Inaugural auspiciousness

At the beginning of the month, Tense Towers had another visit from First Born. She arrived in a bit of a gale (interesting plane landing), had several sunny walks (yes, really) and finally managed to synchronise social engagements with Sian from 'Life on a Small Island'.

First Born, Sian and Our Lass
Years ago, before Our Lass and I moved to Orkney, it was First Born who found Sian's blog and pointed her dad in its general direction. The rest, as they say, is history... or his and her stories, if you're being pedantic (Who? Us?).

So it was a rather special moment to be present at the first meeting of the two, which occurred, unsurprisingly enough, in a cafe. The table didn't stay this empty for very long.

I'm not sure why they're being all so smiley and looking at the photographer, but it could have something to do with the fact that the cake counter is behind me.

That's interesting, Sian has got a lot to answer for. You never know we might end up there one day! Incidentally I found Sian's blog through 'Island Explorer' and your blog through Sians. On another note Lincoln is buzzing at the moment due to our fantastic non league football club turfing out bigger clubs and unbelievably reaching the quarter finals of the age old competition. Kind regards, Mark.

Lincoln's achievements are amazing! My team scraped through against lower league opposition, so who knows, we may be rivals in the next round?

And mine just didn't bother to leave the dressing room - no change there then!

Surely they DO change in the dressing room?

Can always rely on you to make me giggle!

OOooh just catching up on your blog (I know.... disgraceful my tardiness in reading your erudite postings...). It was lovely meeting Sal at last. I'm very grateful to her :-) And yes the cakes were delicious as ever...

And I appreciate the sitters. Really pleased with the photo. It is normally so difficult to capture natural happy faces.
