Di is over in Europe, combining sightseeing with catching up with friends and meeting up with long lost members of her family, ending up in Vienna, which is only an hour away from me. The plans for meeting up changed several times along the way, but finally we agreed to meet at a beer garden at 4pm. We decided in the end to drive rather than take the train, which turned out not to be a good decision. What should have been an hours journey turned into nearer 2. The traffic was awful, and half of Vienna is covered in road works. But after a bit of a stressful journey we made it!
Di was there with her husband, Mr Romance and her friends that she had been staying with in Austria with. Di and I got on like a house on fire, and fortunately Mr Romance and Mr Quiltova got on very well too, because they didn't get a word in edgeways with Di and I. They have already organised a tour of all the London pubs next summer when Di comes over for the FQ Retreat!
It was a very hot day, 36 deg c, but as we were sitting outside in the shade, it felt a lot cooler than that. But then the skies darkened and we had to move inside to avoid the storm, where the temperature was well over 36 degrees! The photos we took showed two slighlty boiled Di's, glowing somewhat (ladies don't sweat, they glow)

We left them in the early evening to get off to their hotel and prepare for the long journey home today. It was great to hear about their travels, but I know they are looking forward to getting back home.
And I look forward to seeing you again next year at the FQ Retreat. Thanks for a lovely afternoon.
