Have shoes

We stayed an extra day as the weather was so lovely. Crisp, chilly evenings with gorgeous sunsets and mist rising off the flat common land surrounding the site. During the day the sun was out and the sky was bright periwinkle blue. We got a lot of the things we'd gone for. Boo has new boots and conversers. La ended up with trainers that flash when she walks, gold totally impractical party shoes and conversers and Shaggy also got some conversers. Brilliant bargains, we saved the cost of the holiday and then some with what we bought. If I tell you I got the girls pyjamas from the M&S outlet store for £1.98 a pair you can see how good the shopping is. The girls got their friends presents too.
It wasn't all shopping, we had a lovely day out at Wookey Holes which La insists on calling Wonky Holes, where we explored the caves, visited the dinosaur park, fairyland and made paper. We also saw a superb show which was done entirely by children from the circus school. The sun shone and people were walking around in tee shirts eating icecreams, absolutely gorgeous.
My hips and back are now glad to be home.

Sounds like you had a lovely time and I'm glad because you really deserved it. Pyjamas for £1.98?? Where is this magical place?!

You cannot beat Britain in the autumn sunshine, can you? It sounds like you had a lovely family break - and most excellent bargains. I'm not good in damp caves, so well done you in Wonky Holes!

Sounds bliss Nell. While we had sunshine in Cornwall a month ago, it was bitter cold in the wind. Will your next book be The Wookey Hole Mystery? LOL.

I think I want to go shoe shopping with you. Flashing trainers and gold impractical shoes are right up my street!!!! Hope you're feeling better soon.
