They came! Actually, they came ten days ago. But we were too busy being friends and drinking tea and buying salty snacks to blog.
Of course, the first few days passed in a blur, thanks to plane-triggered lurgy and Christmas. In that order.
But many cups of tea later, plus some time spent laying around sighing, we all felt well enough to explore a bit. Charles and Tony drove up to Solitude while Bart and I played Legos, cooked, and poked around town.
Alas, they've gone back to Blighty. But it was a lovely trip (more photos to follow) and we hope to visit them on their home soil soon.
