Tuesday - it was sad this morning as Maggie and Richard were leaving. Victoria came for breakfast and then we packed up her car and the three of them were soon on their way to Heathrow where M & R will pick up a hire car for 24 hours before flying back to Florida tomorrow. It has been great having them here. It has been wonderful for me as Richard II has done all the cooking and most of the washing up. Also I’ve hardly had to do a lock!
However there was some good news as Richard managed to get the washing machine going :-) Even though he had checked the fuse Jim suggested that he change it and lo and behold the washing machine sprung into life! Very strange! It was a nice day so I got all the bedding washed and dried outside. We took Muffin for a walk to the river and then I explored Lidl – it is good value in there I have to say.
|Where's the train?|
|Richard is in usual position enjoying the steam and smuts!|
|The Sir Keith Park|
|Statue of a WW1 soldier|
|Bridgnorth's "Leaning Tower of Pisa"|
We had intended on catching the 3.20 diesel train but it was cancelled so had to wait for the 4.30 steam train which was even better. Richard decided that we would go back First Class which was great – we were even served a cup of tea but not in china cups! Muffin made himself quite at home on a jacket on his First Class seat and slept nearly the whole way.
In the evening we went to the Thai Emerald in Evesham – it was our fourth visit over the years and is still one of our favourite Thai restaurants.
