Family time 

We had one full day left of our trip and I’d planned to take my mum, nan and sister-in-law out for afternoon tea. All ladies lunching. It was a nice little tea rooms in a place called Sandhurst, just down the road from my nans.


My nan is a lovely lady and doing good for her 91 years. She’s getting a bit frail these days which is expected but still sad. Earlier this year she gave up her allotment which she’s had ever since I can remember. Her passion has always been gardening and growing her own produce. 


She lit up whenever I used to ask how her allotments were doing. At one point a few years back she had 3 plots on the go! Anyway, she reluctantly decided that she could no longer manage it. It was a huge deal for her.

We had a lovely time there, the food was great and the service excellent. 

I do wish I could sometimes transport myself down there to pop in for a quick cuppa and a chat. I know she gets a bit lonely and can’t get out as much as she used to. I can at least make an effort to call her more.

The next morning we got up early and went to Hythe for a boot fair. We don’t get many round our way. Jude did very well, tons of trains and cars for about 20p each. 


There was a vintage fair on here too, some gorgeous things. A lovely cast iron chair which would have been perfect for our garden by the water feature but it was very pricey. We found a couple of great records though.


We walked past the canal into the high street to the shops. This one was lovely, we added to our record collection again!


We stopped off for an early lunch in here.


Well, that was us done, time to pack up and get back on the road. We weren’t looking forward to the journey but after the dreaded M25 it wasn’t too bad. It was sad to say goodbye, the time always flies by so quickly. It was however, lovely to get back to our home, and our beds. And some crafting……
