Business, Shopping and Mussels. Yum

Combining business with pleasure is a pleasure.

I mentioned we have a visitor this week, from Estonia. Last time we met her I got my backside spanked hard for throwing a tantrum, can't see it happening this time though.

P has gone to collect Marietja from Birmingham International, then they're shooting straight to North Wales where they're meeting an employer who took on some Estonian students for summer work last year and wants some more this year. They'll stay overnight in Chester, not too far away, and I'll join them to make sure there's no hanky panky (joke), I like Chester very much actually, know the town quite well, so why not, I'll get there a bit early and do some shopping, Marietja likes seafood so we'll eat at 'Moules A Go-Go', they have fresh mussels daily from the Welsh coast plus nice fresh fish and other stuff, always good and reasonable prices.

Tomorrow morning we're introducing her to one of our own clients which hopefully will produce some business for us, then P's dropping her in Manchester where she has some friends and I'm heading back to the office, its less than a 90 min trip if the traffic's light. Marietja's making her own way back to us by train on Saturday, she'll stay overnight and P's dropping her back at the airport Sunday morning.

So a busy few days ahead, looking forward to them.

Sounds like a great time for you! Indeed, there isn't much better than mixing business with pleasure. Hope you can stay away from the spanking, at least til your guest has gone back home!

Sending you big hugs!

Sounds yummy! It's been a while since I've had mussels! Might have to put that on my list for the day, and with a late afternoon lunch apppointment, this might be a real possibility!

Hope you have a great outing!
