Back to London

Posted on 2013/09/09 19:31:41 (September 2013).

[Monday 9th September 2013]
An early start (with Erika it would have been anyway) to do the final cleaning tasks on the house, which included a mad dash out in the rain to catch the rubbish van, which came half an hour earlier than we were told it would.

We left before 10am, but we seem to have a variant of Parkinson's Law which always affects us whenever we drive anywhere, and somehow we didn't drop the hire car off in London until 4:30, which, in line with Parkinson's Law, was the time we'd somewhat arbritrarily told the car hire company we'd be returning it. We did make a couple of brief stop offs en route - to buy some apples at a farm shop in Herefordshire, then for lunch in Cirencester (we ended up going to a West Cornwall Pasty Co, in the absence of anywhere more appealing, and I left my umbrella there), and finally a quick coffee at Reading services as we were starting to flag a bit.
