Another rainy day today but never mind we are enjoying our visit to John and Christine's home. Lovely old cottage, about 300 years old , has been fully renovated recently and is now a cosy home. Enjoyed a chat over breakfast and planned the day, if it stops raining. John had to attend to family matters most of the day, his Mum is not very well and needs full time care. Always a hard decision . The three of us just stayed home, Christine used to work on a cruise liner so we enjoyed lots of travel stories and some lovely photographs. What an interesting job to have and she has been to so many places in the world including Alaska, love to go there as well.
The rain eased up a little after lunch , we bit the bullet and hopped in the car to have a little look around this area. Lots of history here and some very old and extended families as well. It is nice when someone can tell you what the history of some of the manors are and you seem to appreciate it more.
It actually stopped raining for a while as well.
John returned to the fold late afternoon and after his emotional day he was ready for a wine and relax. Good on him, he had a couple extra but was happy and contended. Well done John.
The rest of the day was spend chatting and laughing and watching some of the opening ceremony of the para olympics. Got a little fed up with after a while and went to bed.
We have had a lovely time here with John and Christine, thanks guys, it was a very special time for us. Christine you are an excellent hostess and spoiled us rotten. John we hope you get to eat your cheese that you nagged Christine for most of the evening, but if I was her I would let you wait even longer, at least until you stopped nagging. If you ever come to Oz we will give you a piece of cheese and you can eat it by the swimming pool.
Good times were held by all. Just next time order some sunshine. TA
