This morning Mike, Jono, Angie, Jos, Ron, Abi and I went to hang out together for the day while Andrew, Lizzie and Elliot went to their meeting and witnessing. We headed off in the morning to Greenwich. It's sort of become a family tradition now that they go to Greenwich before they leave back for Australia.

It's changed a bit since we were last there, gone is the Walkabout, our regular weekend hangout, and now at the other end is the hugest shopping centre we have ever seen, no time for shopping though, we headed to a nice Pub for a catch up with Lumpy who had kindly driven Shelton there from work and were later joined by Lee, who also used to work with ...
