willows Posted February 24, 2007 Report Share Posted February 24, 2007 Corina , your step-mum and Dad are such lovely people , you are so lucky to have such wonderful , welcoming , kind and friendly parents.My hubby , both the boys and I went to find Corina's parents while we were away in Cornwall this week , but just as we arrived the local council decided to tarmac the whole of their road , we drove up and down and around all the roads near to their house but just couldnt get within 10 feet of the front door on the first attempt.Two days later and the road was clear ............. so I quietly walked into Corina's Dad little garden shop and said 'Hello' are you...............and he beamed at me , yep he knew exactly who I was .SO .................Corina , I didn't know you couldnt stand up for more than a few seconds your dad was surprised that I could stand /walk , but I think he did find it rather strange that I 'rocked ' from foot to foot all the time ( to stop me falling down ) My hubby was nattering away to your dad , being an ex boat builder when he saw all the wonderful boats your dad owned /had in the past he was in his element and your parents wonderful home , a beautiful cottage , all wooden beams, wonderful pictures of your family ..........yep I saw you all !!!!! and your wedding photo to .I have invited them to come up to see us then they next come to Yealmpton to get plants , which is the next village to us , do you know we must have passed them on the road so many times when they have come this way , so strange I gave your step-mum a big box of Terry's old gold ( milk ) by the way , so I hope she eats chocolates ..........or your dad if he's anything like my hubby they wont touch the sides and he will swear blind it 'wasnt him' !!!!!So in all we had a lovely time with your parents and have taken some photo's of them in their back garden and yes, one of me with them just to prove it !!!!Mark ( hubby) is going to log on to your dad's garden page to see if there is any plants for our garden , I cannot believe that my hubby and your dad have so much in common , Mark trained in horticulture after his accident so he was able to natter away about this as well ................so both boys were nattering away most of the time , and they say us woman are the worst ( only kidding ) I now look forward to your parents coming to see us soon and hopefully I can feed them some of my special cakes and things . It really was so nice to be able to call in and speak to them and I do look forward to seeing them again .Bye for now AMI. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
