Hello friends - yes dear Helen, our holiday has indeed gone fast! In fact we are back on Wednesday morning (it is Monday here in England and we catch our flight at 10.30 this evening ugh...). Our final days have been blessed with great things. The weather has been exceptional - 35 degrees celcius on some days - we need to get back to Australia to get cool! David caught up with some more friends and yesterday we saw David's nephew Michael, partner Sharon and their lovely daughter Lu Lu. We experienced the best english pub of the trip - a wonderful place called the Wheatsheaf - complete with their own vegetable garden and roaming chickens! It is strange to realise that the trip is almost over. It has felt as though we have been away for months and the size of our bags reveals that we have in fact been away for ages. We had to send £100 worth of goodies back via post already. We did this because we discovered that each kilo of excess baggage is charged at £30 per ilo when you arrive at the airport! Ugh!
Anyway - we are both looking forward to the delights of returning - YES Helen - riding at Malabar will definitely happen - can you search for the phone number and we will ring as soon as I return. Chicky - get the fur coat on because we will be visiting soon to check you out. We will upload our final pictures when we return to the land of Lola! All our love and thanks for the fish.
