Down for Doctors

On Monday we sorted out Derwent6 and travelled down to Kent again, this time Del had a doctors appointment. We had excelled ourselves again by getting a £3.00 ticket down to London from Rugby, so we made the most of it.
We first went to see Al's mum and dad again and we got there just before they were going to bed, we stayed with them overnight.
Then on Tuesday we set off to the doctors and then came straight back to Derwent6. Our ticket back cost £5.00 but we managed to get a fast. All was going well till we got to Rugby where the train suddenly stopped. A freight train had broken down in front of us,and the line was blocked, so we had to go backwards. The driver then announced that we had to go back to Milton Keynes and change trains. Everyone was up in arms.... The train then changed lines and turned into the Northampton train which stopped at Long Buckby.. We got off as we knew we could get the bus to Rugby from there. We ended up getting back to Derwent6 at around 6.30pm and were pleased to see n.b Thema moored up in front of us. Pat ( Del's mum) and Keith were sitting out in the sunshine as we arrived when it was raining down in Kent.
 Pat had also made us a lovely apple and blackberry pie.
 We got Derwent6 warmed up and they came round for pie and drinks.. We had a good catch up till 10.30pm when they left and we crashed out into bed.
