Thursday last; I was having lunch with 2 of my cousins at The Plough in Cadsden, Cadsden Road, Princes Risborough. I saw Susan nearly 2 years ago and as for Sonja that’s at least 10 years ago.
We had a lovely lunch and it was nice to re-connect with them.
The weather wasn’t encouraging a walk in the forest.
Edna and I arrived at around 7pm and was collected by her daughter Donna who bought us to the flat we are staying at.
It’s a very nice ground floor flat with a covered and an open veranda. Lots of nice outdoor sun space and the covered one is for me.
After one day I started to feel stranded, I just hate to use taxis to go wherever I want to go. Not only that but when I tried to order a taxi they didn’t understand me, so we had to phone Donna and get her to order the taxi, which made me feel even more stranded.
I rented a car for 3 days, so we could go shopping, eating, casinoing and sightseeing when we wanted to, without bothering anyone else.
I went to see my eldest cousin, 4 days after her 80th birthday. She is still living in Chesham and she enjoys walking her’s and her neighbour’s dog every day weather permitted, she walks down to Chesham 1-2 miles and her neighbour then picks them up in his car.
She has a lovely old bungalow with a split level garden. I don’t think she drives any more although she said she does.
But when she said she had to borrow a car from Rodger I said I would bring some lunch over to her.
We had chicken and salad. We ate in the garden as the weather was sunny and warm. The leftovers should keep Susan happy for a couple of meals.
After lunch we went for a drive, up past Rodger’s, into the Chiltern Hills and back.
It was a very nice day and I wish Susan all the best.
That’s the reason I am going to Copenhagen for a long week-end to see Jul-i-Tivoli (Christmas at Tivoli) here is a picture of said. What I can see is that they have really changed the way its displayed.
When I went some 15 years ago it was just a couple of stands/huts but now! It’s a proper money spinner (and why not).
I am really looking forward to it, as its been 3 years since i last was in Denmark. As usual 1st stop is Pølsevognen (sausage stand) at the airport.
Then pick up the rented car, and drive north toward Frederiksund, where we will be greeted with hot pancakes. Yummy, yummy.
