Home Sweet Home away from Home
"July 30 - Tuesday."
Our daughter took the car because she had a hair appointment and had to pick up her son from a friends house where he went after soccer camp. It was a little overcast. We went and got the bus in front of the house to go to Cheltenham. The guy told us the RT fare was £0.55 or £1.10 for two. Our daughter says she never knows what the fare will be - it just depends on how they feel. We walked around in Cheltenham a bit and went into W.H. Smith where Bob bought some materials to do the narrow boat model that I had bought at the hire place. He said it was a model for adults and was too hard for our grandson to do. Then I walked to the PO to mail a b-day card to mother (which she got really quickly) and post cards to my other grandsons. Mother left some post card stamps there when she visited, which I used. The PO lady said the postage on post cards to the states went up 2p since mom bought the stamps.
Cheltenham was very crowded - almost as much as Bourton on the Water had been the day before. Then we got on the bus and went back to our daughter's house. It was starting to rain a bit otherwise Bob would have gotten off the bus to buy car painting supplies to touch up the dings on the Rover from yesterday and then walked home. I organized the 11 rolls of film I had taken (in addition to the digital ones, and I missed one roll and had to send it later) and printed out the address label etc so I could have our son-in-law mail them in the US PO and I wrote up the canal boat trip etc. Bob worked on the narrowboat model. When our daughter came home, she went and got fish and chips from an authentic fish and chips shop for dinner. Monday, she got Indian food from the Indian take-out place for dinner. Bob liked that better than the Indian food we get here.
"July 31 - Wednesday"
it was really raining hard in the morning - the first real rain we'd had for the whole 2 weeks. We were going to go to Cardiff or back to Gloucester, but Bob said that he wasn't driving anymore because I complained too much about him being too close to things on the left, and besides our daughter needed the car because it was raining. (The other times she's given us the car to use she walked to work - the buses weren't running so early - and took a bus home.) So plan B was to ride the bus into Cheltenham again. But I just didn't feel like it, so we didn't. When our daughter came home, the four of us (our son-in-law was working out) walked up to the nicer Indian restaurant and had dinner (Indus Tandoori), and brought back take-out for our son-in-law. Then we packed and went to bed. Our daughter had our grandson come in and say goodby, and she told him to hug Bob even if he wasn't awake, but Bob was just playing asleep, and he started to giggle when he was hugged. That's because we are leaving really early tomorrow to miss the rush hour traffic around Gatwick.
