We had a really fun weekend. On Saturday afternoon, our Goddaughter Tilly (see photo on the left) arrived to celebrate her birthday with us. Tilly is the daughter of our dear friends Lesley and Dudley and they brought her to see us after a day out at Legoland. Tilly’s older brother Elliot, Guy’s Godson, came too. We were thrilled to be able to celebrate Tilly’s birthday with her. We had a really good visit with everyone and had a huge laugh watching the animated film “Flushed Away” after Tilly’s birthday tea and cake.

Lesley, Dudley and family went home after breakfast Sunday morning. Although we had plans to try to sort out some more of the boxes in the study, the weather was gorgeous so we drove to Pangbourne and walked all the way home along the Thames Path instead. It’s about a three mile walk along the path to Pangbourne so it is a good hike. We saw loads of beautiful boats, some of them clearly antique but in wonderful condition, and also lots of people out enjoying the sunshine. It was wonderful. Of course, once we got home we had to drive back to collect the car, but it was worth it! Perhaps next time we’ll walk both to and from Pangbourne!

Sunday night we watched Fool’s Gold which we rented on our Apple TV. It was a lovely comedy with Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey in it – my kind of film – a good plot, funny and not too violent!
