My friend MichÃ¨le Sharik is visiting the UK to both perform and to see some of the country, guided for much of the way by our friend Martin. Yesterday, they arrived in the North East, and were waiting for me when I got home from work. After chatting for a while, our other friend Kathy arrived. Pausing only to pose for the Lescam,
we soon took a stroll into Newcastle, where we had a wee drinkie:
We then went to Casa Italia for a meal, before returning home.
 MichÃ¨le is a highly talented player of handbells and a member of the Sonos Handbell Ensemble
 Hi Martin!
 If you had a proper website, you could have a Losing it link, too! Think of the fame!!!
 I hasten to add that this had been prearranged. I’m not sure how I’d react to strange foreigners turning up on my doorstep unexpectedly…
 Hi MichÃ¨le
 So don’t even think about it, Twisty!
 There seem to be a lot of them about at the moment
