The night we met, I had gone out for a drink with Steve, it was particularly late. We were at the bar, strategically positioned, when I noticed a tall blonde girl by herself. She had obviously been stood up by her friends, so I plucked up the courage and invited her to join us for a drink.
Post Pride Party
After meeting Kasia from work we went to pride at Preston Park, then back to my place for cocktails.
A nice warm summer's night, Steve tried to pick up Katie and throw her in the sea. He failed miserably at picking her up...
Took Katie to a nice country pub, wanted to show her some Sussex landmarks, but a flat tyre put an end to that idea.
In the car
This was was my phone screen-saver for ages.
1st Proper Date
After the disastrous first date when I got a flat tyre we went for a thai meal at Sovereign Harbour.
Late Night Shopping
I asked Katie to come late-night shopping with me. The surprise being that it was at Gatwick...
A nice chinese meal on a boat at Brighton harbour. Katie wearing impractical shoes, it was to be a few more weeks until I would see those lovely legs again.
Another favourite photo...
Sitting at Port Olympus, drinking sangria and eating paella.
I love this drawing, very soft. Photograph taken after a special time in our relationship ;)
We'd got up too late for the hotel breakfast so we went to a tapas bar. The portions were tiny and due to language problems arrived all too slowly.
On the beach at Barcelona. One of very few drawings that I have actually done when on holiday.
On our last day in Barcelona.
Another nice drawing of Katie on the beach in Barcelona...
Katie wrapped up warm against the cold Warsaw weather. This was her on our trip to the top of the Palace of Culture and Science.
