We had a few more days relaxing in the house, on Thursday we went to the International Horse Jumping event out here! which was very enjoyable! watching the top riders compete against the clock, if they managed to get clear rounds. A young English girl who is keeping her horse in Jane’s stable, managed to get a clear round, but sadly she was not fast enough, but she should have been competing in the junior event, which had been cancelled.
On Friday Jane and Dave went camping, so with the maid on day off we had a really lazy day, we caught up with the Xmas Downton Abbey, and the Bletchley circle! very good.
Saturday we walked over to the local Mall, which took us thirty minutes, it is a shame, as where we are, is in the middle of nowhere, no proper pavements etc., definitely need transport out here! We did some shopping, Geoff ordered another waistcoat! then we walked back! having had the normal coffee stop!
Jane and Dave returned having had a good break, the dogs were shattered, and Dave has found out where to buy cheap carpets, next time maybe!
Monday 13th January, Andrews birthday, 35, gosh where have those years gone, I found some pictures of him when he was young, so put them on Facebook, also cropped one of the wedding pictures, I know I am biased, but he is good looking!
Tuesday, Jane had a coffee morning, which was more lunch really, the maid had been cooking all morning, bless her, we had chicken legs, salmon, potatoes in jackets, salad etc., followed by lots of puddings, carrot cake, brownies, apple tart, there goes the diets again. To make it worse we went out with Sisca, Bob and Claire in the evening! before catching a taxi to the airport, we had a 11pm flight which in fact did not leave until 11.45pm due to the Air Traffic controllers over Indian Ocean.
