Then last weekend was also busy. On Saturday morning I was up early to give the house a bit of a spruce up, as we had some of our girls and 2 partners coming for lunch. We try to get together when DH's DD1 comes down for the weekend from Wandoan. This time, because I'm temporarily back in the workforce, the girls all brought a contribution to the lunch...that worked very well!
On Sunday mid-morning, DH went off to golf (very muddy!) and I went to my monthly coffee morning with some old friends. It was lovely catching up and then I noticed a former neighbour sitting at a nearby table. I moved from that area nearly 12 years ago and only recently I wondered about this neighbour from the next street to where I had lived...I thought that she was probably dead I'm afraid. But no...there she was. I pointed her out to my friends and said that I wouldn't interrupt her and her young friend but then I noticed that the younger woman had got up and was talking to people at another table. So I went over and said (with a big smile on my face), 'Hello Edna, don't know if you remember me, but it's Maria who used to live in the street behind you'.
She looked blankly at me...and then recognition dawned. What she said then sure wiped the smile from my face! 'I would never have recognised you Maria! You used to be quite thin!'.... :-/ We chatted for 10 minutes or so and I found out that she was 89! Anyways I went back to my friends then and when I told them what she had said...they all laughed!
My sense of humour soon returned though and I had a good laugh later at the photo below which a friend sent me.
