And now from our ghost writer Karen..........
 
"Well, the aussies came and went! So amazing to have them both in OUR house for a change! Didn't disgrace themselves too much. Managed to hold their cups properly (little finger away) and I only had to translate what Andy was saying to Brenda when we were driving, she could grasp it face to face. Seemed to enjoy lasagne even though there wasn't a hint of kangaroo in it. Actually very well mannered considering we made them sit in a cold bowling alley when it was warm outside to watch the Heinekin Rugby Final ...worth it cos Munster won!! Not sure about the photo of the Spinnaker Tower, its def. coming out of your heads guys, sorry. Next day it was "Famous Four Do Dorset" with the lovely Lulworth Cove ( quite a difficult word for our Brenda...) with stunning views and many photos. Then a wee picnic in the grounds of Lulworth (!) Castle, and an ice cream to the sound of gunfire! Southerners know how to lay on a welcome! On Monday, Michael feeling a little crook as you say, we set off for Dublin (its all that self wicking he does) The Townhouse was a good stay especially in rooms with weird names "The Shadowings" (further reference to Michaels underwear....) and a cracking breakfast. The first night was emotional with a sponteous marriage proposal in the bar , tears and photos all round. All the best Ben and Lydia wherever you may be! Next day it rained for hours.....found Bewleys Coffee House, Brenda recommended, very nice. The National Gallery was brill too, once we had found it! Meanwhile the lads were sniffing hops at the Guinness Factory........nuff said. Then it was drama time! While perusing the menu, my purse was stealthily removed from my bag! Never fear, my action heros sprang to the rescue.....PC Connelly and PC Riley sprinted after the perpetrator, pinned him against the wall of the Bank of Ireland and got my purse back!!! After a bit of thinking (he had been texting some friends(?) furiously when taken by surprise, the blokes from The Bill decided to let "this one go". To get over this event we all felt it necessary to have much too much to drink (mmm Guiness!) and stayed out dancing till 2 am! A great and eventful two days, glad it wasn't a week! xxx 
Karen & Andy

Thanks Karen and Andy, it was great catching up with you. Forgot to mention that you took us to Hambleton to the "home of cricket". Yes we even got to have a bat and bowl on this famous field where the first ever game of cricket was played. Mind you the spectators of the real game that was being played on the ground thought we were a bit odd!
