We are making the final preparations before leaving for Canterbury tomorrow. I finished off tidying the garden this morning, cut the back hedge and did some weeding. Everything looks good for the next three months when we get back. The weather is beginning to turn cold up here in Scotland so I don’t think the grass and hedges will grow much more this year. while I was working in the garden Moira was packing our rucksacks. I tried mine out, it weighs 10kg and feels heavy but hopefully I will get used to it.
We are sleeping in Giffnock tonight with Gavin and Suzy. We will also get to see Hollie before we leave. It is handy staying there as it only takes about 15 minutes in the morning by train into Glasgow for the bus to Canterbury. Its going to be a long ride by bus, we have to change at Birmingham then again in London. Our only worry is that there are delays on some of the routes and we miss our connections.
Thanks to Eileen, Gavin’s mum, and Hugh and Betty our neighbours in Port Glasgow for their generous donations to Pancreatic Cancer UK. The total is now just short of £500.
