Bournemouth weekend

On Thursday Chris came home from work and on the spur of the moment we decided to take a special offer Shearings self drive break the following day!

Friday was THE Royal wedding and I did not want to miss a minute of it, so up really early to shower and pack and then TV from 8am until they went into Buckingham Palace for the lunch. What a wonderful wedding and something only Britain and our Royal family seem to know how to do. The weather was fine and Kate Middleton and Prince William looked so at ease and happy.

After a quick lunch we were on our way and made a stop at Thatcham to see Chris's dad who is in hospital, at 97 years old he is just in for observation.

Finally arrive at the Majestic Hotel in time for dinner.

Saturday we took the chain link ferry at Poole and just enjoyed the wonderful weather and countryside. After dinner at the Hotel we enjoyed the company of a couple we met and watched the evening entertainment, an Elvis impersonator, he was brilliant!

Sunday it was off to the New Forest, where the donkeys roam the streets, and a mother duck was seen swimming with eleven babies. Again we enjoyed the evening entertainment a musical act. Monday after breakfast was the journey home feeling relaxed and having had a wonderful time.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
