wow, that was a busy weekend, I need a week to recover.
Saturday we needed to go into town, I wanted to go to a gluten free food fair that was on, as part of gf awareness week, which was wonderful, wandering around eating free samples of cake/bread/biscuits/crackers, all yummy and gluten free - well that's not true, some gluten free stuff tastes like cardboard, but most of it was yummy - I bought a few treats to stock up the cupboards and I even bought a chocolate cream eclair, which I ate later with a cup of tea in the park - heaven.
We'd cycled into town along the river path, it was the first time we'd gone all the way into town, it's about 2 miles, K and E did really well, the hardest bit is getting from our house to the river path, (because of the roads), we wind through the side roads, and get off to cross the main road. there were lots of people cycling and walking, and we really enjoyed it, we'll do it again!
the not so fun part of the trip was buying K new school shoes, hers were rubbing, after a 45 minute wait in one shop, and lots of pairs of shoes tried on we left empty handed, and ended up in the most expensive shop in the world, but of the two pairs that the very lovely lady assistant brought out, they both fitted and so she got to choose which she wanted, unheard of, usually it's if we can find anything that fits you have to have it.
yesterday I braved the world of the car boot, for the first time in about 12 years, to try and sell some of the clutter we sorted out last week. not really my idea of fun, getting up at 6 to stand in a field for 5 hours, and slowly get sun burnt to a crisp (despite the factor 50!), but I sold quite a lot(one bike, one easel, two baby seats, 7 barbies, 6 action men, some playmobil, some cook books, some children's books ..............................), although the car is still packed to the brim ready for a trip to the charity shop with the rest. and I didn't buy anything!
no photos today, but instead a link to something which I found the other week, it made me stop and think........
