“Houston we have a problem”. Well, luckily enough for us, not too much of a problem as it turned out. The bolt that held the jockey wheel had sheared in half leaving us unable to secure it. A quick trip up to see Wesley at Shootash garage soon had the bolt out; now all we had to do was get a new one! We managed to get one at Northampton so luckily we were able to set up camp when we got to Peterborough!
The plan was to set up camp at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough and Jane was going to stay there whilst I went up to Belton Woods to play golf for the weekend. Jane chose this pitch, the furthest one away from the playground………..however what we didn’t know was that over the hedge there was an adventure playground! Oh well I’m off to play golf!
So here are the gang that I joined for the golfing extravaganza. It was a pleasure to play with such a shy, retiring and quiet group of golfers. It is not often that this many Sunday School teachers get together and it’s sad that they can only be spared their duties once a year!
To save a bit of money we made a few sandwiches for lunch from the breakfast buffet……Ammo was the only one that cut them into triangles!
And Hastings was the only one who didn’t manage to drive over the ditch in front of the ladies’ tee. Nobody laughed……….oh yes they did!
Belton Woods is only a half hours drive from the pork pie lover’s mecca, Melton Mowbray ………so it just had to be done!
And I did it, a pork pie with stilton for now and a family size one for next week in Norfolk, heaven!
The sad news was that the pork pie didn’t do my game any favours. Well that’s not quite true…………..I played the back 9 in 4 over par and I lost to the better man. Well done Bradley, it was a great game and I look forward to the rematch at Hockley in the summer!
Bradley was so excited that he didn’t want to waste time going back to the bar. So he adopted this unusual way of carrying the drinks………..I have never seen Craig look so worried that a drink might be spilt!
After a hard weekends golf it was time to return to Ferry Meadows and the chance to catch up with an old friend from the days when I used to work here for Nurdin and Peacocks. It was great to catch up with Carol Cover and talk over the good old days, and to hear of her plans for the future………that cruise with the family sounds like fun!
NEXT STOP NORFOLK!
