First of all I had to go to get a routine blood test done at our local hospital!
It is very close to an area we used to visit years ago so I had promised myself a coffee and cake afterwards (err...my test was for my blood sugar...but you didn't read that!!!)
We didn't go in here,if I had a hot chocolate I wouldn't have cake!
We headed for an old favourite, Burton Road Bakery!
I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday
After last week's hubby overload I don't have a shot this week as we had to sit side by side, space was a bit tight!!
Just after taking this photo it filled right up!
Afterwards we had a little walk and saw these lovely Spring flowers for sale!
Best of all was the street art, which definitely wasn't there last time we came down here!
Now, you're thinking, what about the rescue...
We went out this afternoon, planning to take a long walk around the village..
...this is just outside the main gate and the river is at the red wall at the end of the road (notice the lovely newly resurfaced road!)
When we got to the river we saw this...
It was a crew from the fire brigade having a practice rescue - the man we spoke to on the bank was happy not to be one of the ones in the water!!!
The water coming over the weir was flowing quite fast and although there was a pulley system to help them up they finally had to abandon their plan and get out onto the ramp.
We spent some time there and got quite cold so we had to have our walk to get warm..
..the crocuses are flowering on the nearby green..
...and finally the church on the corner which was hidden by the tree last time I showed you!
I will be around for some of tomorrow so hope to see you then!
Thanks for looking, Chris
