Long Weekend

On Friday I took a trip to Witney in Oxfordshire to visit one of my sons, his wife, and my granddaughter.

After an uneventful journey there on two buses and a train, I arrived just after eleven. We went out in their car to Bourton On Water, which is a very picturesque village in Gloucestershire. We met up with Emily’s family, John and Susan, too.

We had a nice afternoon there, and afterwards headed to Burford Garden Centre, where we explored both the toy shop and the cafeteria that had a lot of lovely foodie goodies to buy and take home. I got a rather delicious pork pie, which survived the journey home, but didn’t last long once I got there!

Indie , who is growing up fast, was a little grumpy a few times, but I think she enjoyed the day too!

I left Witney around nine pm, and got home around midnight after the return bus/train/bus journey.

Saturday was a lazy day. I got up quite late, and spent some time getting a few things tidied up on the computer. The iOS flash drives turned up too, and I was able to back up the photographs on my phone – almost five thousand of them.

On Sunday, Kathy and I were meant to be attending the Remembrance service at St. Leonard’s Church in Heston, but we were running a bit late, and ended up going to the Cranford Memorial instead, to see the wreath laying there.

Afterwards, we walked to the local Starbucks, and enjoyed a coffee.

We walked home, and I decided to go and get a pint or two in The Queen’s Head, which is rare for me on a Sunday these days.

A tasty roast pork dinner is in order at home afterwards, and then it’s an early night for a 3.30am alarm all on Monday morning.
