A few snapshots...

I'm back and I have had such a wonderful week. It was so much fun exploring places we haven't been before or at least, for a very long time.
 We found quite a few old wares shops and most were packed full. Judging by some of the prices, I think many of the shop owners LOVE old things so much that they really don't want to part with any of it!

 I think I had an obsession with taking photos of old buildings so you can thank your lucky stars that I have only included a few....this time....

 So much history...
 so many interesting little shops. 
 Of course I had to bring a few little treats home. I'm loving hemp and leather jewellery at the moment.

 I found a lovely old ironstone bowl and an old French book too. 
I'm so glad we took the time out to go on our little trip. It was nice not having time restrictions... and the weather was perfect...

Road Trip!!!

Tonight I am excited! The reason: 
John and I are going on a road trip tomorrow for the week as it is our 25th wedding anniversary on the 16th. YAY! It is SO long since we have escaped child-free from work and all other commitments.
For the first four years after we got married....before there were any children on the scene...we would take three weeks off work every year and travel. We never planned anything much- we chose a direction, threw some camping things in and drove. So much fun exploring. Then, as night fell, we would stop and pitch the tent wherever looked inviting then set out early again the next morning....wonderful! 
Seems a perfect way to spend our anniversary...ahhh...just like old times...maybe just a little older that's all. At least both of us are!
See you when we're back. Have a good week and a wonderful mOtHeR's dAy,
