My parents have just been, had tea, and gone. I'm just like my dad in that I tell stories over and over again, forgetting what I already told to who. It gets annoying when I'm on the receiving end! Anyway, it sounds like they're pretty happy in their new house, and they're being sociable which is great.
I have recently been introduced to the music of Tripod! Amazingly amusing, fantastically funny, and I can't think of another two relevant words that start with the same letter. Darn alliteration.
