A Visit from Leon's Aunt Molly

(posted by Elizma)

We went up to London last night to see Leon's Aunt Molly. She was on a quick stop-over in London on her way to Helsinki from Lusaka in Zambia. We had dinner with his two cousins, Shaun and Megan and Shaun's girlfriend, Candice at a very nice Thai restaurant in Fulham Broadway - Blue Elephant.

It's really nice for me to meet the family one-by-one and Leon enjoys catching up with his family - who are dotted all around the world.

But, we almost didn't make it. We had it booked in the diary and Leon was planning to go straight from work. I would've travelled in by train after work and we would've all met up in Fulham.

To cut a long story short, we forgot! Leon came home as normal, I prepared supper and had it going in the oven when Leon decided to quickly call his family. A chance remark by his Dad sparked a mad frenzy in our house as we realised that it was actually yesterday. We had to travel all the way into London (in rush hour) and we had to do it within an hour.

Luckily the travel fairies were smiling down on us and we made it in ample time. It did help that she was slightly delayed.

I have one suggestion: Google Calendar, with notifications going out via SMS or email ... whichever will help. :-) I'm terrible at remembering things.
