My old 'Pops'











Well we had a lovely afternoon with my stepfather (Paul). It was so nice to see him and we picked up where we left off 7 years ago. He's looking good and is happy and successful, what more could you ask?

Jasmine loved seeing him and cried when he was about to go, wh
ich surprised us all, (especially her) but she felt very emotional and we agreed that a few hours with him was much nicer than the visits we get from her 'birth grandfather'. Sad isn't it?

Alfie was spectacularly badly behaved as only he can be! I had given him a pep talk before Paul arrived saying that he hadn't met him before so it was important to me that he behaved nicely, and he can when he wants, so that Paul will get a good impression. But he was a prize twit, showing off, shouting etc, ho hum! I don't think Paul minded, he thought what a handsome and bright boy he was. See I told you he was nice!

Yes, Dons, it was great to see him, wasn't it? It was like a breath of fresh air. He is a lovely man. Pity he couldn't have stayed longer. You'll have to get on that plane sweetie!

BTW it's v strange that you can't link to my blog via my comments.
Luce was saying that she couldn't get to my blog either. She thought that I had stopped blogging :o{
