Al and I went to stay with Chloe and family overnight in preparation for Al’s 70th birthday celebrations.

On Thursday morning we boarded the river bus at Westminster pier and enjoyed a 40 minute journey, with commentary, to Kew Gardens (Al’s Choice). At lunchtime I took the whole family out for a decent lunch and then with me having a snooze in the sun, outside the Orangery Restaurant, and the rest of the family tramping about the gardens, we called it a day. I wasn’t sorry as I had really enjoyed myself but I did notice my legs were feeling rather leaden and I was not able to walk as freely, and as far, as I might have done in the past.

On Friday I took Chloe and the birthday girl (along with little Lara) to the Dulwich Art Gallery to see the Sickert Exhibition. Frankly, it was not to my taste and I much preferred the free permanent exhibition. Lunch, in the street near Chloe’s home and then back to Clavering. A happy time.
