    Leighton House - a delightful feast for the eyes. Bonus of good company, an all day brekkie and a swift visit to Tate Britain for a selection of Henry Moore sculpture...all very cultured!

    Hi Maria, what time do you believe we would leave London on our journey back?

    April 8, 2014

    • lorenzo

      Thank you all of you for information. Although I don't need a lift, I'll get it as a pleasure, Julia. Whay time should I get to your home, Julia?

    I've had a phone call from the vet to say I have to collect Cat No 1 from vets 2 hours drive away on Friday, which means I've had to reschedule Cat No 2's blood glucose test to Saturday, as have friend here on Sunday and test has to be done in middle of day about 6 hours after last insulin jab (am thinking of renaming house St Tiggywinkle's Home for Middle Aged Defective Felines)...I was really looking forward to this...have a wonderful day, hope to see some photos...or maybe Maria could snaffle an Iznik tile off the wall for me as a souvenir?

    April 9, 2014

    • lorenzo

      Annette, you can be bold enough to require the tile you prefer, rather than asking for a generic Izink one!

      April 9, 2014

    • Annette

      I'm not greedy...whatever Maria can chisel off the wall without leaving too big a gap!

    Ok will meet at Three Bridges in good time to buy a ticket!!!

    April 9, 2014

  • Maria

    Plan to get the 9:30am train from Three Bridges to Victoria - so for those going from TB lets meet at top of relevant platform at 9.25am.

    Alternatively meet at London Victoria (meeting point) at 10:20am.

    From Victoria we will get the tube to High St Kensington, then a walk down to Leighton House for about 11am. Sorry as I have a season ticket I don't know anything about super saver train tickets. Look forward to seeing everyone, Maria

    Working on this Saturday so will have to give this one a miss :-((

    January 29, 2014

  • Maria

    Hi - I'm suggesting the new date of Saturday 12 April when hopefully all the various train engineering works will have been completed. The sun will be out and we can enjoy Leighton House and a walk through Holland Park after(?).

    January 28, 2014

    • lorenzo

      If you make all of that happen concurrently, you are a magician!

      January 28, 2014

  • Maria

    OK just found out that Southern have got major engineering works that weekend so a 50 minute journey is showing as nearly 2 hours! Having to commute during the week, this is really not my idea of fun on a weekend so I propose to reschedule this meet up.
