We have had a lovely couple of days. Yesterday we met Rick and Graham's cousins, Elizabeth and Barbara for lunch.They used to play a fair amount together in their youth and being cousins no doubt visited each other homes All of them lived in the same area as well. It has been an awfully long time since everyone had seen one and other so there was lots to talk about. Carol has been busy the last few days trying to figure out the Barnett family tree and knows an awful lot about the family and was very keen to find out more. Most of the conversation went along the path of " Do you remember so and so , or what ever happened to so and so", and all the places they hung out when they were young. Every so often a " oh he or she has died" slipped into the conversation, but you have to expect that when you are getting older yourself. I could not contribute to the conversation but it was very interesting to listen to it all. It gives you a good picture of Rick and Graham's childhood days. Lunch was very nice, good food and good service. All to soon it was time to say goodbye once again, always a little sad but no doubt we will meet up again.
Today we had lunch with Sally and Phil, Rick and Graham's sister and brother in law. We spend a few days with Sally and Phil in Azille France earlier this year. They have just returned from their stay in France . Carol cooked a fantastic lunch for us all, which we thoroughly enjoyed and managed to eat most of it. Lovely meal Carol and thank you so much. We all had a very pleasant afternoon together with many a laugh had by all. Once again goodbyes had to be said with the promise that we would see each other again. Hope so anyway.
So now all is calm again. The dishes have been washed, Carol has escaped to yoga and we are sitting here full tummies and contented.
The weather was simply awful yesterday, rain,wind and cold. A little better today but still pretty cold. Packing for our departure day after tomorrow ( where has the time gone) Tomorrow evening we are going to the Emirates Stadium to watch Arsenal thrash Coventry City. A night game but we will rug up. Guess what, we get to go and eat at the greasy spoon again. Will make the most of it and have a real healthy food fix  that will have to last us for a long while. Bring it on
