The family have been and have now departed and we are at Hinckley for another week or so, eye tests, appointments at the quacks, all the things that house dwellers spread along the year, we cram them in when we get the chance.
They arrived p.m. Thursday and Friday we were off to Twycross Zoo.
It was on the 1st of December 2009 that we saw the emu on the Coventry towpath,
Yesterday the Battlefield Line had the pleasure of hosting us, I was hoping for some exotic locomotive and what did they serve up?
At Shenton we walked up to the battlefield centre, the one where the Battle of Bosworth, "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse", wasn't fought.
Boat seems very quiet now the family have gone.
