I spent the afternoon prior to there arrival cleaning up our little outdoor area and putting up a clothes line (not that common in the UK). Freda's mum (Val) and aunty (Irene) arrive from Dublin to enjoy the long weekend with us. Val arrives in particularly patriotic attire much to the dismay of Irene. Freda helps them both home with a beverage on the way home (which until a short time ago it was legal to drink on public transport).

 

We spent most of the weekend wandering from pub to pub which was great. Wandering is probably a bit of a strech, it was a bit more of a pub crawl. The girls had a bit of a shop and we went to Camden markets. Camden markets is a short walk from our place and given how close we are to Deirdre and Ryan we all went.  The markets are somewhat like Newtown mixed with Redfern for those from Sydney. After having a bit of a wander around the main section in the market, seeing some vintage clothes and antiques we decided to take the mamas in to see all the rave gear found in Cyber Dog. This is an experience for anyone.

We had news from Sydney of a fairly serious car accident that some of our friends (Jenni, Ryan and Kylie) were involved in. There were no serious long term injuries however there were injuries none the less and it was a fairly serious accident. We both very happy to hear that they will be ok. From what they explained it sounded like a wanna be racing driver without a valid license was coming round a corner way to fast on a dirt road. Not surprisingly they all collided. Luckily Ryan drives one of the largest 4 wheel vehicles on the road (Hylux 4x4).
