Day 344 – Dirty Car…

Given how wet is has been over the last week, and how muddy the lanes are around here, a dirty car was inevitable. At this rate I probably need to get it cleaned every couple of days…

Day 341 – Grand Old Lady…

Built in 1894, The Grand Theatre is one of Wolverhampton’s treasures. We visited quite often when we lived in the area, and today we took our two granddaughters to see the pantomime. A great show, and a fab afternoon out …

Day 340 – End Of The Day…

I pass this little country church quite often, but never when there is any kind of service going on, so always easy to park outside. It was very late in the afternoon today when I passed by, and I could see the last rays of sunshine on some of the gravestones, so stopped for a quick photo. This gravestone seems to stand out from all those around…

Day 339 – Favourite Watering Hole…

This is indeed one of our favourite pub/restaurants. It’s about a 20 min drive away, but has great food and a very warm and friendly atmosphere. We always take visitors from outside the UK here as it is the epitome of an English pub.

Day 338 – Misty River…

On our way home this afternoon after lunch with family we could see a rather nice sky developing as we drove near the River Severn at Arley. A quick diversion took us down to the river, where we were rewarded with a beautiful sunset, and mist forming on the river. With nowhere to park, and no time to set up my Sony camera, this was a quick shot using my phone…

Day 337 – Afternoon’s Work…

On a cold winter’s day there’s nothing I like more than staying home and tinkering about in the kitchen. Today was an opportunity to make some bread (much better than shop-bought) and makes some preserves for Christmas. The plastic pots are Cranberry Sauce to accompany the turkey, and the jars are Chilli Jelly – perfect for Christmas gifts for friends.
