So, this surprise visit ;). I "met" Tammy a while ago after leaving a message on her sister Mandy's blog, when Mandy asked where people who visited her blog lived. I said I lived in West Sussex, England and shortly afterwards Tammy contacted me because her son was a missionary in West Sussex. It turned out that he was based in our town at that time and Tammy and I sent a few emails backwards and forwards.
To cut a long story short, yesterday Tammy contacted me on Facebook to let me know she was in England (a surprise birthday present) and wanted to know if we could meet up. Today that happened and we had a great time. Hugh and Emily came with me and we met Tammy, her husband, Alan and son Brandon for a drink and something to eat, before they carried on on their way to Eastbourne. It felt like we'd known them for ages and we could have quite happily spent longer in their company. Isn't the blogging world a fantastic way to get to know people from around the world - and sometimes even get to meet them :D
Tammy, Alan and Brandon, thank you so much for stopping in to see us; we really enjoyed meeting you :) Enjoy the rest of your time in England and safe journey home.
