    First the goodnews after nearly a year

    Mrs t and I got away in EOR the [STRIKE]swift[/STRIKE] slug
    Went to canterberry kent Ccc site nice site nearly all hard standings
    1 toilet block in use nice though
    The other under reconstruction
    individual showers with door
    Toilets the same
    But new to me individual wash basins with door :thumb:

    Bus stop on doorstep of site walked into canterberry
    Tuesday afternoon 25 mins ish
    Afternoon in canterberry and walked back
    Cooked our tea Lincolnshire sausages new spuds and peas

    Weds first use of me new bus pass
    Of course the child bride had to fiddle for quiet money and change
    went to sandwich
    she likes a shop
    I like wandering round the backstreets
    Looking and picturing how life was in days gone by
    Lunch in a pub chicken n mushroom pie for Me
    steak and kidley for mrs t
    Ooohhh and a pint of tolly ale (£2.00 a pint)
    Nice this not driving lark
    Thing is weds is half day closing and the shop
    We needed to go in was shut :Eeek::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Anyway back home on the bus

    Thursday I fancied going to Deal
    So on the bus
    it was a bit of a misty day
    Anyway as we traveled to deal the bus went through
    Sandwich ( market day ) as mrs t had a return a big sigh
    Look market day :Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Guess what you can't break a journey on a return ticket
    Can with a bus pass guess who wasn't amused :thumb:
    It's strange
    I always imagined sandwich
    to be the larger and better served shopping centre
    but deal is the larger and better served

    Hotel next to the pier was the lunch venture today
    Lucky find open log fire whole restaurant to choose our table from
    Strange how hard it is when you have so much choice
    hand cooked fresh local cod in beer batter with a pea mash( purée)
    And chips Sooner of had garden peas if I'm honest pint of Guinness
    And a pint of spitfire ale
    the Guinness was best I've had since Ireland
    12 years back
    Enjoyable walk round the town and along the pier
    Two nice little towns still trying to work out where they hide their cars
    You could nearly shake hands across the back streets from window to window
    Full of ignored yellow lines
    Nice mr whippy cone in the novelty shop by the pier
    Back home on the bus good day all round
    All in all quite a relaxing time back in harness Monday child minding
    Two lively granddaughters 18 mnths and 30 mnths

    Friday tipped down during the night going home day as well
    Wasn't looking forward to it van was sluggish on the way down

    Accelerated to forty as usual but sluggish over forty
    Had to row the truck home 3/4/5 slightest up hill
    then start downshifting

    Anyway back home now and gonna find out why it's so sluggish
    In the week:Eeek:

    We like Canterbury as well and have done a lot of bus trips from there, Tez uses his bus pass and I get a rover ticket , makes a cheap day out.
    I would have one now but for the government changes.
    I didn't like the showers there too cramped and cold so used the van showers.
    Be glad when they finish the me shower block there.
    They have a new reception block which is nice.
