Mel and Johnny – Here for the Weekend

Mel and Johnny joined us today for the weekend. We haven’t seen them since we were down in Portsmouth in July last year. Before that, it was April 2007 when they stayed with us last.

Johnny had had a ‘store visit’ so they didn’t get to us until around 7.15pm (the original plan was for them to get here much earlier, but they’d had the ‘journey from Hell’ on the way up – Johnny mentioned that his car had averaged just under 30mph for the whole trip.

We helped them unload their stuff, had a quick chat and then dived into Fish and Chips (thanks Val!!!) and then cheese as well as a brulé – all very nice.

We collapsed in the lounge and picked-up the conversation from before dinner – suddenly it was almost 11pm and we then realised how tired we all were.

A lazy day is planned for tomorrow and depending on the weather, we might venture out to somewhere like Kirby Hall and take a picnic.
