Mary48
Leen, there ye go..ah'm aw misty eyed now!

I have looked for the old WA meet thread but Martin must be keeping the board fairly well trimmed cos it's not here noo...so, here goes:)

Leen had given me directions to her house and, as I wasn't meeting Mary from Melbourne (also a member here) till 1.55pm, I took off early this morning for the 4 hour drive to Perth arriving at Leen's just after 10am. Drove past her road-end but only a few yards so.....easy to get to:)
When I got there she was at her front door....good timing or what?
Into the house, on with the kettle, non-stop talk ..then out with the coffee to sit by the pool and relax. When Anne and Iain arrived we had a quick word with Iain before he took off like a scared rabbit at the thought of being with us 3 women! (still wondeing why?? LOL)
Somehow, it was lunchtime before we knew it and Leen went in and set us up a lovely quiche and salad lunch followed by fresh fruit, with cream and a piece of a beautiful sponge...didnae get the name of it. By that time it was less than half an hour till the plane got in so we took off down to the airport leaving Anne at Leen's waiting for Iain to pick her up.
I'd told Leen before we left that I'd drop her back but that we werenae going to come in on the way back! HUH!!
When we got back Leen's daughter was there. She made us all a cuppa while we went back out and put our feet out...we were good though and didnae stay long, being back on the road just after 3pm.

Anne, it was a pleasure meeting you, sorry for diving off the way we did but we only just made the official time for the plane ..it ended up being a few minutes late


Leen, thank-you so much for your hospitality, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and Andrea and look forward to seeing a lot more of you both in the future:)

Anne..we never did get those photos taken!! LOL
Mary48
ROFL........jist read Catherine's msg..ah forgot aboot the glass of wine we had wae lunch...nice it wis too:)
Marg
Great Mary I had a first hand account from Leen this morning and she was so Pleased , she had a lovely visit and felt so good having meet you .It just surprises me the warmth of so many here on the GG site.
Fearn
Leeninaus: Don't you worry about the Glasgow twang - I never knew much of it and after all my years in Canada had about forgotten all of it - I'm half Sassanach - figure I've got the best of both worlds though.

It's amazing what's come back to me since I logged on here about 10 months ago - I was mortified at the 'crash'. Great bunch of folks here!

Now a question - How many on this Board remember when Christmas (apart from in Church) was not generally celebrated in Scotland and in England, Hogmanay was considered a pagan Scottish ritual?

unsure.gif ooooooh! off topic, I guess...... a wee giggle here!
anne
Leeinus and Mary 48, thanks for Wednesday and all the gabbing we did, it was lovely meeting you both. Lunch was nice and so was the glass of wine we had. Mary I know you 2 just had to run away so I would do the dishes lol, I done them by hand as well !!! Leen I got your phone call at night, thanks for that, Mary hope your party goes well on Saturday, behave yourself, not. Hope we meet again.
