Sunday 9th June 2013
We've just got back from Market Overton, in Rutland where we were attending the wedding of John and Sarah.
I hired a car for the weekend and we drove down on Friday. Friday night there was a gathering in the local pub for a meal and drinks. On Saturday morning Cath and I drove over to visit Lynton at Eastwell which was only a 30 minute drive away. It was good to see him again, and those dogs of his are mad. With 2 wolves and 2 munsterlanders he and Brian really have their hands full. The wolves are fairly big, but not as boisterous as the dog munsterlander, who jumps all over anybody present. I'm surprised he has any tail left the way he swings it around in the house bashing into everything.
Saturday's wedding went off with hitch, well they did get hitched, but you know what I mean. The evening celebrations went on long into the night, and the food and wine seemed to just keep coming. Needless to say I did imbibe rather a lot of the latter.
This morning we drove back to Leeds and I then took all our fuel barrels to the garage in Normanton. We're now stuffed to the gunnels with diesel ready for our expected departure on Tuesday. Well, that's the plan anyway. Tomorrow we'll shop and get everything ready to depart, and then hopefully we'll pull the plug and set off on Tuesday morning heading for the River Trent, and south towards London. Let's hope that this time we get away clean and that the weather is kinder than it was last year.
