Talking of shy..
… we are off travelling tomorrow and while out and about taking in weddings and old friends, we will be stopping off at Darceysdad’s on Tuesday 29th for an afternoon/evening/night of chat and socialising – well, it all works out for me because my social skills are not that social – so I will have my children who are charming and the Ms. who has some skills in the conversational department and a lovely personality to hide behind. Hopefully, no one will notice me supping a brew and opening my gob to insert a foot.
When the man himself returns from his holidays I’m sure he will invite the RR greeting community – I am going to be internet free and out of contact with the wide world, so can’t organise anything – if we see you there it’s going to be great.
If not hope everyone enjoys tinny’s Thursday theme – and good luck with SHY.
This is my over extended list – it’s a subject I can relate too.

  1. Tis true enough. We have worn the girls out at Legoland on the last day of our hols today, and I’ll be back online from home base on Mon eve. More info to follow then …

    • … except that Tues is 27th & Thurs is 29th, and as there’s 200 miles, 3 pints of Speckled Hen and most of a bottle of Pinot Grigio between me and my home calendar, I can’t remember from here which is the right day/date!!! I’ll clear all that up tomorrow night.

      Cheers, * hic * and goodnight.

  2. According to my notes, the Sane travellers are due here on Tues 27th, leaving again early-ish on 28th.

    Our hosting/social plan now somewhat up in the air though, due to a family bereavement meaning there’ll be a funeral sometime next week that at least some of us will have to attend.

    Watch these pages, email inboxes and even mobile texts, folks. More as soon as I know it.

    • Sorry to hear about the bereavement. If you need another venue on the 27th people are welcome here, as long as it’s after midday as I have visitors ‘checking out’ in the morning. Don’t know if that’s any help.

      • No, we’ll still be OK, I think, but it is possible that I might be the only one in. The kids’ last remaining great-grandparent died in her nursing home a couple of months short of her 96th birthday, so it wasn’t a great surprise. Her cognitive function [re recognising family / remembering anything coherently] departed this existence some time ago, so there’s a little tension over exactly how many of us need to attend the funeral, Darcey being a prime example.

        Thanks anyway, Ali, and I’ll keep you informed as to mini-social arrangements.

  3. The Sage Francis nom is wonderful. Was it not zedded for the RR about a letter to our teenage self? A perfect fit with BBB’s “Facts of Life”.

    Have a great holiday.

  4. Hi there would you mind letting me know which
    web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely
    different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web
    hosting provider at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
