Aberystwyth again, and on to another 1000 miles trip...




Another brief visit,but it was good to see the boys...6 years old last Summer.
Daughter has,we think, a hairline bone fracture in one foot..so is hobbling around with crutches and a "Moon Boot". Hopefully we were of some use.

Over to England to see the Pirate's son and family before heading home in cold weather..-8 at 10 am!!.....but at home it was +8!!
We avoided motorways for half our journey....





A full day's travel,if only 320 miles that day, bringing the total to well over 1000.

By travelling this way we have seen much more and learnt many things that we'd have missed by dashing all the way up the motorway.

escape!

 looking one way at sunset last Wednesday
 and the other.....then on our way in the morning at 7 degrees C....
 dogsitting...
 well, 2 dogs, 6 cats, 9 chooks and 5 ducks....
 and meeting The Carpenter's Woodchip for the first time at 2 weeks old...
she is a sweetie...apart from being nocturnal and having a mind of her own!!!! (and is willing to let all know!)

Now we are staying with more family....and go to England to see some of Pirate's family...and back home....
The car has had garage tlc, which will use all our spare money...

something will turn up before we escape to NZ.....hopefully!!
