We woke up at the Hard Rock Hotel in London's Oxford Street and Del opened up his presents and cards Al had brought from Derwent6. We then took a walk and did a bit of shopping and Del brought a couple of T Shirts. It was then check out from the hotel and a black cab to Victoria station where we got the train to Otford in Kent.. There waiting was a hire car and it was off to friends Bernie and Sarah, where David had brought us pie and chips to line our stomachs for a session later that evening..
At 6.00pm we made our way over to Maxine and Grahams at the Moody Mare where Del knew they were having a small gathering, but 40 people turned up and it turned into a bit of a party..
In the morning we chatted with Maxine and Graham and then Zoe and Greg showed up as they had camped in the car park in their campervan. We then all went down to the greasy spoon for a good fry up and bring us back to the land of the living.. It was then back down to Bernie and Sarah's to get ready for another surprise..
The following day, we then had a lovely meal together just like old times (with our sons and daughters)..
We drove back to Derwent6 on the Monday and picked up Tooty. Del warmed up Derwent6 and Al did the food shopping before we snuggled down to recover from a fantastic week...
A massive thank you to everyone involved but most of all my wonderful wife Al. Without her it would never had happened.. ((((HUGS))))
