My busy few weeks began with Keith leaving for Kosova, followed by the delivery of the two uni-babies to their respective universities on consecutive days. Tim to Sheffield on the Saturday; his new room was very nice with a lovely kitchen/living area :-); and Bridgie to her lovely house in Manchester on the Sunday :-).
It worked well because it meant I could also visit Meriel for her birthday before heading off on the long trek to Cornwall! We went to The Farmer's Cart for a birthday lunch, and it was delicious... the pictures speak for themselves...
Special Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding!
Back in Bedford I packed for the walk, although I did feel quite unprepared this time - I hadn't made a fruit cake, or bought the usual provisions. I decided to drive down because we thought the car might be useful this time. It was a long journey, 7 hours with the motorway very slow around Bristol, but we had a lovely evening walk around Cubert which was an excellent introduction to Part Two proper!
Ready for the off -Tim's stuff - Saturday morning!
