After a breakfast of fruit n yog, toast n jam plus a full English, we set off to Pickering for the morning. There was a market on and some stalls made a good profit from us. I also bagged a bargain in a charity shop - two lovely bits of fabric and no charge for one of them. Coffee ( yes no cake - honest) was in my kind of cafe - filled with a lively range of crafts. I managed to bag myself a little goody or two for the craft room.
This afternoon we travelled on to a charming village - Thornton le dale - where there was a beautiful country cottage for people to sketch and paint. Me? Well i found the ice cream shop! Fortunately the weather is holding out and it's pleasantly warm. I also picked up a couple of ideas for future craft projects - if only there was time!
Tonight I have been partnered with a poor gentleman called John to play boules. I say poor - he has no idea how bad I am at such games! We have all been allocated partners at random to make sure that we all integrate. I will let you know about our failure tomorrow!
