Where I stayed
Rita and Tony's House in Ashford Common
When we returned we gathered our luggage and checked out and waited to be picked up at 10:30. It wasn't long until Jake arrived and took us back to Toft where Max had used the cushion on the porch furniture to set up a dinosaur pirate ship. He has a great imagination. Jim and Max went to the pet store to get feed for the chickens while the rest of us had a cup of tea
We went to the Blue Lion in Hardwick just a couple of miles away. We decided to eat outside on the patio. Larry and I got the roast beef with roasted potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. It was delicious. For pudding we had berry crumble with custard. While we were waiting on our food, Max fell in the play area and cut his lip and scratched his chin. He is very active and quite fearless. When we returned we had a cuppa tea while Jake put some slides of my mom in Spain with Jane on a memory stick so I could put the pictures on my computer.
We left Toft about 3:45 and headed south to London. For a Sunday during school break the traffic was not too bad going down, but it looked really busy for Jane's return on the M25, the ring road around London. We arrived at Rita and Tony’s about 5:20 and had a short visit before Jane headed back. Jane had brought her photo album and Rita helped her identify some of the children at the 1971 Family Gathering for our Gran’s 80th birthday. Of course we had a cuppa tea and some of Tony’s fruit cake.
After Jane left we had some time to relax and talk and watch the telly, the closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games. It was after 8:00 when we had a light supper of bread, cheese, pate, tomatoes, cucumbers and fruit. We watched some more telly and then went to bed.
