First up was Angus on Thursday, after a catch up over tea and cake we adjourned to the Holly Bush at Salt for lunch. Next up was our daughter who arrived at 2am straight from the IOM ferry into Heysham, a two hour drive away. Saturday we all met up with Dot and Gordon at the Anchor in Burton to watch England fail to defeat South Africa at rugby, on the way back to Stone we stopped in the Three Crowns for tea.
Sunday, while the girls went to Trentham for some retail therapy I got on with putting on a second coat of primer on some rusty bits on FL's roof/rail I had rubbed down and primed last week.
Monday more shopping in Stafford this time, I went along as the official bag carrier.

Last up was our nephew Alex and his wife Leigh-Anne over from the States for a week, we also had lunch at the Holly Bush, Leigh-Anne (being a born American] raised an eyebrow when I ordered faggots off the menu. After lunch we had a walk along the tow path to show our guests the workings of Stone locks.
