The new camera was ordered on Saturday and it was delivered to Giles on Tuesday, we have always had excellent service from Amazon.
Tuesday was a gentle day, with not nearly as much rain as forecast, I managed to find the energy to clean another of the venetian blinds and also all the windows, and Geoff had a clean out of the cratch. We have to do a little work sometimes.......
Wednesday was all planned that Geoff would walk into Pangbourne, meet Giles at the station, collect the little car and we were then mobile to go up for our baby sitting duties after lunch. We had thought of moving up to Goring after a recce to see if there was space, but Giles delayed the meet by an hour so we decided that was not feasible. First part went according to plan but when Geoff arrived back at Petroc he was fuming......the car had virtually no petrol and had overheated on the journey back............thoughts of the AA loomed......however after giving the engine time to cool down he went back to check the problem. 4 pints of water later things were much improved. It was a good job Giles was not within range...no petrol and no water and we were doing them the favour of babysitting!!!!!!
Anyway we both went up to look after the children but Geoff departed after supper back to Petroc.
Thursday had been the day of departure but after a bit more baby minding we decided it was too late to set out.
The plot was an early start today Friday, this was achieved but in the pouring rain
