Weekend with the "girls"

This weekend three of Mary's friends from college came down to London for one of their occasional get-togethers. The girls were all at the University of Strathclyde and have kept in touch ever since. Indeed Geraldine was Matron of Honour at our wedding.

Geraldine and Alisdair drove down from Glasgow Friday night arriving at 2am the next morning, Christine flew down Saturday morning and Liz and Peter drove Saturday afternoon.

We assembled late afternoon for a glass of champagne, Billecart-Salmon 1996, before going off to Steam Bar for a meal. Liz and Peter had to go back that night; the others stayed and caught up on more news till the wee small hours.

The next day we went for a stroll round the local area including the River Wandle and the local auction house. This was followed by a beer at The Waterfront then a late BBQ lunch.

Geraldine and Alisdair went back that evening and Christine the next morning leaving us to recover and potter about the house.
