I arrived in England on Thursday evening, very last minute. It's now Tuesday afternoon and Rosie and I have been kept very busy reminiscing with old friends. C has been lovely in giving us somewhere to stay, and driving us about, bless her. It's been great to catch up with her and my special friend T too. T's girls are adorable and growing up so fast. They all doted on little Rosie as she seemed so tiny to them.
I met my Dad for lunch yesterday, followed by a coffee with someone I haven't seen for 17 years! It was great to see her after so long and to catch up on each others lives. I'm meeting another girl I haven't seen since school on Friday as well. C and I visited our old (not in years) friend CR on Sunday. I think she quite liked little Rosie! We tried our best to get some photos of the four of us together but most of them turned out with one of us looking a bit dodgy. Hehe. She gave me a HIM watch, which really touched me. How kind. And thoughtful.
T took me out for a drink one evening and we sat for hours chatting about life, parenting issues, old school memories. We tried to take one photo where both of us looked ok, and it was easier said than done! In the end the only good photo of both myself and T had Rosie balling her eyes out in it!
I have lots more people to meet up with before Sunday and am looking forward to each and every one of them. Unfortunately I just can't fit everyone into one trip. Guess I will just have to come back more regularly! Rosie has been an absolute angel the entire trip and has spent the entire time smiling and giggling. What a little star.
Here are ome of the photos so far...
