Still moored at Brentford.

Monday morning was a hive of activity with Dot and Tony on the computer trying to arrange a motorhome for Mary and Tony to tour Britain for their final 10 days before returning to NZ.  Mary and I were superfluous to requirements except when wanting to confirm a location or agree with a decision. By 11am it was all sorted after ringing at least 10 different companies. It was a toss up between three different companies who tried to out do each other with their deals and offers.

A quick check on trains on the computer, where would we be without it and it was off to the station. After a few tears between the girls we waved them away on the 12.09 to Waterloo to start the final leg of their holiday.

The rest of the day was spent relaxing with a book and the TV which has now got freeview digibox attached so we can select more channels. About 4.30pm we received a text message to say that Mary and Tony were spending their first night in Guildford.

Tuesday and the day dawned wet and cloudy. Only light rain but enough to get you wet pretty quickly. We have been down to the facilities block for a good loooong hot shower and hair shampoo so we are now super squeaky clean. A quick cuppa coffee and we will head off into town and Somerfields to replenish the larder before heading North probably on Thursday.
