What's a twirlie? A twirlie is a pensioner!!! We call them that because they are frequently to be overheard saying (read it out loud) ..."I can't get the bus before 9.30 because it twirlie to use my bus pass".
They arrived yesterday afternoon. I picked them up from the station and brought them home. They had a cup of coffee and then we went to see the horses. There are about 5 dogs on our yard who are all really lovely and greet visitors very affectionately and enthusiastically. But the twirlies don't like dogs...well, they do but I think they're a bit scared! Last night I took them out to dinner and caught up on all the family gossip.
Today I've got to get them all up to St James Park in Central London to watch the finish line of the Marathon...that means using the tube - yikes...that's going to be a bit tricky!!! I would take the car - but London will be a veritable nightmare today - roads closed etc etc
They've been here less than 24 hours and I'm exhausted already!!!
