The first weekend of May saw Rach and Ryan in England (visiting from Down Under) and we managed to catch up with them for a picnic in Hyde Park with Team Ferg.
Once again the sun had his hat on, and we all enjoyed a lovely time together... especially as Ryan brought beer that he wanted drinking! After enjoying paninis, salad and mini sausages the girls disappeared to the cafe for a catchup (read; the girls disappeared to the bar to talk sh!t, drink wine, and moan about us men).
Dave, Ryan and I were left with Dan, Joe and Alfie. Before long Dave and I went for a walk to take the kids over to the big wheel and other rides situated in Hyde Park. This left Ryan chilling out on a picnic blanket enjoying the sun.
What we came back to was an entirely different scenario though! Ryan had decided to take a seat on a park bench and keep an eye on our belongings from afar. Maybe this is acceptable in Australia, but what Dave and I returned to see was an Antipodean laid back on a park bench, can of Fosters in hand, shouting at anyone that went within 20 yards of our kit. I do feel sorry for those who had to endure him for the 24 hours of their flight home!
In fairness, it wasn't quite that bad, but Dave and I sure saw the funny side of it! It was a perfect day out, and we cannot wait till Christmas when they fly back to visit once more!
