We were not the only ones to make a new start back in June last year, Lucy also bid a fond farewell to The Castle and the village Tesco Express (now a One Stop …. how times change). She bought a house of her own just down the road, in fact, she offered us sanctuary for a month or so while Riverside Towers was still going through, for which we will shall always be eternally grateful.
We haven’t seen Lu since the New Year, so Darrell and Nigel thought it would be nice if they paid her a visit, especially as Darrell wanted to see her new bathroom, now finished, as he had offered a little (professional) advise on en trend tiling, toothbrush holders and co-ordinating towels.
To get to Lu’s from Evesham, it’s three trains and a bus. The train journey bought back many happy memories of our weekly jaunt to and fro when we first started to look after, the then, baby Iris and as we decided as to whether Evesham really was the place for us.
As soon as Darrell and Nigel stepped off the last train and headed towards the bus station, they smelt the familiar Wolverhampton air and noticed how people were talking ….
…… wondering, if, in turn, people would remark on their “…not being from these them there parts”, their accents now being of a more rural and countrified type nature!
Naturally, the bus journey was peppered with comments about what had changed, looking for familiar landmarks and wondering if they would bump into any familiar faces.
….. a cup of tea and a chocolate Hob Nob on arrival, followed shortly after by a meat feast, thin crust pizza with coleslaw and potatoes wedges for tea …… Darrell and Nigel were back in the Homeland, all be it, as aforementioned, just down the road from whence we originally came, but still Happy Days.
