We are off in an hour to pick up some friends from the airport.
They have been in Scotland this past week and are coming to stay with us for the next two weeks in order to watch the Manx Grand Prix motorcycle racing.
We haven't seen them in around 7 or 8 years so it should be quite a catch up.
They have come all the way from Reno, Nevada where I suspect they nay have had warmer weather than here.
Just checked our local forecast...
Tomorrow may be a bit of a washout by the look of it. We may have to stay indoors and eat cake.
Cake sounds good. Does it go with gin? Or a little port wine perhaps. Does chicken liver pate count as cake? Tiggers like cake if it does.ReplyDelete
That sounds like a perfect way to start a catch-up.ReplyDelete
You don't know how envious we are to read your forecast for tomorrow, hope the weather doesn't spoil your visitors' holiday!ReplyDelete
Here it's currently 32º and sunny (of course). Last night there was a lovely cooling breeze and for the first time in weeks I didn't need to sleep with the air-con on - even the dog didn't miss it!
We always visited IOM for the Grand Prix rather than the TT. My late dad (Laxeyman) marshalled for many years and was the ideal holiday companion as he knew all the back doubles to various places to watch the action.ReplyDelete
They will be coming to see you. The weather will barely play a part, although obviously would be the icing on the cake, if it WERE fine!ReplyDelete
Nowt wrong with eating cake. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
They will have lots of fun and they will be amazed at your new home. Relax and enjoy!ReplyDelete
A weather forecast and a cake forecast all in one post. That's value.ReplyDelete
Isn't Reno, Nevada a gambling town? Manx weather is also a gamble.ReplyDelete
Hope the rain keeps away so they can enjoy the racing. Presumably the races don't stop because of a bit of rain. The temperatures look fine to me!ReplyDelete
Wet weather tyres on the bikes?ReplyDelete
Those temperatures look good to me. Anything over 20c and it is too hot! Enjoy your friends ( and cake)ReplyDelete
How lovely to see old friends ..... have they been to the IOM before ? ..... very different from Nevada. You will all have a wonderful time no matter what the weather is like. I've never heard wine called cake before 🤣😂🤣 XXXXReplyDelete
Apologies for not replying to each comment. Spent last night talking, eating, drinking wine and more talking.ReplyDelete
Torrential rain today so visited the Manx Motor Museum's huge collection of weird and wonderful vehicles. A good way to pass a few hours in the pouring rain.
Must dash now and put the plonk in the fridge.
Hope all is well with you all out there.
It's so hard being the hostess with the mostest. Always make sure you are wearing a clean, pressed pinafore.Delete
It's always great to see old friends. Hope you had a great time JayCee.ReplyDelete
Ah Scotland. My favourite place to visit on Earth. Here's hoping for lots of cake AND good weather during your catch up.ReplyDelete
Sounds good to me! And you still have almost 2 weeks to catch up...ReplyDelete
