A Grand Day Out

Well I have come home to the boat tonight buzzing from the excitement that I have had today.

Some of the friends that I made at Mercia Marina came to visit me at Aston Marina. I know they will all be reading because they are all waiting for their mug shots to appear on the blog!!!

Ha ha you will all have to wait a while…………I have a lot to say.

Talk about laughing, I have never laughed so much for a long time.

We started off with coffee and tea on the boat and a good old chin wag then off we went chauffeur driven by Rob to Trentham Gardens.

groupThe first stop was at Davids Brasserie where we all stopped for lunch…….yummy yummy, a very nice lunch was had by all………..potato soup, chicken and stuffing sandwiches, roast ham sandwiches, roast potatoes, salad……….we were all very good as we didn’t have any pudding……………that was to come later!! Mince pies and more coffee/tea . I feel very full even though we have all walked our socks off today!

PrintWell we visited nearly every shop. Poor Rob, being dragged around all the shops but he did get to have a whiskey tasting session part way round in the whiskey shop. I think he may have needed a bottle of the stuff stuck with 4 women all day.

I got my Yankee candle, Mandarin Cranberry. It smells gorgeous. I have it burning at the moment. This will replace the one I broke last weekend! Dozy me.Well we did have such a laugbarbh trying hats on today.

We were laughing so much it was just so funny!Thanks to Barbara, Julie, Cherrie & Rob

And of course I had to join in also!!


It has been great today and as Wallace & Gromit would say………

It has been a ” GRAND DAY OUT!!”
