2018-07-22 – Off to London.

Today we are off to London.  I attended the funeral of an old friend a couple of months ago, and we are going to meet with a bunch of his friends to scatter his ashes in the garden that he used to love so much.   We drop the dog off at my wife’s youngest son’s house in Hevingham, and then drive to North Walsham where we grab a bottle of wine (to give to our hosts) and catch the train to begin the journey to Hither Green.

We arrive at Hither Green at a shade after 3pm, and get stuck in to some food, drink and conversation, before our hosts say a few words and our friends ashes are scattered amongst the beautiful flowers at the bottom of the garden.  It’s a real flying visit for us – our train journey home starts at 5.29pm from Hither Green station, so we say our goodbyes and begin our return trip to North Walsham.

We are both absolutely shattered by the time we have collected the dog from Hevingham and driven home to Southrepps, and it’s not even 10pm – it is time for bed, though!
