Where I stayed
Wendy and Oliver Allen, The Old Rectory, Luddenham
Yesterday we visited Dickens World in Chathan as it was raining and this was an inside attraction. We went on the Great Expectations boat ride, saw part of an Oliver Twist play and experienced the Peggotty's Boathouse 4D cinema. It was ok however more suited to smaller children. The afternoon improved after returning home and Lizzie hooked the girls up on the fantastic zip wire (flying fox). We finally had to drag the girls off to start dinner. We have been spoiled with Oliver organising all our meals for us. Tonight was fresh sole from the market however Simon had to dig up the potatoes from the garden
Today we drove off to historic Leeds castle. Simon and Felicity headed for the classic cars exhibition whilst Genevieve and I watched the falconry show and visited the exotic bird aviary where we saw a NZ kea. We explored the castle and learnt about its history over the last 900 years. Wendy and I picked raspberries on our return and we sat down to a delicious roast chicken dinner. It was great to have the time to natter away while the girls watched a movie with George and Freddie.
