|All on time, and exactly as ordered|
We called it a day at one o'clock and decided to try and get to know the town a bit better. School was cancelled for some so we watched the kids tobogganing down the frozen slopes of the castle moat on a variety of home made sledges including a dust pan, a few trays and I'm sure I saw a roasting tin.
Marion entered the wintry spirit of things with a few well aimed snowballs.
The churchyard looked fabulous under a few inches of snow.
We want to use the town's facilities. There's no in point relocating to a place and then doing all your shopping at Waitrose or Tesco online and we're very keen to put money into the local economy as we want the town to thrive (that makes us sound like some sort of big investors but you know what I mean). We popped into the Lemon Tree Bistro for a quick bite to eat - very good. I made an appointment for a hair cut, we visited Olivia from William H Brown who sold us the house and then picked up some flowers from the florist, light bulbs from the hardware store and fruit from the green grocer - fantastic figs. There's a Co-Op supermarket and we will use it but we want to use the local, newsagent, chemist, butcher, baker (and everything else) as much as possible and will try to only buy from the supermarket what we can't get elsewhere in the town. A well deserved lie in beckons tomorrow.
