Response from Elaine:

SO pleased Shihab. It was a true pleasure to meet you both and your gorgeous little girl. We are very happy to stay friends with you and hope we get a chance to see you again as you are all so full of life and smiles. Language is no barrier when the face says it all. xx Elaine

Aw thank you Paul and Marylu. I think you are a really thoughtful and kind couple too, and was really touched that you had carried the little jar of maple syrup with you all the way from Canada, when luggage space is so precious! xx Elaine

Response from Elaine:

Thanks Taylor. I hope you had a lovely time with your friends in Manchester? I understand the artists bit of course! Hopefully you found your room and upstairs bathroom clean and tidy at least, as that is always our main concern. Our private areas are "lived in", after 26 years in the same house, as we have busy lives with Reel Life Photos wedding video and photography business. We always strive to find time to help make our guests happy though, of course. xx Elaine and Jorge

Oh thank you Daisy. So pleased you like the map and all the bits and pieces that have been added to the room, as time has gone by. Just sorry I didn't get to meet you as arrived back after you had gone to bed, and had to be at another wedding an hour's drive away by 7 am the following day - so very out of the ordinary! I really hope we get another chance to meet ! xx Elaine

Response from Elaine:

Thank you Pierre. We loved having you both. I think our house is even more "vintage" than your grandma, as it was built in 1872, and I love real wood furniture, that fits in with that in a way, so not surprised it reminded you of your grandmother! The return fare to Leeds from Dewsbury is better value too, as is currently £5.50 off-peak. You are both lovely people so we enjoyed having you.
