Thank you Donna for the lovely graphic today ,and thankyou to the file manager for allowing access!
I caught the bus into Peterborough yesterday ,didnt have to pay anything at all I used my bus pass ,Wow something for nothing! I met Kate my daughter in our favourite coffee shop ,and so after our coffee we set off to do some shopping ,I found I had some material left over from my skirt ,so as Maurice said a waistcoat might look nice, I bought a pattern from John Lewis ,so that will be another project.
We first went to the hole in the wall,to get some money ! then got down to some serious shopping ,I managed to buy Maurices present ,and quite a few more Kate did well too ,It was so warm in all the shops in the shopping centre /mall,so we went out into the town and actually sat on a bench and did some people watching,and for Kate to sit for a while, she has a very painful back condition ,we decided to have something to eat ,and popped into Burger King,Kate had a big Burger and frys,I wasnt very hungry so I had the kids meal ,chicken nougats and frys ,there was a method in my madness ,I got a toy ,a penguin that shoots across the floor when you set him off from a little ramp thing provided,Sam was delighted !
After the snack ,we carried on until we both looked like a couple of bag ladies ,very satisfied with our purchases,the town wasnt too busy ,but I suspect the pace will heat up now with just twenty five more days to go ,We got a Taxi back to Kates house,where we were able to have a quick look at our purchases ,and in Kates case get them hidden ,before the boys came in from School,We sat round her big dining room table together ,chatting away about when they were all little ,it was such fun ,Sam had a lovely school photo to give to me ,you know Sam who doesnt like his picture taken ,He and Matt are such lovely boys I feel so proud ,
Martin (my son in law )came in from work, but went straight off to visit his Mum who is in hospital ,sadly she has had MS now for eighteen years and is going through a bad time at the moment,Then Maurice came to collect me ,but he and Sam were busy entertaining each other, drawing pictures for ages ,so yes we had a lovely day .We bought fish and chips on our way home .
Lots Of Love Jan xx
