delicious, I'm not sure if anyone else brought anything...Amanda and her husband Paul arrived as they live near Newport Pagnell which is not far from here, I believe she comments on the blog but will, I think start to post here too.  I have some pictures but am too tired to put them up just now.  I had a fabby time with everyone, so glad that they made the journey!

I'll try that again!

I'm afraid I have to disappoint you - I managed to take all shots on the wrong setting and you can see no-one.  Dan took lots and I know he is a good photographer so I'm sure he'll be able to upload some from his camera.

I'll try that again!

Thanks Joanna, I was so disappointed.  I expect we'll have to wait until DanTastic gets back home.

I'll try that again!

Thank you all for the warm and lovely reception!

Take care,
