Nudging for 29 sleeps ..( I think)

It´s going to be really strange to go back to my home town after all these years. In 30 plus years I have been back for 2 funerals my Gran and my great Aunt and they were both in Beighton. I hope I crash a few brick walls as that is my reason for going. A trip down memory lane of childhood will not go amiss. Will I dare knock on the house that Dad built and ask to look inside, even more dare I go to my great aunts place that gt grandad built and have a nose ? Will I return to my old school in Ridgeway. can I check out where Mum´s shop was in Healey. I know thanks to Annina that I will catch up with at least 1 old friend. I will visit my family that are still there, my Uncle on Mum´s side I am in touch with and they know I am coming. My dad´s sister may have a bit of a shock :-0. She last saw me 17years ago. I am going to meet relations that I have never met ( a cousin who was 6mths old the only time I saw her) , and also relations that I should have met that I never knew about.
This visit is about finding the past but for me also about finding the now.

Mind I have several days and the weekend is ..well it´s ..Okay the only way to say this ..IT¨S GOING TO BE FUN :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

I was just thinking that it was time to give this a nudge and here it is already nudged.

I can´t believe how soon it is now, it seemed an age when I first decided to return to Sheffield and now it´s nearly here.

Foggy sorry you can´t make it.
Mo I´m not even packing my best behavior because it will only get creased and crumpled in the case :-D I shall be about on the Friday having arrived there on the Tuesday (didn´t want to be late :-D )

Any more coming ???
See the rest of you there :-D :-D :-D

Nudge Nudge
Its getting closer girls,only about 40 sleeps to go now
Just say it quickly and it sounds shorter :-D
Looking forward to it too
Have now checked on our bus and train to Victoria coach station and will have to leave home about 6am.
Its a bit early,as the coach isnt till 9,but that allows for any delays,and maybe a quick breakfast somewhere
See you all soon
:-D :-D :-D :-D
