So when she said that she was coming to the UK and could she come to stay for a few days we dusted off the spare room, made up the bed and Tabitha, Gareth and Cally arranged to come and pitch a tent on the lawn so that they could play too. Freyja isn't back from California yet so couldn't come to play, and Austin, of course, is in Japan. Skype, however, is a wonderful thing :-D
We've had lunch at The Nettle (who accommodated all of our various requirements with grace and good humour). We had a Proper Sunday Breakfast, and a Proper Sunday Lunch. It was showery yesterday but nothing that inconvenienced us! Tabitha, Gareth and Cally have gone home now, but I've got this week off work so we are planning to head to Chatsworth to inspect the farm shop and to have a spot of lunch. Tomorrow she moseys on down to Cambridge and goes home to Ballarat at the weekend.
It's been lovely to see her. I think she should come again!
She claims that it's her 80th birthday this coming December, but I really don't think that that can be right!!
