I don't think it will improve anytime soon. Car hire companies sold off cars during the pandemic, as they needed the cash. Now things are improving, they cannot easily replace these vehicles due to the massive waiting times for new cars.

Back in May when we came back we hired a car for 7 days,I think it was between 250 and 300 quid.That was OK.Now we are going to Basingstoke for 2 nights tomorrow,they want £100+ per day.As I said in a previous post we are going by train for £72 all in.

That's cheap Zap.

Glad you thinks so Brian. Back in my youth you could buy a car, drive to Loret ,have a holiday and still have change from 100 quid.🤣

I think we have used them in the past. I don't think they had an office open in CT when we were there.

No, their only office is at the airport.

Yesterday we went to the Weald and Downland Museum in Chichester, home of The Repair Shop.  You can only see the Repair Shop Barn from a distance. It looked like they were setting up for another series. The museum it's self is excellent. They took old buildings from Kent, Sussex and Hampshire and reconstructed them on the site.

That’s such a lovely gentle TV programme.  I used to regard it as too shmaltzy but now like a quiet hour with those clever people.  Some of the back stories are still a little too much for me though

 

Did anyone watch Sherwood - just finished on BBC?  I thought it was very good

 

OHs birthday, so a good excuse for lunch out.

That food looks fabulous. Hope you both had a lovely day.

A long, long time ago in the hippy days, my brother did a trip in a mini bus to Morocco. Driving through Spain they were moved over to the side of the road by a load of police while a convoy of limousines passed by. My Brother went to take a photo. The copper with the machine gun dissuaded him. They didn't like folk taking pics of Franco. About 1965.

After looking at the main cruise companies for the med next year, we have decided to wait and see if they start being realistic.

We have a number of cabins that we prefer and  we have decided to risk £2 to reserve one of our preferred cabins for a Princess Scandinavian cruise for next year.  If the price drops near to the final payment date then I will simp!y call our "Princess Cruise Specialist" to cancel and reboot the same cabin at the lower price.  We have done this with no problem in the past.

Lovely photos.  We like going to the open air museums.  It is so interesting to have a glimpse into how previous generations lived and worked.  We took my niece's children to Avoncroft 8 years ago when they were 6 and 4 years old and they still talk about it.  The younger one was fascinated by the prison and the elder one enjoyed learning to make bricks.

We've been to Beamish a couple of times, a fascinating place, and still haven't seen it all. On a smaller scale, Eden Camp was an interesting afternoon while on our way to Pickering.

When my son was at school the head asked if I could help out in a trip the the weald and Downland museum. You bet!. After the background and police checks, off we went. At the brick making exhibit I was given a party of 10, 10 year old boys to tell them all about bricks...I know about bricks.....10 kids, 10 different directions, going everywhere...not interested. Never did it again🤣

With your sense of humour, I would have thought that you would have had their undivided attention!

When I was younger I was quite serious. I thought life was serious. I has to be serious at work so people could see how important my serious analysis of matters was. Now I'm retired .🤣

Had a day at Beamish last summer and stayed at the Beamish hall hotel, had no luck at all with the weather but loved the place. Eden camp is quite local to us and we’ve been a few times and would recommend it to anybody who is visiting this part of North Yorkshire, both offer a fascinating glimpse into the past👍👍
