At the end of the row was a nativity scene. I snapped that, but as Bob pointed out, all the Holy Family looked pretty miserable!
We wandered round the city instead and found a few stocking-fillers in Charity Shops. Quick lunch in the Guildhall Cafe, then back on to the park'n'ride bus. For the second time in a few hours, we saw a fabulous rainbow.
We travelled back to Southampton, as Liz had asked us to pick up something in IKEA. But it was an online-only purchase so we failed that one! But despite all that, we had a great time together, and picked up a few important items.
Like four candles for Advent and straws for the Mocktails at Saturday Night's UCF Barn Dance
All in all we had a lovely day together, even if it didn't turn out quite as expected.
I trace the rainbow through the rain, confident that tomorrow, these minor disappointments will be forgotten.
