Special Days

Today I wanted to share about my day yesterday. My sweetie and I went and collected my daughter Natalie as I had planned to take her out to lunch. She is now on maternity leave with just a month to go before her baby will be born. I had called my oldest daughter Laura and asked if she wanted to join us for lunch but she was unable to as already had plans to go out with friends shopping. So off we went to the Garden Centre. Lunch was wonderful and while we were there Natalie's partner James came and had lunch with us. I was hoping to have a cream tea too but was too full from lunch!

We browsed the garden centre and bought some items from the Farm Store. I bought a jar of local honey and some garlic dressing oil-we had been able taste it before buying and it was delicious! I also bought some clotted cream and now can have a cream tea at home!! Then off to visit Laura who was back by then from her shopping trip. Cups of tea had before we headed back as Michael was working a night shift.

We stopped at Aldi and it was there that we got some wonderful plants for a fantastic price!! Two large plants and a hanging basket. I was just thrilled! All in all a wonderful and enjoyable day. In the evening I worked on my cross stitch.

I love to share photos and today I would like to share more photos of Bourton-On-TheWater. A truly beautiful place to spend a day.
