Have had a very quiet day here in Peterborough. The day started off not too well as I read of a fellow blogger(Nita) losing her husband to cancer. [[major hugs to her and her family] Please take care. I feel very much for them at this time. It is all very sad and no matter how prepared you are it is always a shock when anything like this happens.
Last weekend we had a new garden centre open on the Eye bypass called Peterborough Garden Park Retail Outlet, which is dominated by a Van Hage Garden Centre which I didn't get into but it has lots of little shops like Le Creuset shop, a cheapie book shop, pet food shop and various other little shops outside - but the reason I went there was to have a look at the New Hobbeycraft store. It was well worth the visit and I think I will be popping backwards and forwards on a regular basis there plenty of everything including items I haven't been able to get readily in Peterborough - I like beading and they have an excellent choice on beads, wool, patchwork material needlecraft wools, threads and lots of things I didn't expect in the floristy department and the cake making and decorating section. Was quite taken with the wool as well quite reasonable on the prices. We took Missy with us althoug she wasn't allowed in most of the shops, but there was a nice walking area outside. Everybody came over to her to make a fuss she is a real little cutie.
We then popped over to see OH's sister and his niece and spent some time chatting with them and introducing Missy. Fluff the Cat introduced himself and flew at Missy and bopped her one and then flew out again. We then came back and started tea. We have had roast pork (Gloucester Old Spot) my home made crab apple jelly which was delicious served up with sweet potato and rosemary roasties, roast potatoes, roast parsnip mashed potato, carrots broccoli and cabbage with home made roasted vegetable and garlic gravy. Very tasty it was too.
This evening I have watched Lark Rise to Candleford and then the Seven Ages of Britain. Now that really is an excellent programme. I have also spent sometime catching up on reading blogs etc and playing catch up with my friends and am just about to disappear to bed.
Take care everyone
