"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,

Cheryl was perfectly clad for today's arctic May weather!
I had to laugh the restaurant rang me to suggest I bring blankets
But they were right!
By the looks of it thank goodness you did, poor Cheryl ;-)
Beautiful. John I am so pleased for you all in Wales. I feel like there really is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I’m going to Liverpool tomorrow to see my friend Colin , over the border
Lovely, have a fab time
It certainly looks cold, but I bet those hugs warmed you both up, mentally as well as physically. xx
That’s the important lesson from the day , physical hug mental recharge
How wonderful to get together with old friends! Cheryl sure looks cold but I know it warmed her heart to reconnect with you!
She’s had a hard couple of years...it was lovelyto reconnect
Two folk tolerating less than favorable weather to be able to hug an old friend are to be treasured.
I shed a tear on the way home
Old friends are the best.
Ain’t that the truth
Cheryl has a lovely warm face John-she reminds me of my friend of 20 years Paddy who passed last year-I think of her most days and I would love to meet her again in a rainstorm under rainbow xx
I met her when we were both psychiatric nurses .
Isn't hugging the best?
The welsh have a name for itCwtch
I learned the word cwtch from the harrypotterfanfic Rise of the Drackens (131 chapters and not finished yet) about Harry finding out he's a dracken at 16, mating with 4 male lovers and family life. One of his lovers is Welsh :)
How wonderful to be able to hug those you care about again! Hope you were as warmly dressed as Cheryl is. It's nice to "meet" Cheryl, too.Long distance hugs to you both!
Less so ....I couldn’t walk when we got up to leave
I'm not naturally much of a hugger, but even I am looking forwards to its return. Arilx
Practice is important
Cheryl has a lovely friendly face x
She is a lovely friendly person
How happy... but cold... Cheryl looks! The green of that lovely woven blanket sets off Cheryl’s gorgeous hair to perfection! We’re you wearing your best Walking Dead Teeshirt?
I was indeed the one with carol on it
"Make new friends, but keep the old.The former are silver, the latter are gold."
I have old friends too John - many I haven't seen for years as I have moved around - but telephones are handy.
Effort is always needed x
good on both of you!
You could have taken along a bulldog to keep your roes warm
A lot of Welshmen have hugged sheep throughout the pandemic. In fact it has been a bit more than hugging.
Same in Yorkshire :-)
That must be how he knows.
Cheryl looks very happy wrapped in that blanket. Cozy and warm having a nice meal, great hugs and a good catch-up with you. I hope you had a blanket as well. Nothing is better than a long standing friend with history to share.
I think I'd have gone to MacDonald's and eaten in the car!
She looks frozen. Just sayin'.
Recently, I finally felt the touch of another person, and it was heavenly.Love,Janie
Hugging Cheryl must have made your day .... even if it was a bit chilly ! You are really making up for lost time this week .... enjoy every hugging moment ! XXXX
You can't beet a good cwtch, sadly human touch has been missing for so many people for far too long.
Well done. I don't think we'll take hugs for granted ever again.
I hate hugs, apart from with my wife. Weird me again.
You are not alone ANdrew.
Thinking back to earlier post comments, we do seem to share quite a lot of good sense that others find weird, Rachel.
That's a great picture, although she looks cold!
I love all comments Except abusive ones from arseholes
