After a very nice (if a little damp at first) show I stayed on for a couple of days and went on a steam train trip to Bridgnorth in Shropshire.
It was very exciting, I love trains anyway but this was a proper train with proper tickets and lovely little compartments (so much nicer to have privacy and not have to listen to other people on their phones!).
It was a really sunny day and the view of the River Severn and all of the stations with their flowers made me very glad to live in such a gorgeous country.
Bridgnorth was very pretty with lots of little gift shops like this one in the second photo.
I particularly like the sentiments in these plaques, some sad things have happened to friends recently which makes you realise how precious time with loved ones is.
I am very lucky to have so much love and support from my family and friends and hope that I can be a support to others.
It has lots of historic buildings and a funicular railway to get from the Low Town to the High Town.
A really excellent day out – accompanied in true British fashion by a few pints of very nice cider and fish and chips for tea!
I have a quiet few days ahead which is lovely, going to be doing some sewing and have made a start on knitting Christmas stockings from the free pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits I used last year – only 133 days until Christmas apparently 😉
Thanks for visiting and see you soon.

The Severn Valley Railway is gorgeous – and very paintable, my mother tells me!
It is very lovely, well worth a trip. Have been meaning to go for ages.
