Just popped by for half an hour and had a very good time, having had one of those days (yes one of THOSE), so that was most welcome. (I'm that woman semi slumped in a chair holding a half of lemonade!)
Met someone who had been in Lourdes last week with the Pope. (Never sure whether people want their names etc broadcast on the interweb, but very happy to meet you and hear all about it. )Pretty amazing by all accounts. Had to leave all too soon.
To capture the atmosphere a bit. Walked through the door and someone I had never met before, jumped up to offer me his seat and someone I had met before kindly bought me a drink. Everyone very friendly.
Miserable commenters on FrZs blog; you have it all wrong. Pity you didn't come and join the party.
Thanks to FrZ for organising the 'do.' My only regret, that I couldn't stay.
