He did look a little embarressed as he told the taleand I hope that he appreciates what a good hostess I am as I tried very hard to look the other way and not STARE!!!!
Luckily he has a good sense of humour, as besides from Mick he was surrounded by women! and had to be the butt of such girly humour as "Is it true what they say about a man and the size of his .....camera?"
We all had a chance for some private chats as we smokers went into the garden for "fag" breaks and later on, after lunch (which included some wine!) Talj came out into the garden too. Even our frogs in the pond came out to pose!
All too soon it was time for them to go home....boo hoo.......and after copious hugs and a tear in our eyes Talj got into the carAndi had to do one more "SPOT" check ......(boys and their toys!!!)....before they left
I have only 3 complaints........
- The visit wasn't long enough..........still so much to talk and laugh about!
- They don't eat enough..........I really need to build their appetites up.......full English breakfasts and roast dinners next time!
- That Mick wasn't in a position to truly appreciate the visit......how he would have enjoyed chatting to them both and having some "mantalk" with Andi!
I really can't wait to see them both again......I've never known two people who could so suddenly and so easily become part of our family unit. They are two amazing people and the special bond between them is obvious. I don't know quite how to explain it......I think that if I had an older brother their relationship is just how I'd want our relationship to be. Full of respect and love and good humour.
P.S. The adoption papers are in the post!!!!!!
P.P.S. Anyone want to buy some dust masks....they didn't appear to need them!
