A day out on a Monday

An early entry yesterday and a later one  today ,I went out yesterday ,so  have spent all morning catching up on your journals ,I cant seem to settle to my own journal until I have cleared all the emails .Which has been quite pleasant sitting here in the lounge with the patio door open ,and the sunshine streaming in ,not too hot, very comfotable ,I caught the bus to Peterborough ,with my pentioners pass it cost a pound for a single ,the driver told me it wouldnt cost anything, if Igot off at Ponders Bridge......I asked him why would I get off there  ?dear little village but nothing there ! ,his reply 'quite' thats as far as the free pass goes for pentioners ,then we are into another area ,crazy or what ?I sat on the bus idly aware that I should be taking pictures of the very picturesque poppys bordering fields of ripening crops,but sorry I didnt I just sat enjoying the ride ,which takes threequarters of an hour .....I arrived in Peterborough , I browsed ,I window shopped ,bought a few bits of nothing much ,made my way to Asda ,bought a few bits in there ,then got a Taxi to Kates house had a lovely afternoon with her ,looking at her holiday pictures of them all in Alcudia ,and hearing all their holiday storys ,we popped down to see Sharon ,who now she has given up the pub ,has now taken on the job of assistant steward at the working mans club ,so she was getting ready to go to work,still nice to see her ,she doesnt like her picture taken ,but I took it anyway ...Kates Matthew meanwhile was keen to show me his new tee shirt ,and tell me all about going scuba diving ,whilst on holiday ,Maurice arrived from work,we called in at Jean and Petes on the way home..... Maurice and Pete are exploring the archives ,Petes maternal Grandfather ,was a Harley and they think they have found a link with the Harley Davidson motor bike ,so as Maurice had gleaned some more information ,he wanted to pass it on to Pete .......So that was my day ,How did I find time to work full time ? Have a lovely day everyone

Too nice to use just once Ally and Lynn xx

Hi Jan ,that was a nice unexpected visit last night .I liked the cardigan you had knitted.Funny how the free bus pass only goes as far as Ponders Bridge,I think thats where I went with Pete in the Lorry the day before Gary was born,think it was to load potatoes ,not that I helped him!!! Like your graphic window with the blinds opening and closing.........Love Jeanxx

Until april this year then the bus passes only covered certain areas up here...now they cover the WHOLE of scotland and the travel is FREE to go anywhere :o) I'd love to go scuba diving am so jealous  Caff xxxxx

Isn't it nice to be driven so you can watch the scenery as you go? These drivers don't know what they're missing! I'm glad you had a nice day out and Sharon and family had a good holiday. Ooh! I love Harley Davidson bikes! I got a Harley T-shirt in Boston last year and wore it in Buenos Aires, our driver and the tour guide wanted it! Jeannette xx

Pictures of Sharon and Matt are lovely ~ how silly your bus pass only takes you so far~ (yes that is crazy) ~ Sharons job sounds good ~ after keeping a pub that should come easy to her ~ sounds like you had a nice full day ~ makes you wonder how you ever had the time to go to work ~ Ally

I love that blind opening too and those foxes. You do have busy, lovely days Jan!
How cool would that be, being related to the Harley Davidson! Linda xx

What a lovely day out you had, bit silly your bus only going so far with a bus pass, love the graphics on this page

Hi Jan,

it sounds a perfect day to me, but the your bus doesn`t sound exactly FREE to me.   Perhaps they don`t want pensioners to go any further afield...lol!   My son doesn`t really like his photo taken and usually pulls a silly face to try to stop me. :o)

Wow! I had a time catching up!  I have to say...you had me with the shoplifting story! Even through the part about climbing out the window!  I was right there with your "oh what when everybody hears about it"! LOL  I'm just toooo gullible!

Your home town outing sounded wonderful!  Glad you had a good time. They are probably right about the bus trip.  Don't want us wonderin' too far! LOL

Hugs!

Hi Jan :-) Wonder why you can only go a certain distance on your bus pass. I don't think my mum has that problem, I'll have to ask her now!! Glad Kate and family enjoyed Alcudia. I've been there twice and I loved it both times :-)
love n hugs Debbie ~xxxxxx~
