Shepperton, Thames Court (River Thames) – Sunday 22nd May

No news just booze today!!!  Well not really but we have been socialising all day.

Friends, Shirley and Barry, picked us up and took us to the Old Crown in Weybridge.  It is by the river and we have walked passed it before when we have been moored on the Weybridge side.  The others had an excellent roast while I had vegetable lasagne (I’m still on the mushy food!)  It was so nice to catch up with Shirley and Barry as we haven’t seen them for about 4 years as they always seem to be away when we are in Shepperton.

We got back to the boat about 3pm, caught our breath before Richard’s step-daughters, husbands and children arrived.  We couldn’t have them all on the boat so we went over to Thames Court (again) and sat outside while the children played.  I said last summer that there were 4½ of them well there are now 5 – Jules (Julius) was born last September.  It was lovely to see them all but you need eyes in the back of your head with 4 of them running around!

Richard and I collapsed into heaps in the evening but it has been a wonderful day and there was a lovely sunset.

A quick tooth update!  It’s not been too bad today but it still hurts to close my teeth together – so I will be sticking to the mushy food for a while.
