First stop today was to Morrison's in Bracknell as we had a few remaining items to get before we fly to Dubai UAE tomorrow. Next stop, Longacres Garden Centre in Bagshot. We are meeting George´s cousin Cliff and his wife Mary here for lunch. They have also taken delivery of several items for us, so we are picking those up too ready to pack for Dubai. A great lunch and it was nice to catch up again with Cliff and Mary. Back at the hotel, we got the two largest suitcases packed and sealed ready for the flight tomorrow. We were able to store these in the car boot overnight so no moving of heavy cases in the morning. That leaves just the smaller bags to finish off in the morning. Tonight, we met up with ... read more

First stop today is at Tesco´s in Bicester, as we have realised Theresa did not pack her swimming costume. From there it was a short journey to Aston Clinton, Bucks where we met Anita who has just moved to the area. Anita was a work colleague of Georges when he worked in Ealing. Anita and her family had only moved in on Thursday so most things were still in boxes. We did get to have a look around the downstairs and the garden. Our second new house viewing of this trip. After a quick bacon sandwich and coffee we were on our way again. We did not want to hold them up for too long, as they obviously had lots to do. Hotel for tonight and tomorrow night is the Ibis at Beaconsfield. It is a ... read more

So, it's been a long time between entries on this blog. There are a couple of reasons for that. Firstly, when we left Hungary Ibi and I were so busy fitting in as much sightseeing as we could that I didn't have time for internet, preferring to enjoy the cities and cram in as much as possible than to sit in an internet cafe. Secondly and the main reason. As fate would have it something pretty bad happened. My grandpa (who we brought with us to Hungary and who stayed with relatives as we went to enjoy our tour) passed away. Here, in his birthplace, Hungary. This was a huge shock to us and something we could never have prepared for. I am very close to my pa and so is my Mum. She visits him ... read more
