Weekend at Chris and Kathy’s

September 8th, 2005 | Posted by Davey in Pre-Travel Posts - (2 Comments)

A weekend Sam and I were really looking forward to, a final close to the summer…a weekend with our good friends Chris and Kathy in Cardiff, Wales. I have known Chris since the first year of university and we have remained good friends to this day. I had the honour of being his best man the day he got hitched to Kathy.

We headed to Cardiff to help Chris and Kathy toast their new house, sorry we have no photos – I swear I’m getting worse at this blogging lark…but it got off to a bad start…when we arrived at the New Severn Bridge i.e. the bridge linking England to Wales… I handed over my debit card to pay the £4.80 toll only to be told that they didn’t accept cards…only cash or stamps…did you ever hear the like…anyway, they sent us on a 40 minute round trip to the cash point, in addition to our 2.5 hour drive to Cardiff…not a happy bunny!

Anyway, when we arrived it was all forgotten and we started the weekend off with a cup of tea, which was quickly followed by a bottle of beer, and more beer of course! On the Saturday we enjoyed a barbecue with Chris and Kathy’s friends Nick, Louise, Jake and Katherine…who we have also gotten to know over the years.

Of course I can’t end without mentioning Cerys and Jacob; the most lovable children in the world…Chris and Kathy wouldn’t agree…but to us they are angles and full of energy. It’s a pleasure spending time with them…

Chris cook’n a few burglers and hostages…
