Dave and I woke up at a reasonable time and relaxed a bit before getting ready for the day. We had breakfast and then took a slow drive to Cara, arriving just after 10. Daniel was visiting from South Africa which was such a coincidence. We had coffee and pastries before heading to Little Milton. On the way we drove past Le Manoir, one of my dream dining destinations.

We had a family lunch with Anne, Stuart, Jane and Evie at The Lamb Inn. After lunch we went for a walk to the lock and it is amazing how flooded the area is.

We then went back to the house and I packed one case before we had birthday cake. After that we watched the Grand Prix in the background while chatting. I then packed the other case and we had a simple Sunday supper of homemade Halloween soup and chunky bread. We finished off the evening with port, cheese and crackers. An early night for all of us as everyone has work tomorrow.
