Paula it´s a cheek, I would always wait to be asked, would never text to ask over a phone call even if I knew the people. The reasons for you saying no have amused me and I must remember some of them. As you can´t get out of it I would during the evening make a comment about " you did offer to pay for us in lieu of rent for B&B didn´t you ? " or something similar !

Enjoy the evening anyway

I have never met Paula, but ...........seeing of her what I have on here she comes across as very decent and polite soooooooooo regardless of what she thinks, I bet she has welcomed them in to her home and sent them on their way with their bellies full :-D

Whatever she did, it's about time she got on here and told us about it.

Our visitors turned out to be the perfect overnight guests. We had a fantastic night with lots of good friends, very very very late night but lots of fun and laughter. This morning OH made breakfast and we sat in the garden. Before they left they invited us to their house for dinner and stay over. Chatting last night to a couple of other ladies several were having over night guests. Perhaps sometimes we can be just a bit to quick to judge before we meet someone.

Feeling a little bit fragile at the moment so off to the golf club later for lunch.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

PS. Oh just said " What a nice polite well mannered young couple" I have to say I agreed with him.

How nice that the couple turned out to be such lovely guests and have invited you back to theirs as well. Now, were you feeling fragile because you overindulged to help you through the dreaded stopover, or were you still celebrating when you got home after fnding them so pleasant?

Either way, I am glad it all went well and you enjoyed the special occasion, and hope the lunch helped you recover.
