Back in England

It's been over 2 years since we were back in the UK. We remain in shock at the narrowness of the roads, thank goodness Debbie and George collected us from the airport and we didn't have to drive staightaway! The flight landed early, we were much relieved, the temperature on the plane was almost unbearable, SO hot! Unfortunately, there wasn't much sleep had by anyone so after a quick drink, we all headed to bed (at 10am!) for 3 or 4 hours. We did feel a little more alive later in the afternoon.

We spent the week in Timperley, staying at George's, once again he was kind enough to move out while we were staying over. We made a reasonable adjustment to school, watching the pupils in Dave's old primary school during recess. We spent a lot of time with Debbie and Jasmine during the afternoons, including an afternoon art project of papier mache, we'll be painting the creations on our return north in a couple of weeks.

We managed to catch up with Ben & Liz and Kaz, as well as Stuart & Sarah, who came up for the w/e. We had a great meal out with the extended family and enjoyed a walk in Dunham Park on Sunday, interspersed with rain showers - it is England!
