My First Visitors
Well the day had come at last, Angie and Pattie were arriving in Timisoara at 1.30, we all piled in the mini bus to be there when they got here. We mustered as many of the family as we could to give them a good welcome, we picked Kenny and Johanna and Philip up from Timisoara on the way. In actual fact they were waiting outside for us , it was lovely to see them and there were lots of hugs and kisses. As we were about to drive away a lady strolled up , strange she was wearing sunglasses and a fur coat, oh my goodness!!! I couldn't believe it , it was my sister Betty they had kept the surprise for me for weeks, ( how did three women keep a secret for so long!!) So there were more hugs , kisses and tears ( of joy of course). We took them to the lovely square in Timisoara and for a coffee, then back to my apartment. The things they had brought for me were great, jars of potted beef, suet , HP sauce,Cheddar cheese , crumpets and lots of magazines oh!! what a feast I was going to have but best of all they brought themselves.
The first day, which was warm and sunny I took them to the market, the huge textile shop, Leonardo's ( our favorite shoe shop) and a walk up the main Boulevard. They couldn't believe how lovely the weather was and we all had a really nice day and finished up chatting and having a drink at the apartment. There is so much to tell I will have to do a blog every day for a week , so this is the end of this one on "The Visit"
