More Family Fun

Posted on Mon 26 February 2007 in general

I was down in London again this weekend to see Fliss. For bonus points it was also my Nana's 90th birthday on the Sunday. This gave Fliss a chance to meet most (if not all) of my Dad's side of the family. It was also nice to catch up with the cousins who I haven't seen for ages. The meal itself took around 4 or 5 hours although we hung around with Nana, Uncle George, Auntie Sue and my parents having a few more drinks. I think Fliss is now starting to appreciate just how long my family spends at the dinner table. There was a little wibble with sorting out how we were going to get home but in the end we just walked back to the station and caught the train leaving the others to the rather scarce taxis. I returned to Manchester on the Monday morning train which is proving to be a much nicer than Sunday evening. For starters you get a fast train and I get to spend more time with Fliss. I just need to remember to load up the laptop with enough work to have stuff to do on the train.
