Saturday in Abergavenny

Posted on 2012/03/25 11:32:03 (March 2012).

[Saturday 17th March 2012]
Got the train in the morning to Abergavenny to visit Robin and Vera. We hadn't really realised until it was too late, but there was a rugby game on and the train was absolutely packed. We rushed and managed to get a seat, but then predictably at Reading even more people got on, and an elderly lady hovered rather pathetically by where we were sitting. So of course I had to do the gentlemanly thing and give up my seat, albeit not without being ever so slightly irked that none of the rugby fans who had caused all the overcrowding had offered to do the same.

We arrived around midday, and were met by Robin at the station, and taken back to the house for lunch. Robin's had a bad back recently so didn't want to do any driving this weekend, so in the afternoon we just pottered around locally - we took Vera out for her daily walk (which she has to do on Doctor's orders!) and sat around in their house reading Country Life and drinking lots of tea.

In the evening we went out for dinner at the Angel, which was very pleasant.
