We were up a bit later as we were meeting Del's Mum Pat and Keith at 10.00am at their house in Welford. We arrived for a cup of tea at the ready and had a good catch up with everything that had gone on over the last three months.. We were also treated with a lovely lunch. Del helped out with some small computer issues they had, but they were soon resolved.. In the afternoon Pat and Keith had Bowling practice at the local leisure centre in Market Harborough, so we took the opportunity to go swimming. It was a lovely centre and a very warm pool which was lucky. We tried not to over do it knowing we would ache a bit in the morning, but guess what.... we are going to ache in the morning!
We then put all the weight we had lost back on with a hot chocolate and a large bakewell tart in the cafe at the Leisure Centre.
While we were having our afternoon tea we got a phone call from Al's Dad saying that her Mum was slurring and dropping to sleep like she was going into a coma. It was Al's quick thinking that she realised her Mum's sugar levels may have dropped and sure enough they were at 1.8 when they should be between 4 and 7.. Alf tried making her eat sugar, as he had no chocolate in the house but she kept dropping off and wouldn't eat. He poured honey down her neck and after a short while the response was slow and her count had risen to 2.2.. Al then told him to go next door and ask if they had any chocolate (as they had a little boy) but all they had was cooking chocolate so he tried bits of that. Lucky a lady in the house opposite had spotted him rushing round holding the phone speaking to Al and she had some chocolate drops, perfect.. All this knowing her Dad had just had a pacemaker fitted.. After a hour Pam (Al's mum) slowly came back. Phew that was a close one. Alf was so worried.....
Pat and Keith meet us in the café and we made our way back to their house after getting some advise from the computer shop in Harborough. We then got their network sorted and then walked back to Derwent6 to get ready for the evening..
Pat and Keith then picked us up and took us to a lovely pub called the Coach and Horses. They had a early bird menu with two meals for twelve pounds and we both had a lovely rump steak.. afterwards a band, J for Jazz, were playing in the pub.
