Yesterday Auntie Jan asked if I would like to accompany her on a little retail therapy in Shrewsbury, which is one of my very favourite places to go to mooch and browse.
There are some very lovely old buildings there and I like to stand on the bridge over the river and look at the romantic and picturesque cottages ...
….. and wonder what it would be like to live and work in such lovely surroundings.
There are also some very interesting eateries there, but when Auntie Jan offered to buy me a “posh lunch”, I am afraid I declined. Though I pride myself at trying most things (once) I am a little reluctant to try rabbit as they are such cute creatures and as my friend Sarah has one that lives indoors it seems a bit like cannibalism …. and anyway as Darrell always says when thinking about trying a different sort of meat “…… It probably taste like chicken!”
I did however accept a grand latte and a piece of Belgian Tiffin in Costa’s which Auntie Jan and I both agreed had just the right depth of chocolate on the top, nom, nom, nom! Neither of us purchased anything on our little expedition but enjoyed the companionship greatly, but I did remember to send our friend Hugh, who lives the showbiz dream in Notting Hill a postcard.
