My little sis’ and her family popped over on Sunday afternoon, to wish Matt well for when he goes to the mainland. Chatting over tea and cakes in the kitchen, realising I’m not sure when we will next all be under the same roof again, I had an urge to capture what I could on video.
The lad will be fine, this I do know - he tells me he has already met up with some folk due to share the Halls of Residence with him, from Facebook, and they plan to meet up for a drink together on the night he arrives.
Eeee, the wonders of new technology, eh?
Playing back this clip, I never realised before how much we tend to all talk over each other!
Later, we harvested some apples and plums from the garden, which I foisted on Lainee to take home. With the bumper crop this year, I’m just about all baked out, and I so hate for it to go to waste.
I do love these informal get-togethers, we don’t seem to do it nearly enough. Just a sweet, relaxed afternoon, chilling and catching up together. At the end of this clip I am wiping tears of laughter from my eyes. Matt had caught Abby earlier measuring up his room to re-decorate, which naturally made him a tad suspicious – then when he heard me say we’ve around ten folk to house over the TT, and I’ll give his room over to our friends for the duration, he reminded me he’ll be home over that period, and does that mean he’ll be relegated to sleeping in the shed? I’d clean forgot he’d be about (out of sight, out of mind), and have already promised the said shed out to our bunch of bikers. That’s when Sam said, “There’s always the conservatory”, and we fell about laughing.
There's talk of Matt buying a padlock for his room before he leaves (grin)..
