I also saw my cousin there and that was all lovely despite my Mum having broken her ankle.
(This isn't her - I just thought it was funny - although not for the woman obviously. I hope she made a full recovery and that the cat continues to be well rested.)
I met Pooch back at my sister's on Thursday and we headed to London on Friday where I saw a friend for lunch and all my old work colleagues in the evening for a proper old school pub session. Saturday started well with Pooch bringing me breakfast in bed and a lunch with Nickerjac and her husband as well as the irre…
