On the Thursday mum and dad picked us up and we drove to Newark station and were soon on the platform waiting for the train, it had been unfortunately delayed by a broken down good train but we arrived at St. Pancras in good time. Dad mentioned that it was the first time that he and mum had been on a mainline train since spending their honeymoon in London over 50 years ago!

That evening we walked into the centre of Brussels and had dinner at one of the restaurants on Petite rue des Bouchers, they are all pretty much the same so whoever offers the best deal take it, we were just happy to get a vegetarian meal with a drink for €15.00 After that we had a beer and a walk around the city taking in Grand-Place and Manneken Pis. After another beer it was back to Hotel Bloom for some kip.

|Mum & Dad - Happy 50th|
Mum and dad went for another Belgian tradition, crepes and waffles, while probably unsurprisingly Victoria and I gravitated back to Delirium. It was Saturday evening and the bar was bouncing, we had a Cookie Beer, Floris Frais, Floris Ninkeberry and St' Idesbald Blonde.

At Kings Cross we walked over to St. Pancras and were soon on the train back to Newark and were home by 10:30PM.
