Decided to make the big, and much anticipated trip into Liverpool!  Left home about 10.15am and caught the train from Lea Green station to Lime Street. We arrived in Liverpool about 11am. It was so strange seeing our old stomping ground ... Read more >

Wow, what a busy day! We started off with Allan and Dot at a car boot market in Chelford, Cheshire. You’ve never seen so many ‘car boots’ in your life! We didn’t buy much as we have to consider our weight restrictions travelling back to Australia.... Read more >

After a fairly long journey, made much easier by Tom-Tom! As Allan's house is apparently difficult to find, he met us at the Burtonwood Services. How good it was to see him again after over 20 years. Mind you, his new teeth are a bid disconcerting! He ... Read more >

As this is our last day in Crowthorne for a couple of months, we decided to go to Winchester Cathedral (how many of you are singing the song now?) with Jean. Chris had to work and so Ron drove the Rover - our first real trek in it! Luckily, Chris has ... Read more >

Not much to report day, after yesterday being so full on we decided to have a lazy day today. We drove into Camberley and walked around the shops (surprise, surprise). Then we drove into Sandhurst to Marks and Spencers and Tescos. Tescos is a bit different ... Read more >

Wow - what a day! Drove with Chris and Jean to Exbury, in the New Forest, about an hour and a half from Crowthorne. There were wild ponies and donkeys all over the place, plus large white cows wandering free. We saw one pony suckling its foal at the ... Read more >

Today we decided to go to Hampton Court Palace, somewhere we were both looking forward to seeing. Chris and Jean came with us, and we started off in the Rose Garden - full of glorious old fashioned roses, filling the air with their scent. We decided ... Read more >

Another wettish day, although not as bad as the last two! Went into Banbury with Sam and dropped off car for the mechanic to have a look-see. Used Sam's car to drive into Banbury, where we had breakfast (having left home far too early). Bought a garden ... Read more >
