My oldest friend Ali came to stay this week so it has been a very good one; lengthy chats, much giggling, plenty of walking, charity shopping and antique fondling in abundance. All with the necessary stops for tea and cake, of course. We watched Jane Eyre and Amélie back to back, met Sara for afternoon tea (I had so much fun introducing two of my favourite people), spent far too long in Paperchase, discovered the creepiest childrens book (see last pic: Play With Us? Or what!?) and yet somehow we didn't get around to opening the bubbly. I'll save it for the next visit.
I love appreciating this little town through new eyes, I'll be very sad to leave it!
