GOODBYE TO HELEN AND BRIAN. We met H&B for the last time at NZ House and after we had bought some sandwiches at a shop we walked over to Saint James Park where we sat in the shade for a couple of hours.
Then we went over to Earls Court and collected their luggage then caught the Piccadilly Line out to Heathrow. After they had checked in we went down to the bar for drinks and at 5:30 we went up to the departure area. They said goodbye quite abruptly and disappeared through the gates. Linda cried a little but it will only be just over a year until we see them again.
We caught the train back into London and had tea with Alex and Lucy in the nurses cafeteria then went over to the Red Lion for a few drinks.
