Sew Today was outta London.
There was a friend that I hadn’t seen for ages and he invited me down to Wales to spend a few days. He was my Manager for 5 years and became the person that I phoned from work on a Friday afternoon. We’d talk about work and personal stuff, it was such a nice way to end the week. He became ill a little while ago, so when we finally were able to contact each other again, I jumped at the chance as I knew he was on the mend.
I got the Coach down there so I could chill out and have a snooze; the journey was only 3 hours long. He met me from the coach and we gave each other the biggest hug.
We chatted for hours and he tried to fatten me up on homemade welsh cakes. I met his daughter and Grandson who has the most plump cheeks I have seen on a child for so long. I had to stop myself squeezing them like I do to my Nephews.
On the first day he cooked a fabulous meal and I slept in a big bed with an en-suite.
The following day we went to meet another of my ex managers who now runs a coffee shop (The Coffee Post) in Fairford, which in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire.
It is picturesque little town.
