A Couple Of Days In Evesham

Since we are not at work for a couple of weeks I decided it would be nice to accept Tom and The Lovely Laura’s kind invitation for Nigel and I to spend a few of days in Evesham with them and Baby Iris before the “touristy” season began ……  but don’t worry about Darrell being left out, as he will be off soon to London to stay with Hugh, his best friend and mentor, who lives the showbiz life in Notting Hill.
I decided that we should travel in style by train and thought that the three changes involved would be a very exciting, timetable mastering  experience for Nigel.
And as soon as we arrived in Evesham I couldn’t help but notice immediately how romantic the railway station was ……….
…………. compared to our very own one in Wolverhampton  ……...
w-ton station…… and how the air seemed to smell so much fresher …..
And then, as we walked through Evesham to Tom’s and said Lovely Laura’s, Nigel and I couldn’t help admire it’s proper river, with its romantic bridges and boat cruises in the summer  ……. it was almost like being on a “really holiday”, but not that far from home, if you know what I mean and it made me go a little bit goosepimply.I suppose I was beginning to feel the spooky Derek Acorah allure that Tom and The Lovely Laura must have felt when they were looking for a place to settle down with Baby Iris.
And then, Nigel spotted the noticeboard with a poster listing all the events in the Evesham Festival Season throughout the spring/summer 2015 ……..
Now, we have a few “exciting” events in our village, like the Easter Monday Fair and the carnival, but we have nothing to compare with the Big Sheep Returns, A National Morris Weekend (for which we would have the proper outfits, thanks to the Equally Lovely Denise), not to mention a Medieval Festival, a 2 Day Regatta and a real live Battle!!!!
I am afraid it all put my mind into an inner turmoil …….

Goodness-Evesham is a very lively place. I can see Nigel wanting to move there at this rate. Hope you can return home without any tears.
