Today Bob took me to…
…the local council recycling centre on the edge of Norwich! Well, we had loads of stuff in the garage which we cleared out when he insulated the loft, and it just had to go.
However, he did give me a treat en route. We went to the Taverham Garden Centre and visited two of the shops there…
Sew Simple is a brilliant knitting, sewing, crafts shop. It is huge – and I did spend a little money – but it was on supplies for making some Christmas presents, so you will have to wait to see that! Across the courtyard is “Kitchenary” which is a phenomenal kitchen store, with loads of lovely stuff.
I treated myself to a couple of replacement pie dishes – the two I have had for 30 years both broke recently! I also got a Lock’n’Lock bacon box [the lid has warped on the one at home]
Bob went into raptures over the kitchen knives and got himself an Anolon Sandoku
I am putting a picture of this here, for those of you who may have shared my misapprehension that a Sandoku was a sort of Japanese number puzzle!
After these two shops, on to the tip and then home via The Range. Where L&L bacon boxes were £1 cheaper. Grrrr!!!
However I did pick up some cardmaking bits in their Reduced Section and have spent the afternoon watching “Upstairs Downstairs” and “Midsomer Murders” and being really creative.
Bob is struggling through “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” – he hasn’t taken to it in the way I did, apparently!
This evening we are going round to Christine’s for a meal, which will be good fun. I am so enjoying this holiday and feel really blessed.
