The smile of a friend

I am so excited, because today is the day that German student Suzanne, who stayed with us three years ago is coming back to stay. She was 16 and is now all grown up. I am so excited to see her and her boyfriend. I must confess that I am not so excited about the idea of having to be at the airport at midnight..yuk!! However the pleasure of sharing your home with good friends is always such a pleasure. I have to get my on cake making head and intend to make a strawberry sponge tomorrow.

Funnily enough she left a small ornment here and we didnt realise that untill she was back in Europe. I told her I would keep it here untill she came to see us again.....ha ha who would have thought it would happen? I am delighted to be able to present it too her, I think she has forgotten.

Well it's now 8.30 and we are going to go and get something to eat, then off to the airport. YEAY!!!!

ta ta for now.
