A couple of years back, we discovered some cousins (on Ann’s side) we didn’t know we had – Chris and Alison! ?
Between then and now, we’ve got to know them quite well – and this weekend, Chris and his partner Kate came to stay for a long weekend. ??
A very relaxed day began with a light lunch, followed by a walk around Wicksteed Park. Then it was off for our ‘curry blowout’ at our fave Indian restaurant – Exotic Dining in town.
And then back to ours for ice cream, a very large G&T in preparation for…
…a late night DVD! ? – a perfect choice with its sequel No Time to Die, just released!
A very lazy start to the day! We didn’t rise until after 9 (I think that’s a record!)
The weather was the horrid sort (rain, rain and more rain!) but we managed to squeeze in a local walk.
Ann and Kate began to prepare the feast for tonight.
Then it was movie time again…
…which we didn’t quite get time to see all the way through – with about an hour left!
Jo and Janet arrived just after 6.30, joining the four of us for a Roast Chicken dinner…
A great evening followed! Lots of laughs, wine… and of course, Chicken!
But by 11pm, we called it a night! ?
Another relaxed start to the day (with a ‘Full English’ for energy) followed then by an extended chat about previous generations of the family.
Our newly discovered cousins said their goodbyes just after midday.
What a fab weekend. I think we felt we’d known Chris and Kate all our lives! ??
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
