- Back to London
- [Saturday 31st December 2016]
Left the bunker in the morning, and on the way back to Bristol to drop off our hire car we called in at Louise's, to see her new house, and as an added treat Erika was able to see Jessica again. Spent the afternoon on the train back to London.

More fun at the bunker, a bit of shopping in Usk in the morning, then lunch with Louise and Robin followed by a quiet evening back at the bunker later on.

Slightly more involved journey than usual to South Wales as Paddington was closed, and we needed to get to the middle of nowhere! So a train from Ealing Broadway to Bristol Temple Meads, then picked up a Zipcar there and drove it to our home for the next two nights - a former WWII bunker near Usk. Bec, Dave and Jessica came to pay us a visit there shortly after we arrived.

Fairly non-descript day after the day after boxing day.
- Kempton Park
- [Tuesday 27th December 2016]
I had been keen to go and see some boxing day races the day before, but alas it had just been too awkward to get anywhere without the trains running. As it happens though Kempton Park ran a two day event, and the second day was very family oriented, so I took Erika along too.
