Nicki visits

cheeseNicki drove up to spend the day with us.

It was good to see her and a great surprise to get a brilliant selection of individual cheeses (including my fave, chilli-cheese) as a birthday pressy. Yum-yum!

First stop for the girls, the beauticians (not that they needed it) for a bit of pampering. Whilst they were gone, I worked on some maintenance tasks on the OCA website - at last, I finally got its menu bar sorted out!!

The girls got back around 12 and we ate-in for lunch. Ann, with Nicki's help, created a rather splendid pizza with ham, chicken, goat's cheese, onions and tomatoes. We were too stuffed for dessert (but we had it later) - fruit and crushed meringue – yum-yum - again!!

After lunch, we caught up with the newspapers and took Nicki through the Japan holiday photos. She left about 4 because she wanted to get to Bicester Shopping Village before they closed. We put our feet-up, then spent the rest of the evening watching TV – BBC's Merlin and then Strictly Come Dancing.

It's been a great day, catching up up with Nicki and all her news! – and thanks for all the cheese!
