Today has been a weird day it started when we got up and had to get ready to go out to take the car to its MOT.
Now that sounds easy but–I wasnt going to go with Ray but I changed my mind and said we could go around the market while we wait for the car.
We bundled Louis into the car and drove to Whitstable through a lovely empty High Street, apart from two huge lorries parked one in front of the other, one delivering to Iceland and one a dray delivering to a Pub, this created a jam as we tried to pass them in one go and people coming the other way would not slow down to let us do it in one hit.
We arrived at the Garage where I left Ray and just walked about looking at the cars for sale.
Ray came out and said it wont be ready for one and a half hours. We walked to a grass bank for Louis to have his sniff around and then walked to the market.
It isnt much these days as there were not a lot of stalls. Not like the old days when it was a really good bustling market.
We didnt stay here so went to catch a bus to HerneBay but we just missed one so I suggested going home and wait.
No Bus to Seasalter yet so I said lets walk home. Ray said will you make it and I said yes of coarse I will give it a try. As we walked through the High Street a bus came along so we got on it but the driver said it was to early to use our pass and guess what we had no small change on us.
So we got off and carried on walking, it started raining then on and off and the wind got up. it is only 2 miles to home from Whitstable, but I kept walking like I was drunk as I got more unsteady, Im sure I should take a stick for balance.
We got home at last and then guess what –Ray said- oh no Iv left the door key on the ring with the car keys, well you know what its like after a walk and you get home —help I need the bathroom.
I went to Dawn and asked to use hers, she thought I was mad until I explained myself. her son said I will sort it and dashed off.
Dawn and I went round to my house to see what was going on and nobody was there. The door was locked, no Ray or Darren or Louis in the garden. We went back to Dawns and then Darren came in and said he had taken Ray back to the garage and left him to carry on waiting as they still hadnt finished, but he gave me my house key.
I went home after thanking Dawn and Ray was coming in with Louis so annoyed as they had gone out on a test drive and taken it home to lunch. Anyway it had passed and Louis had enjoyed the extra outing, we got in doors and I made lunch but we vowed to always make sure I take my key every time we go out.
Rod Skyped me from Australia and wished me luck for tomorrow giving me loads of useful advice about what questions to ask.
We relaxed and then I went down and just washed the Motorhome over and then it tipped down and we had a thunderstorm.
What a day Im so pleased it has calmed down now.
