On Monday morning before departure my guru John came aboard to fix a plug on the end of my new aerial for my TV on my computer in the rear cabin. What would I do without him!!?? We couldn't try it out there as the reception was poor.
We then set off for the short trip to Loughborough and blow me down it started to rain...that wasn't supposed to happen. Barney and I were walking the first bit but luckily it was not very heavy rain and did not persist too long.

Mid afternoon our visitors John and Rosi arrived for two nights, staying at the Premier Inn locally. After a great afternoon catching up we we repaired to Caravelli's Italian restaurant for a very good meal.
