London Day Nine

Monday 10 April

This morning I woke up in Oxted – my new home for the next week.  So after a quick coffee we walked in to the village for breakfast.  Oxted is such a pretty little village, just like what you see on TV as a traditional English village, I was expecting the Vicar of Dibly to pop out of the post office at any moment.

    
After a big walk round the whole village we went home and I had a chance to sit out in the back yard and enjoy some more sun.


Next we drove across the border in to Kent to visit Hever Castle – Anne Boleyn used to live there.  Fabulous gardens and magnificent castle/home – well worth a visit.

                
I even got to have my photo taken with Anne Boleyn.


On the way home we had to stop for a stunning view of a field covered in yellow flowers.

London Day Eight

Sunday 9 April

Today was a nice relaxing day at home.  While my gracious and kind hosts allowed me to sleep in they were busy shopping and cooking up a storm for a big family dinner.

The weather was once again superb allowing them to have their guests sit outside in the beautiful backyard.

  
After the party and many many drinks it was time for me to move to my new home, so my new hosts drove me all the way from Egham to Oxted.
