Where I stayed
With family and friends
As the chauffeur, I managed to get us in one piece (albeit rather dizzy from all the repeat roundabouts where I'd missed the exit!) over a pretty vast area north to Oxford, south to Charmouth in Dorset, east to Tenterden in Kent and west to Bath. Absolutely gorgeous scenery - green rolling hills punctuated by fields of fluorescent yellow rapeseed crops, woodlands carpeted with vibrant blue bells and cute English cottage gardens all out in bloom.
A "luuurvley" time with the Luke family in Frilsham, a "rather fun" stay with David in Tenterden, a nostalgic visit to Marlow and Hurley with the Castrees, a trip to Finlandia and a Wii bit of hilarity with Chris & Ali on our day trip to Charmouth stopping en route at the Abbortsbury Swannery where it was easy to mistake the sound of baby swans with castrated lambs, a "jolly rarrrrrring" time with Gavin, Lynn and the boys in Epwell Oxfordshire, a tick off the bucket list with a dip in Bath, a gallivant through the valley of the horses with cousins Pat and Sue in Lambourne all topped off with the occasional cream tea!
An incredible journey of family discovery that I will cherish forever! Thanks Nan xo
