Mother Goes Home

We have had my mother staying with us for 3 weeks, she has thoroughly enjoyed it and we have enjoyed having her, another good reason for being in this country as in to see relos for an extended period rather than a few days every few years.

Before we left we took her to our favourite walking place Alderley Edge.

She was most impressed with the view, as we are every time we go there.

On the way back we had a ice cream break at Higher Poynton which is where the Braidbar Bunch HQ is situated. None of the Braidbat Bunch were there as they were all down at Crick with their leaders Bruce and Sheila. Once again they will be drowning their sorrows and shaking their heads in disbelief  as a Braidbar boat didn't win best of show.   

Moving along the canal, mother fed the ducks.

We walked up to Elms Beds which in my humble opinion is one of the best views on the canal system. Pity about the pylon in the distance.

We took mother back to Milton Keynes in the motorhome as we had loaded it up with a lot of our belongings which she is kindly storing at her house.

We had a nice steady trip down south in the Bank holiday Monday traffic.

We arrived at mothers house in mid afternoon, shortly afterwards brother Russ arrived with wife Tracy. He also bought with him an array of gardening machinery, apparently we were going to get stuck into mothers rather overgrown back yard.

This is Elsa in the jungle.

Brother Russ attacked the brambles whilst I tried to find the lawn.

Two hours later........

We didn't want to leave the motorhome on the street in Milton Keynes, so with the help of the trusty Britstops book we headed off to a pub a couple of miles outside of my old home town Luton.

Here we are moored up at The Plough public house which is in the village of Kings Walden. 

We had a lovely dinner in the pub, it has a very basic menu and everything is £6.50. We had a good chat with some of the locals and left the pub just before 23.00

I took the dogs for a walk this morning, it was just so lovely, and all this just a couple of miles from Luton

Our overnight mooring.

We will head off back up to Bolly shortly as we have people coming to pick up some stuff they bought  from us off Ebay. Plus our last boxes of stuff  from Australia should arrive tomorrow.
