    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

    ... east of Toronto called Port Hope. We had lunch at a lovely pub, checked out the local shops and walked along the lake front. Last weekend we went to a place called St Jacobs where there is a large local market. There were lots of fruit stalls and we bought some pears and nectarines which we found out later are not actually in season. We assumed that the fruit was local but when we got home we saw that the stickers on the pears said that they were from Argentina and to top it off they ...

    August 15th - back to Cheadle Hulme again, on a very efficient (and expensive!) train, and Sarah's friend Julie comes to stay for the weekend. I feel that I already know Julie, as she was my "contact' when Sarah was ill, and also ...

    ... than looking at the falls themselves! Lots of fun. We stopped at Timmy's for Ice Capps before heading to a park to enjoy them and plan Saturday - we're thinking a trip to Niagra Falls. Even though the conference is organising a day outing to Niagra on the Tuesday after camp, neither Ash or Beth will be able to make it due to work, so I might end up going twice.

    We came home and sat on the couch and ...

    ... exist. It had to, otherwise this would be a major manufacturing fault. One store said what i wanted to do was possible, but i needed to find 2 pieces and then attach those together blah blah blah... One store said a thing like that didn't exist. Poppycock! I'm sure it does, it would be too stupid if it didn't!! I went into a third store and had a poke about. I asked a young man about it and he said they didn't have it, but he did know of it's existence. I looked very happy ...
