It was really great seeing Matt again! It’s always nice seeing friends that are into the same “fun things”, that you are! Sure you get, what I mean!

Myself at Grantham railway station
It started by myself wearing a wetsuit, at the railway station! Think anyone could tell?!?!
Then of course had to get him wearing some rubber! Who can say no, to a cute lad in rubber?!?!?
Since it was National Dog Day, of course had to get him wearing this!
Double Spider-Man fun
Oh and my favourite of all, us both wearing Spider-Man suits!!

Remember you only live once! So have fun, when you can!!

Double Spider-Man fun!

Well got to say, had a great number of days with Matt so far! Knowing him for a good number of years, but only met up, twice so far! Got to say, us both wearing Spider-Man suits, was so much fun!

Meeting Matt at the railway station

Happy days! Matt is here, been looking forward to this for so long! We had been hoping to meet up in May…. But all that had to change, when the world went very, very mad! So it’s great getting to do more normal things again and meet up with friends!

So here are some photos of myself, waiting at Grantham railway station for him 🙂

P.S. Can you also guess, what else I was wearing?!?!? Comment below!!!
