Mr P will be having his last day amongst the chums he has made while on a contract with Hampshire County Council tomorrow evening, as when he checks out of his B&B on Friday morning that will be it! (he starts at Bath & North East Somerset Council the following Monday.
Now, here's the question! During his 14 month spell down/up there, he has made some really good friends, one of whom (Keith, aged 78) has been especially nice, preparing the odd casserole, home made soup etc. Keith has occasionally phoned over the weekend that Mr P is home, to check if Mr P is actually coming that week, so that he can work out if he should cook the extra bit! Keith has also expressed a wish to meet me. Mr P also attended the funeral of one of the champs who was a regular fixture at table 4. Quite young, double leg amptutee because of diabetes
Now, sorry for the long delay, but do I drive down there tomorrow for what will be his last night with his chums? I know that that there has been a thread about a spouse not being invited to her DH's leaving do, but perhaps this is a bit different?
My usual 5.30pm conversation with Mr P makes me think that to drive down as a surprise, and just be in or walk into the pub where are will be a good thing. He phoned a while ago a bit "emotional" to say that he was so touched that 27 members of the Table 4 Club had all come out to see him, in case they couldn't make it tomorrow!
Referring back to paragraph. right now I think "yes", but is it a total waste
of fuel, or a loving gesture?
