End of cycle celebration

We enjoyed an end of cycle celebration this weekend - nothing to do with the Tour de France, but a trip to Huddersfield to see Katie and her partner George, to mark the end of Steve's first cycle of chemotherapy and enjoy an early birthday celebration.

We had a fantastic Italian meal out on Saturday night and visited Katie and George's new home for the next academic year, a house in town, rather than a flat in the student halls of residence, at Storthes - a long way from anywhere.

The loft "apartment" at Wellington Mill was huge, double height spaces with a mezzanine level - big enough to sleep six - so plenty of room for Katie and George to stay over with us, and more time to talk and catch up on news.

Lunch on the way out and way back care of the National Trust tea rooms at Calke Abbey and Hardwick Hall extended the night away. It felt like a proper mini-break by the time we arrived back in Oxford...just what we needed to set us up for the second cycle of treatment which starts tomorrow.
