So, we headed back to my sister's today. We caught the Metro back to the station and then the Eurostar to St Pancras. Mr B lugged our bags up and down stairs until we got to our destination.
My old school friend, LD, was waiting for us in London and she and I knocked back (over a period of two hours or so) a couple of glasses of Champagne while Little Miss and Mr B very kindly 'amused' themselves. It was freezing at the station, but we had a good time catching up. It's weird; it can be years between our catch ups and LD and I just slip back into our easy conversation.
Then back to Ashtead, where we decided to walk the mile or so back to Bigsis' house. We had a lovely lasagne waiting for us when we got there and an early night.
