Where I stayed
Rita and Tony's House

Flag of United Kingdom  , England,
Monday, August 4, 2014

We got up about 8:00 and had porridge, juice and tea for breakfast. Tony took Cocoa their dog for a walk and Rita went to pick up Ursula's dog, Anika which they keep during the day.  While that was happening Larry and I took showers and had some time to relax and read etc.  Catherine, Rita’s daughter, and her children, James nearly 11 and Ellen 8, came to collect their gerbils as they had been camping in Dorset.  I forgot to take a picture of them.   Rita will be taking care of her grandson Felix this afternoon while we visit Kew Gardens.

So we had a quiet morning.  For lunch we had cheese and ham sandwiches and pate and cucumber sandwiches with tomatoes, radishes and green onions from the garden.  There were two kinds of crisps (potato chips) and for dessert we had more of Tony’s fruit cake.  After lunch Rita went to pick up Felix from nursery school and put him down for a nap.  Then we set off for Kew Gardens.  On the way there we encountered a traffic jam due to a closed road and by the time we got away from there, it was going to take too long as Rita had to get back to take Felix to physiotherapy, so we headed back.  We were gone over an hour for a trip that should have taken half an hour.  So we had a quiet afternoon of doing crossword puzzles, reading and napping.

About an hour after Rita got back from taking Felix to physiotherapy, Ursula and Matilda arrived to pick up Felix and Anika.  Ursula is Rita’s other daughter.   We had a short visit and I did remember to take photos this time.  For supper we had chicken done in the slow cooker with carrots, onions and a tomato sauce with new potatoes and runner beans from the garden.  For pudding we had ice cream cake.  After supper Larry and I packed putting all the heavy stuff in the small bag and most of the clothes in the large bag.  We visited the rest of the evening and then went to bed.
