After a lazy brunch in Moseley, headed back to the metropolis by train. After a brief nip home to leave our bags, we headed back out again to Waterloo, to see Andrew M. Having fallen in love, he had managed to arrange a 6 month secondment in NYC, where the apple of his eye lives, and so was having drinks to say goodbyes before heading off. Life is stranger than fiction.
And then on to see Christine and Richard, distant family from Eugene, Oregon. Was great to talk family trees, babies, US politics, all in the yummy setting of Carluccios restaurant. They very kindly gave us a couple of baby related gifts, and above all it was lovely to catch up. I hope Robin will also be able to join us next year, as I know he and Richard would have so much to talk about.
