Thursday 20 April
A nice lovely relaxing day today. Usually when we go in to the city we catch the train to Waterloo and then we catch the Waterloo to Reading home and get off at Egham, but today I got to go the other way and find out what Reading was actually like – it was lovely.
First thing on our list of things to do in Reading was lunch. Because we don’t have sit down Pizza Hut restaurants in Auckland anymore it was a real treat to go to one here. They even serve alcohol!!!
I found a really cool retro Casio watch with the world time built in to it in a department store called John Lewis. I need this watch for the long journey home because my Apple Watch has a minor downfall – you can’t manually change the time on it, it needs the iPhone to know the time and because I didn’t turn on data in Dubai as I had no idea of the cost, my watch permanently told the wrong time all the way to London. It comes complete with a massive instruction booklet so that’ll keep me busy for some of the mega long 30 hour journey home.
After that we strolled around Reading for a bit and headed home.
