I'm so excited for you two to meet! My dad is quite the character.....a Londoner with a quirky sense of humor! Tell him that I said he's a pillock....I'm sure you know what that means...that's a term of endearment to us and how we greet each other. lol

Tamara, they are meeting up tomorrow! lol

Yes, I'm familiar with Marks and Spencers isn't it linked to the Arndale Center by a bridge or something? I remember there was a bomb set off there back in 96.

You know what's funny? When I was 15 I went back to England....my brother in England gave me 50 pounds to go shopping...so dad took me to the mall. I dragged him in EVERY womens shop I could find....poor dad. lol And I didn't even have that much money. Things seemed cheap though. But I had to remind myself that "back then" if something cost 5 pounds that was really about $7.50.

Aaww Laura's mum got me some flowers.

Your mum said she will be home on Wednesday about 5.30pm/6pm and she said have a pot of coffee on Laura!!
The first picture was in Picadilly gardens, hasn't it changed Laura???
Then we went for a coffee, and had some lunch at Debenhams store!!
Oh I told your dad he was a pillock and he said tell her she's a Berk hehe.

I miss her! boohoo

More pictures is good! clap

My nana is a great cook! She always likes to fatten them up! lol

Personally I love her cooking but I'd just about cut my arm off for fish, chips, and mushy peas!

So how long were you all together then?
