A Weekend in Witney - Huffkins

 My apologies again for the lack of continuity in this post …. you just can’t get the staff! Poor Auntie Jan must be having a heart attack as she is very hot on continuity type issues!

It was so nice to catch up with the Didcot/Witney monkeys who live with Tom the Scientist with the big brain and the Lovely Laura.  I hadn’t seen them since Christmas and they have grown up so much, but not so much as not to want to have a big snuggly snuggle with me!

The Lovely Laura suggested that the place to partake in a traditional Cotswolds cream tea was Huffkins. The Didcot/Witney monkeys couldn’t accompany me as they had to go to their swimming lessons, but it would have been rude of me not to go along and sample their delights of a baked/iced/and filled patesserie type nature……..!

Nom, nom, nom  ….. it was almost impossible to have a cake of choice…..

….. but in the end I plumped for a vanilla slice ….. nom, nom, nom, nom, nom …..”Quelle fantastico cake!” as they say somewhere abroad. The filling was so light it almost floated above my plate!
Witney Bus Service
After my quintessential cream tea I  needed a little a stroll to help it go down, the High Street was very picturesque, like something out of an episode of Miss Marple and then I spied a Witney bus …. needless to say, it was not a patch on our Banga bus, with or without George ……. wherever he may be now.  This thought upset me a little so I walked briskly back to my hotel …… for a short nap.

Have you enquired at Banga about George?
