Kingston Bridge or with a backdrop of Hampton Court Palace. We grabbed lunch in a local deli and dashed outside just in time to catch the main pack as they zoomed past. And zoom they did. Thirty seconds later and they were long gone - the support vehicles flew past and then it was time for an ice cream and an amble home. We bumped into some friends on the way and had a lovely impromptu catch up - a quick kick about with their 5 year old, a leisurely pint at the local pub and then back to theirs for a glass of fizz on the balcony. Often the best times are had when they're least expected. The same happened yesterday when The B's popped in for a cup of tea on their way home from picking up a mid-century eBay bargain. A couple of hours later and we'd managed to rustle up something dinner, drunk some delightful rose, and put the world to rights. Happy days.
