Last night in IRELAND then Back in ENGLAND

After a wonderful stay including a last night at Carton House we arrived back into London and picked up a car at Gatwick. We went to the house at Canary Wharf and zoomed off to St Paul’s Catherdral for their Evensong. Ian’s wife was singing in the choir and they had special seats. It was great. Sat up in the choir stalls, so had a great view of everything. What’s magnificent place.

After it was over we walked through the area behind St Paul’s and went to Nix. It was a very nice stylish restaurant for oysters and steak. Had a lovely meal and still got home in time to share a wine and chat with Elizabeth and Peter McGregor and Erin ( waterpolo captain’s parents and wife) They are lovely people and that was one of the things we missed with Rob not in the team. We always share with them and this time it was different.

An early start to pack up our things then a drive across the river to Bermondsey. It’s just over Tower bridge. We met up with Georgia   and John and my friend Lynne from Canada. It was lovely seeing her again.

Then we collected our things and drove overe to Parson’s Green to collect Pip. What a lot of driving. Steve is great — knows his way around well and the little Our Lady of Directions was a good help.

We headed off for Henley and it was the most perfect evening. We arrived at a funny little pub and our rooms were really quite good. Headed down to the river and found the perfect summer pub and had the perfect summer drink. Pimms! Gorgeous night and several Gins and Pimms later we found a place for dinner and then back and watched some of the closing ceremony . I’m glad it’s finally over! It was sad tho think Rob was so close to being there but a %$%^$^ of a coach put a stop to it.

And so to bed because we have our visit to Highclere Castle otherwise or better known as Downton Abbey of the TV show. Pip and I can’t wait but Steve is not so enthusiastic. It’s a boy thing so I’m glad Pip is here.

Photos soon
