On Saturday we had the most wonderful reunion with the PE Lady and Chris from Finance from our infamous days working at the “Girls School”. It has to be said that it was emotional, so much so that we were a very remiss in our photo taking! However, we hope we were excellent hosts ……
…… serving mid morning tea upon their arrival and Aldi All Butter Scones with fresh strawberries and clotted cream, followed by taking them on a full and robust conducted tour of Evesham’s finest charity emporiums, at their request.
Let’s just say they were very impressed and several considered purchases were made.
However, poor Darrell had to avert his eyes at one conjuncture of the excursion when the PE Lady pointed out the diversity in the size of certain ladies accoutrements (all new and unworn I hasten to add) in Oxfam. Poor Darrell is very much an avowed a stranger to such ladies “things”!
But, there was also a very unexpected bonus to the afternoon, as they walked past a bustling betting office, Chris from Finance mentioned that she would have liked to put a bet on The Grand National, but didn’t know how to. Well ….. it turned out that the PE Lady is something of an aficionado and led the party into William Hill’s.
……. and showed Darrell how to make a £1 each way wager on Cocktails at Dawn, something we didn’t think we would have the time for due to our busy schedule …… Chris from Finance had a bet on number nine, but we can’t remember it’s name.
Sadly, on getting home and quickly turning on the tele, the aforementioned Cocktails at Dawn fell at the first. However on the MUCH brighter side The PE Lady had backed One For Arthur, the winner, so much celebration, embracing, jumping up and down and tears at the finish for everyone.
