We have breakfast in our B&B this morning - a bit of a mistake as we would get a better one at Kevin's place.  Well, we will change that tomorrow.  After our disappointing breakfast, we head over to Kevin's place and hang out until it is time for Kevin and Lars to head into London.  We have a lunch engagement with one of our business partners from Malaysia.  We decide to drive into the city, leaving at 11 AM and we have very little traffic, so we arrive shortly after 12 noon.  We find a parking place relatively easily and, as we are early, take a leisurely stroll to the restaurant.  The lunch is excellent - one of Kevin's favorite places in the city.  We have to agree.

 

After finishing the lengthy lunch just before 3 PM, we run some errands and then head out of town.  We think we had left early enough to avoid the traffic, but it is Friday and the traffic has built up pretty heavy and it takes us much longer to get back - about two hours.  Once back, no time to relax.  They boys want to play some soccer in the backyard.  So, off comes the nice trousers and shirt, to be replaced with shorts and t-shirt.  And what a match it was.  We were roundly trounced by the boys - they are certainly getting good at soccer.

 

The rest of the evening is spent hanging out and relaxing in the house.  We have Chinese take-away for dinner, washed down with a few bottles of beer and wine.  Shortly before midnight we walk back to our B&B.
