Dead Hamster

I've had a nice day looking after my baby granddaughter Androulla while her mummy runs their restaurant. Shes two months old already, time flys by. Hopefully I will be seeing my other granddaughter tomorrow who is the same age.
The weather is definitely worsening.............Autumn is upon us. Actually, Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons...........I love the colours of the leaves as they fall from the trees, so pretty. It has been raining again and the temperature has dropped a little but it is still quite warm.
As a weird foot note:
My hamster snuffed it passed away the other day. I did love the little bugger, even though she was smelly and noisey.

A Lovely Weekend

We went to Colin's mum and dad's for a long weekend. On the Saturday, we went to Stratford Upon Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare. It really is a lovely place to visit. It was even better purely because when we got there, there was a food festival. They had stalls selling local food stuffs as well as market traders from all over Europe selling lots of food from Paella's cooked up in huge pans, Hog Roasts, home made fudge/ name it, it was probably there.

We went round a Tudor House museum. It has one of the last tudor cobbled streets left in the UK and it was really eerie as it had plague stuff in it and was really awful how they lived.

These two pictures are of the actual house Shakespeare was born in.

We had lunch in a pub and had a look round Stratford. They even have a dedicated Christmas Shop. It didn't sell tat but really lovely Christmas decorations.

At the Park and Ride terminal in Straford, I was very fortunate in that I 'caught' a book via BookCrossing.  Its my first 'wild catch' and I was very excited. I have been bookcrossing since May and I also left some books in an official BookCrossing Zone in Dunstable.
