It's a bank holiday Monday but I am going to work today, hence being up at 6.00.
I will take next Monday instead as two good sets of friends are coming to see me then - 3 of the 4 adults are ex BS5ers and the fifth person is a little chap I have not met yet!
Now then - at church yesterday I secured a double date and am meeting two women of the congregation at work tomorrow where I said I would stand tea and cake for them both in our restaurant.
Much as I am looking forward to meeting Muriel and Jean, each of them is more than double my age plus a decade, and between them they have notched up one hundred and seventy years! They are keen on knitting patterns and plants so they are catching the bus together and coming for a look about. Muriel is surprisingly tall for a woman in her eighties but Jean is a touch under 5ft. They are both very sharp, a little slow on their pins and fantastically forthright in their opinions, which I suppose is entirely fine for all their years.
