It seems a long time since I have sat to write my blog.
We have been away for the weekend to Birmingham to the IATP Award Dinner.
having set off Thursday to leave the dog at my sons we then traveled by train on Friday to Sutton Coldfield. 3 trains latter we arrived at the Belfry
in 2011 the headlines were — World-famous golf course and resort The Belfry has gone back on sale just six years after it was bought for a whopping £186million.
The Belfry’s three magnificent courses have played host to golfing greats such as Tiger Woods and Seve Ballesteros and have been visited by famous fans including George Bush and Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Hotel advertises –As four-time host of the Ryder Cup, The Belfry has always been a byword for world-class golf courses and thrilling moments. Now, following a multi-million refurbishment, our bedrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, bars and spa more than live up to our velvet-smooth greens.
Old favourite Sam’s has been given a complete refresh and offers a new menu for both members and guests. The Brabazon Bar, at the heart of the hotel, is now the ultimate in elegance – perfect for a pre-dinner drink, informal meeting or a big celebration. And just a short step from here is the luxurious Ryder Grill, with its open theatre kitchen and views across the infamous 10th.
Having spent 25million decorating so it was looking its best.Every bedroom and meeting room, sofa and cushion, has been refurbished – offering a touch of opulence, as well as all the comforts of home.
All the bedrooms were lovely.
A wonderful bouquet was waiting for my from Yvonne
She is busy organising a very interesting Conference in the Netherlands.
It was great to meet up with our friends as they arrived one by one.
The Mesowarriors are so supportive to one another and its just great to relax with a few.
Angie arrived with her new toy. A selfie stick 🙂
We went to an early dinner as we were all so hungry. Oh dear it was a disaster as Rays steak was so tough and then Christine said she couldn’t eat hers. The management were so sorry and didnt charge. I said it wasn’t the chefs fault but the butchers as you cant spoil a rare steak. The meat has to be good though.
So Ray had a lovely Ice cream to keep him happy.
My meal was fine.
We went to bed after a long chat together.
Next day everyone arrived and we sat around chatting all day.

‘Very unstable'”At no point was there a risk, but in terms of timescale of opening the line there is now 300,000 tonnes of earth and rock which is very unstable and could fall on to the track at any time,” he said. So that was it a long coach journey. The trains were waiting at Oxford for us and we traveled on to Slough where we got a taxi to my sons. I dashed in to the loo and was shattered. My DIL had a wonderful roast waiting for us. Bless her.
We traveled home this morning and the traffic was great thank goodness it was a great journey and we are safely in doors after one of the most weirdest of weekends.
Our big Mesowarrior meet up in July is coming along well. We plan for a picnic in the park in July.
