Out of the blue. What a lovely surprise.

TA and OH pulled up just before 5. I was in a meeting - on the phone - when my mobile rang. "It's TA. We're on Cheveley High St."

Fiona spent some time with them both and I popped down for the last 10 minutes after my meeting ended.

It was a real breath of fresh air!

Just wished it was next Mon after Mother's Day because would have tidied up for that big_laugh big_laugh

Thank you very much, Toni

Oh how absolutely lovely for you all, that must have been wonderful.  If anyone wants to make a surprise visit to me and husband, feel free! (Enough notice for me to make a cake would be nice....I don't worry about running round with the vacuum whistlebig_laugh).

Hope no one minds, but please don't pop in on us unexpectedly, unless it is actually at the door. Most of our visitors need picking up from the airport and it takes us around an hour and half to two hours to get there, so phoning from the airport is probably not a good idea big_laughbig_laughbig_laughbig_laughbig_laugh If you come to the door though, then you take us as we arecheers

Feel free, we have a spare room that is usable if you don't mind staying in a builders yard!

Well, now for some nitty gritty detail smug

TA looked absolutely gorgeous, very relaxed (more so than at our meet-up in MK) and looked regal in a very attractive light pink (I think - men are crap at this) knitted cardie. She swore that it was hand made and not M&S big_laugh 

OH is a really lovely bloke. Could have sat and chatted with him all evening. medicine

Would have asked him how he puts up with toffeeapple but time did not permit!

Unfortunately we had our hairdresser coming soon afterwards - today of all days. Never mind, it was a brilliant mini meet-up.

We love you, TA big_hug big_hug smooch

Aww, you guys!  embarassed

It was so lovely to see Fiona and Danny again.  Danny now has a full beard, it suits him very well too.  Fiona looks very well I am pleased to say, after all the health problems she has had.  Makes a good cup of tea too.  Danny's eyesight must be way off, my cardigan is light slate blue...

It really was a flying visit, we were on our way home from Thetford where a new (to us) car was purchased.

I have seen, with my own eyes, Andrew the Halogen cooker and the Morphy Richards steam cleaner!

Love you too!

I'll try that again!
