First Matie arrives

Lorraine and I up cheerfully this morning, and off at lunchtime rain dodging into town to do a spot of shopping. To the Sussex Yeoman where we met Betty after two, and were soon joined by First Matie who had come down from London. Good to see Betty who seems incredibly busy, but pretty cheerful. She had to return to London, after consuming a Yeoman burger scooby snack.

Jolly good to see Katie, good to get her news and drag her home, where we inflicted Japanese photos on her and fed her a delicious Spanish pork and beans dish that Lorraine had cooked. Carefully avoiding horror films, we instead selected a movie called The Call, which was a horrific thriller instead, which had everyone squirming on the sofa and feeling wan and shaken.
