A good start to the week talking to my very excited best friend who was about to set sail on a dream cruise for nearly 4 weeks, nails painted, dresses packed & all ready to go. This unfortunately turned into very sad news at the end of the week that she lost her Dad, a couple of days in & stuck at sea not being able to get off the ship. Our heart goes out to you Sarah & John, as well as your Mum & Andrew. Pete was a great guy, and we know you'll miss him so much. Funny how being away from home when people need you most just magnifies things and makes it difficult not being able to be there to give support. Take care coming home today & speak soon xxxx
Tuesday night Andy had his bowling league again, so I opted for a relaxing night in
Friday evening the boss dragged us (well, ok maybe not quite!!) to the pub after work for a much needed beer, we had aimed to go to the Australian chamber drinks early evening, but as always it didn’t work out so we popped home & went to the Internations party which was a great evening out on the terrace, and the weather was good to us for being outside.
Saturday we met a couple of friends & went for brunch nearby, for just under a tenner it was a full buffet, including juice / tea / coffee, breakfast stuff, pasta, salad, steak, oysters, pastries, cakes etc
The monthly bowling night next arranged by Andy & our friend Rodney. Food at Franks bar before the bowling, then I scored my record of 120 which I was very pleased with. One guy scored 208…… beat that!! A great turn out again of nearly 30 people, and drinks afterwards. We’ve got to know the owner of Franks (not actually called Frank!) and he’s been so happy that we’ve taken loads of people there, he sent over a bottle of Bailey’s to the table towards the end to say thank you, shared between about 8 of us that were left, very happy!!
Sunday we’d arranged to go to a brunch arranged by a contact of ours who is in the fine wine business, he was doing a dim sum brunch accompanied by Beaujolais, again for just under a tenner
A relax at home, then Andy went to Paddy’s to watch the football & the grand prix, I didn’t go as I was shattered & hate it when they switch the commentary to the footie half an hour into the grand prix, so out of protest I stayed at home & watched the updates on the BBC! Also had a good chat to Mum & Dad too & caught up on all the news. Lou hope you have a fab holiday in Greece, and Mum & Dad in Ireland too. Andy very happy at the footie scores this weekend, Liverpool 18th in the league (somewhere near Southampton ha ha ha!!!), Everton 3rd in the league and won 3-0 on Saturday. Happy days.
Anyway, best go – Andy’s on the wok & tea / dinner is nearly ready.
