FRIDAY 1ST MAY 2009
A bus trip to Sainsburys was the order of the day. I checked the timetable on-line and we got to the bus stop in good time, the bus also arrived right on time. So far so good, we had a vague idea where the store was, but by the time I saw it and rang the bell, we were right opposite the bus stop, instead of applying the brakes in a vigorous manner and sending everybody flying, the driver sensible carried on to the next bus stop, which seemed at least two miles further on. We pretended it wasn’t us who rang the bell as we decided to carry onto to Summertown where we knew there was a Co-op store, a Waitrose and a M&S food store, which should be more than sufficient for our needs. An hour and a half later the number 59 dropped us back at Thrupp Turn.
Colin & Sue pulled up in their car right alongside SKYY after a nightmare drive which took over two hours just getting around the M25. A cup of tea, a glass or two of wine, followed by dinner, soon had them slowing down to boat speed.
