Mar 4, 2019 - More waiting

After much ado this morning we were informed that we won't be going through the locks today - because they don't work on the weekends our booking email was not received in time to give them 48 hours notice, so it's now Wednesday afternoon. £23.80 per person entry into Hampton Court - not today thanks!! The weather was fine so we set off to walk through the parklands attached to the Palace. We saw 3 herds of deer wandering around the place. There's a large golf course there with plenty of people out playing. This lump of wood is...

Mar 3, 2019 - We're through the Molesey Lock

Aug 10, 2007 - At Debbie's

August 7th to 10th There was half a bathroom wall and a big chunk of bathroom ceiling completely missing, leaving the bathroom open to the original landing and also to the new 2nd floor, so I decided to get up at 7am to shower before the builders arrived at 7.30, after which I kept out of the way by wandering around the shops in Kingston for the whole day. Debbie and Chris and the boys arrived at 5.30pm, by which time the builders had made the house almost habitable. We put the milk in the fridge and went out to eat. During the next three...
