We have decided that the boat trip thing would best be left until the summer - not a bad idea. Therefore I thought we can all go ten pin bowling this saturday afternoon. Anybody whos interested, let me know by wednesday and I will book up a few lanes.
For this months activity I thought we could hire a canal party boat and go cruising for an evening around Birmingham. Obviously to make this worth while would depend on the number of people who want to go.
For a while Gran has been old, and for less of a while she's been a bit forgetful, vague, and not terribly interested in what's actually going on anywhere. This seems to be fairly standard old age.
However, last weekend when Lucy was there she didn't really bother getting up much, until she was forced to at 4 in the afternoon. Since Mum & Dad are on holiday and I went round to visit Sat & Sunday evenings and we both thought that even given the usual standards of Grans coherence she was unusually crazed.
Since Dad rents a big caravan in Ladram bay every year, so he can spend two weeks flying planes with similar minded people, it seemed silly not to go and stay there and freeload for the week again.
Ladram Bay is a caravan park 10 or 15 miles South of Exeter, next to Otterton, on the South Coast. It's right in the middle of the "Jurassic Coast", basically a lot of very high cliffs and around an hours drive from most of Dartmoor. So there's plenty to do.
