March is almost over, and tomorrow we celebrate Easter. The weather was mostly rainy this week, and the river Windrush is quite high up today, when we passed by. There is even a little bit of flooding in the flood fields, not surprising with all that rain.
Last Sunday we stopped by in the local toy and bike shop Denton's, where Eddie spotted this big giraffe. Erm, thanks, but no, it might look cute, but we don't live in a palace.
Running to school on Monday, I snapped this doggy in the window across the road. We see it almost every day in that window, waiting patiently for someone to take it out for a walk. The poor thing was shaved recently, and looks even sadder than usual.
The tree in the Market Square is decorated with red fabric poppies.
The Moon on Wednesday was visible, when the sun was still shining.
Thursday was the market day in town. I was running through, in a hurry to meet a friend for a cup of coffee, so had no time to stop properly. The bread and pastries' stall looked very appetising.
On Friday I took Eddie on a long walk across the town, to the Royal Mail depot, as I missed the parcel the day before. By Sod's law they always deliver when I am on the school run, and they never-ever bother with leaving a package with the neighbours.
The depot was closed, so my package is still there, and these were supposed to be gifts for Easter, argghhh. Now they will be completely useless after the weekend.
It was a rainy day. The Japanese quince by one of the old hotels in town is in full bloom.
Today Eddie and I went grocery shopping. We have guests coming over for Easter lunch, and I needed quite a few bits and bobs for tomorrow's big menu.
We did pop into Gregg's as a treat for Eddie, who helped me to carry some of the shopping, and also visited Poundland, where we got a couple of Horrid Henry books which Eddie hasn't read yet.
While I was checking Notes on my iphone whether I got everything on my list, Eddie was sitting among the loo rolls, grinning. What are you doing there, Eddie? - I'm chillaxing, he said.
Wishing you all a happy Easter!
