Return of the Blog
July has been such a hectic time with visitors from Australia and our grandson (nearly four years old) staying with us for a week and attending a wedding in Germany and cleaning the house in Bath ready for new guests and driving down to Canvey Island for a family visit and another family event in Bucks and so on and so forth.......
We are now on the Thames heading south from Oxford for the first time.  Our aim is to join the Kennet & Avon Canal at Reading and thence to Bath (another first for Gecko).  After a glorious day of cruising we are moored on the lawns of Shillingford Bridge Hotel.  A bit of a shock as they charged us £20 for the pleasure (up from £10 last year apparently) . That means it's Lidl and Aldi for the foreseeable future. I wish now I had not subdued my desire to grab a bagful of broad beans from those fields near Pigeon Lock last week.
