Weekend Reunion

A busy weekend for the crew of Epiphany!

Friday we caught up on all the jobs - cleaning the floor (It is so easy without carpets, just a sweep and a mop!), washing and paperwork. John is working hard on our new look website and believe it or not it will be "up" soon! We have been promising it for ages I know, but he is almost there. It may also mean a new look to the Blog...... eventually.

Saturday promised a sunny day and we had an outing planned. A get together of 3 Brunel University Alumni. In other words 2 of John's friends and their better halves and us. Last time we were all together was 1999 at The Black Horse pub by the Kennet and Avon canal. We were on a hire boat with the other John and his wife Carolyn - our friends from Oxfordshire and met with Neil and Nella for a meal.

We all met at Westonbirt Arboretum for lunch and a wander around.

The "boys" couldn't believe they were at Uni 35 years ago!

Westonbirt was well worth a visit although it is in between Camellias

and Rhododendrons

There were some lovely trees, some very ancient ones and some with real character

The sun shone and we had a great time.

We finished off the day with a meal at the Tunnel House, Coates.

This pub is by the Thames and Severn canal Sapperton tunnel portal. The food was good but they were pretty chaotic and we spent ages waiting for our bill. It was very tempting to just leave as we were not sure if they would have noticed, but eventually we pinned someone down.

Sunday we recovered! I scrubbed the outside of the cratch cover where we had had an argument with some trees - I think I got the green off! So now it is the week again and work routine!
