It didn’t take much persuasion for Derek to agree to a pub lunch instead of a Heathrow sandwich for lunch and we were soon on our way, driving along familiar roads and remarking on how little things seem to change. Our pub lunch was an excellent reminder of just how good English beer is and despite the length and breadth of our recent travels and much testing by the wayside there are few countries that can rival the beers of the British Isles!
Our last few trips home have coincided with lousy weather and it was a pleasant change to drive back to Somerset under beautiful blue skies. The kids were so excited to see Grandma and Poppy (the dog) that the drive passed quickly. We had arrived on the fifth birthday of our niece Hannah and so after much hugging, bouncing and tail wagging we were off again – time for tea and birthday cake! It was a full family affair and Lauren and Alex were so excited to see all of their cousins after not seeing a single soul that they knew for six months!
Happy Canada Day to all of our friends at home! It seems odd to think of our friends celebrating Canada Day in the warm sun when last time we saw most of them the temperature was hovering in the minus 40’s!
