All the friends come at once

We’ve had a raft of visitors to see over the last few weeks and there are more to come. Sadly our friends from Greasby, who had booked their flights could not come at the last minute. We were so looking forward to enjoying their company but I guess there will be other times when we can chew over the fat and break some bread together.

Chris (who I worked with at Anfield) and Linda have a holiday home at nearby Cabo Roig so we popped down to their house  whilst they were here and enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon followed by a lovely meal at the nearby Tai restaurant.

Since we have removed the wall of plants that separated us from our neighbours below, we’ve got to know Mick and Jane.  We treated them to a barbecue at our house by way of thanks for all the hard work they did helping us to clear the debris away. If only we’d known that the council were going to clear the land opposite their house, we could have dumped it there!

Then we got to meet up with Graham and Janet who were holidaying at Punta Prima.  We popped down to see them and enjoyed a spot of lunch by the beach and yesterday they came up to our house for a barbecue. The last time we saw Graham and Janet was in the the 80s when they were wearing Easter bonnets!

This Thursday our good friends Peter (he is the brother of Graham) and Glenys  are over and will be staying at Chris and Linda’s house at Cab Roig. I expect we will see quite a bit of them, Peter has already booked himself in for one of my special paellas and I know Glenys will want to try out that Tai restaurant we went to with Chris and Linda. 

So busy times for Pam and I but in such delightful company, the hours we have spent with our friends, old and new, have flown by.
