Bit of a downsizer weekend

We had a good weekend with a sort of mini-downsizer meet, Saturday Simon ,Zoe and the boys came to stay and in the evening Tay and Andy came around, a few drinks and a barbecue went down well as did Simon's bunnyburgers, Sunday we toddled down to meet Anders and Judith, it's the first time I have met them and hopefully not the last, it was especially nice as they had friends from England and some French neighbours who were great fun.

That sounds great fun, can we have another when I come out?

We are having a little one here this weekend, hope the weather holds Rolling Eyes or it might be at my house Laughing

It was great. Nice to meet Tay and Andy before they go back to the UK.

Thanks to Ray and Jan for your hospitality. Also thanks to Anders and Judith (although I could say that in person as they are staying with us at present).

Looking forward to the next Downsizer (France) meet-up, when you are over here Pricey. Do you think we can talk Ray & Jan into trecking down here?

Thank you for a splendid evening. Cool Excellent company, very tasty food (we both tried the renowned 'Bunny Burgers' - the first time that we had even eaten lagomorph). I'm sure that our dearly-departed pet rabbits won't forgive us easily... Rolling Eyes

So who's coming over on 30th Sept then?

It is a bit too cold to be camping (IMO) but we have a couple of sofa beds and plenty of floor space. We could call it a rehearsal for next year's DS meet-up en France I guess.
Anders

Would like to come over, but I'm working at the moment. What a shame.

Have fun.

See ya,

Anders

PS Still got that book of yours Simon, - we'll bring it back, promise.
Blue Sky

No worries.

Books are for passing on, not bringing back.

Stories shared are stories multiplied, yes?
