We were up early on Saturday morning and got ourselves ready to get to the station by midday. We got the train down into London and then across to Reading, where we were picked up and taken to Joy and Steve's. It was nice to see them and they accommodated us in a cosy festive style with Christmas music and a lovely decorated house. It just got us in the mood for us going out in the evening where we met up with some of Al's (old) work mates and partners. We hadn't got together for a couple of years and it was lovely to catch up with everyone. We just had a great time and too much to drink.... fun, fun, fun.!!!After a good nights sleep we were woken up with the thought of bacon sandwiches while Al & Joy caught up with Strictly.
Joy and Steve kindly gave us a lift back to Reading station and we made our way back to Derwent6. Thanks guys for a lovely weekend in your lovely house. We got back just before dark and Derwent6 was freezing. With the central heating and the fire it took a hour to get Derwent6 warmed up, then we chilled out in our own little grotto by the telly.
