Holiday almost over... for now

It's been a busy few days.  We watched the Royal Wedding on Friday.  Despite my reservations at having a Royal family at all, I really enjoyed the day which was covered brilliantly by the BBC.  London looked great and the organisers did very well.  A local man in the village where Pete's mum lives was involved in the arrangements for the evening event and he said it was a very interesting affair!

On Friday night our neighbours, Tom and Mandy, came round (the couple who refer to Pete and I as their gaybours).  I cooked a lamb tagine and it worked really well.  We used the blackberries from our home-made blackberry vodka to make a drunken fool.  Basically it's whipped cream, meringue and blackberries.  It didn't quite work as the fruit had soaked up so much vodka, that each bite was like drinking a shot of alcohol.  They left us after 2am.  We were all very drunk.

On Saturday, we got up very late and had a slow walk into town where we bumped into Pete's brother and his girlfriend.  So we ended up having lunch with them before looking around the shops.  

On Sunday, we drove to Grafham Water and walked the 10 miles round the reservoir in a cooling wind (actually quite windy) and a very hot sun.  We were knackered at the end of it.  Here are some pictures from the past few days...
