We can't believe this is our last day in the UK!

Wow. Time sure has flown! It feels as if we only arrived yesterday, stepping off the plane looking new and in awe of everything and now have to pack and head off back in the direction of Oz. We're looking forward to the rest of our trip in Thailand but at the same time are sad to leave...

Early morning goodbye to Luke

3.30am is early. Very early. Infact so early it is still pitch black, the stars are still sparkling and there is no one else on the roads to London… we know this as it was the time we were up today in order to take Luke to the airport! The drive from Chipping to Heathrow takes just over an...

It's official: we hate packing, but love chinese food!

We picked Luke up from the station today at about 10am or so. He’d had a great night with his mates, having dinner, drinks and watching the footy, typical boy stuff, and as much as he wanted to stay on there he also knew he had to come home and pack himself. Luke is off tomorrow on a mystery...

Our highlight today was a 3 km walk to get brocolli, oh yes, we're living it up big time here in the UK!

Another very quiet day that didn’t see us do much. The highlight was a 3km walk into Buntingford to buy some broccoli for tonight’s roast… I know, hold onto your hat material! We just pottered about the house, cooked and relaxed and thought about packing, and I mean thought about it, we didn’t...

While Luke goes to London, we stay in bed!

Luke has really caught the travel bug since being here and today took a trip to London to check the sights there again. Chris and I have been really content in pottering about the house and just generally relaxing, it’s something we haven’t been really able to do for a few months. I mean, sure...

Such a quiet day there's hardly any sense blogging!

Another quiet day today which saw much the same as yesterday, sleep ins, pottering about the house, Luke took another visit to Cambridge to finish off his site seeing and buy a few bits and bobs and we had another yummy curry dinner! As I said, much the same as yesterday

Sleep in, DVDs and a yummy meal

With such a huge day of travel yesterday we were all kind of bushed today and rewarded ourselves with a nice long sleep in, which was just what we all needed to be honest. When we did all rise Luke decided to take a trip into Cambridge while Chris and I pottered about the house, doing the...

On the bus, off the bus, on the bus, off the bus, on the train, off the train...

Oh my goodness, today took FOREVER! We had to be up bright and early to get to the bus station an hour before the bus left, which we did, but were then told by the check in desk we were too early and couldn’t do this (they send such mixed messages here in Europe!) so we sat about waiting to...

Glorious sleep!

Sleep. Sleep. Sleep. This was our total agenda for today, and it felt so good! After a nice long sleep in we got up and pottered about the house slowly doing this and that, a bit of washing and defrosting dinner but nothing too stressful. Sue and Patrick came home and we then helped them as...

Back to Chipping

It only took a few minutes to pack the tent up this morning, we were up and out pretty quickly as we were aware of the long drive ahead of us (8+ hours!) We head to Dells home for breakfast where we also met his good friend Tony, who is, we have to say, a very very funny man (in a ha ha way,...
